    Pretty stark angle in that graph...I will confess I am very surprised at this, I would have thought Hollywood ( and San Fran) alone would have accounted for at least a 1000 a year under Bush...I lost count of how many people said they would leave or slit their wrists, especially if he were re-elected ( they fucked my dead pool too:mad:)....

    I see a modest leap then a Biiiig drop...until:eusa_shhh:.....then, take off time...

    how counter intuitive...eh?:lol: :rolleyes:

    This is very scary. This used to be a country of immigrates that disavowed their loyalties to the old country and became patriotic Americans in their new country. Now it seems people see America as secondary; a place to use and not build up!

    I find it unconciousable to renounce one's American citizenship!

    As do I. Not only would I never give up my citizenship, I won't even take either of the two others that I am legally entitled to... even though it would make traveling in Europe easier. Nope. I am an American - 100%.

    100% agreed. Dual citizenship is a mockery in itself!

    I read an article somewhere that quite a few Americans living abroad have renounced their American citizenship so they don't have to pay taxes on their earnings, I am sure that has something to do with it.
