Cost of Renouncing US Citizenship Goes From Free In 2010 to 450$, And Now It's Been Jacked to $2,350

Chris | InformationLiberation

Four years ago renouncing your U.S. citizenship rightly cost you nothing. As you are forgoing all the "benefits" you were going to receive, renouncing all said benefits saves taxpayers money (unless, of course, you're one of those evil, greedy, rich people who pays more into the system than you get out).

Despite this being the case, in 2010 a $450 fee was slapped onto people to charge them for the "service."

Now, that renunciation fee was just jacked up 422% to $2350.

While rich people may be able to afford to pay the tax, poor people no longer have the "privilege" to renounce their citizenship.

This is clearly a punitive tax designed to punish people for leaving the supposed "Freest Country on Earth™."

If such hikes continue at the current rate, renouncing in 2018 may cost you ten grand.

Citizenship is another make-believe ideal, programmed into people's minds by gov. inc. Mankind is inherent to planet earth, regardless of what ideology is constructed around us. The government has no inherent claim on human beings.

98155 actually they DO have a legal claim to your body, labor, and assets. you have much to learn about legalities and the current state of humanity.

17256 What have you been smoking? Nobody owns you unless you let them! No one can make a person into anything they don't want to be unless they let them! Haven't you heard of that old saying "you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink it? Besides slavery ended with the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863. No one, not even a government, can excercise ownership over any human being!!!

@nonymous 98155, I can write up a bunch of ideas on paper and call those ideas "laws." The trick is getting people to believe in, and, follow, those laws. Your belief in in those laws is the only thing that makes them real - in other words.

A friend of mine posted on this site once, something that went like - to start a religion, it takes only one unreasonable person and a following. The same logic can be "applied" to empires, such as the one we live in.

Also, the link you posted has some unsettling implications. The word "applied" is used overtly, so that it is seemingly unthreatening, but, if you were to audit the word, the constructs of the government's matrix begins to reveal itself.

12257 Sure, "the trick is to get people to believe in, and follow, those laws" and "nobody owns you unless you let them" BUT the state has a monopoly on violence and if "most other people" believe in the "state's right of ownership", you have to "toe the line" because if you don't and are too blatant about it, the state will send in "the police" to humiliate you, beat you up and drag you to jail.

The state can make any "laws" it likes, they don't even have to be constitutional or even fair, they can "enforce them" and get away with it because they know that most of us can't afford to challenge them in court and don't even have the time to try either, so the state profits every time.

@12257, Most of what you've written is dead-on. The odds are stacked us, literally, to astronomical proportions, but, the pyramid scheme can be deconstructed.

My aim is to bring REAL logic to the table. The (CON)stitution is not "law." It's a big piece of paper, with the ideals of a bunch of dead men written upon it. For generations we've been programmed to believe in those ideals but, in REAL life, we are all free.

The cartel doesn't allow me to have an e-mail address. They delete them as fast as I can make them, however, I can send some useful books, if you'd like? You can call or text me @ 559-972-6878.

There's a comment posted in the link above ^ by the only friend I had on this planet. He was killed for something I posted on this site, though this site reported it was "suicide;" (officialdom's term for: "we silenced the truth.") He used to say, that sometimes you have to go back, to go forward. I think, @non 12257, you would benefit from going back and reading some of his post.
