    It's pathetic. Taxes are only the start. As an employer, the red tape is endless. I cringe every time I get a letter from a government agency what the next hoop they'll make me jump through to feed their insatiable appetite to screw businesses. That they care about jobs is a shallow, pathetic, lie. They care about control.

    Yeah, but we'll have income equality - we'll all be poor but by God we'll be equal.

    The US has one of the lowest tax rates of all the rich nations and tax rates in the US are at historical low rates.
    These Americans who are fleeing because of taxes got their wealth because they lived in a country that gave them the opportunity to become wealthy. If their greed is that bad, well good riddance and see ya!

    They don't have to renounce their citizenship, they just need to change their primary residence and ensure that they stay out of the country for the minimum time required to 'prove' their non-residence status.

    The only problem with going to South America is that you're on the hook for ALL your services. Security, electricity, etc. The infrastructure in South America is NOWHERE near as robust as here.

    Unless you trust the local cops that don't know you from adam and probably view you as a rich gringo who deserves whatever happens to them for flaunting their wealth.
