    Well, at least he didn’t JUST send his money overseas to avoid the taxes, export jobs, and PRETEND to be a “true-blue American patriot”!! Great this is associated with “Farcebook” that great “American freedom” movement to pry into everyone’s secrets and private lives, like well, guaranteed in the “Patriot Act”. Ah, the woof and weave of this rug deserves to be exposed and stepped on.

    What happened to your tired rhetoric of take all the rich guys money? He’s leaving with all of his money so you can’t get your free stuff. No fake interest in that today?

    The idea is not to take ALL of the rich guys money, but to have the rich guys pay their fair share. Including corporations, they’re people now too doncha know.

    From what you’ve said, now and in the past, it is better to take all from the middle class and poor and let the rich guys keep all of theirs’.

    Is it the state über alles? Did the state make Saverin successful or did Saverin create a successful venture in the state? The US used to have an environment that encouraged risk and success. California too had that environment. Now people leave California in droves. Should they pay a leaving tax because the environment in CA is so hostile to continued success? It seems the US would drive out even more people if they adopted such a policy. It is childish and a bit stupid and reflects an attitude that we no longer are an innovative nation, only a grasping one. It’s a shame really.

    Tax dodgers are unpatriotic. Don’t give your money to one, and don’t elect one.

    I live in a box. Can I renounce my citizenship, too?

    " but to have the rich guys pay their fair share. Including corporations, "

    Please be absolutely specific. Define in numbers what you personally consider to be the fair amount someone else has to pay. Example if your net income is XYZ dollars you must pay ABC percentage. Not “fair” but give a number. Secondly the top 1% of incomes should pay ABC of all personal income taxes. The top 5% should pay DEF of all income taxes. The top 10% should pay GHI of all income taxes. The top 50% should pay JKL of all income taxes.

    It is easy to ask for " fair" but I challenge you for specifics.

    I think you are not stating the quote exactly. I believe she was talking about not shifting personal responsibility onto society. Also I am pretty sure she is not PM any more.

    ^A LOT of our billionaires made their money only because of what our government provides them. Then they turn around and pinch every penny to death, rather than let it live a life to help others.

    The US is the only country on the planet that has the audacity to tax the income of its citizens outside of its territory. No other country on the planet does that. The only way around this is to renounce citizenship.

    Aside of the fact that you misstate the origin of Internet and ARPANET,or Advanced Research Projects Agency Network, which started as a scientific endeavor connecting super-computers of several universities, your logic is well, illogical, and worthy of Leftist uberintellectualism.

    Irrelevant. The military came from the people and their contributions to the military. Which means you should not consider the state über alles. It’s about the people, not the state. We Jews learned that in Germsny.
