High taxes force more Americans to renounce their citizenship

High taxes force more Americans to renounce their citizenship

Angry about the latest tax hikes? Each year, thousands of Americans pack their suitcases, rip up their US passports and move permanently overseas to prevent Uncle Sam from taking their money.
In the first three quarters of 2012, more than 1,100 Americans renounced their citizenship and made their homes elsewhere, according to the Federal Register. Available data does not yet include those who left in the fourth quarter, but it is on track to surpass the 1,781 Americans who relinquished their passports in 2011. And the number of Americans who ditched the US in 2011 was seven times higher than those who left in 2008.

Offense?

I thought police were hired to respond to situations appropriately. By nature a "response" can only be defensive. The Officer and his gun are tools of the public that should never be used "offensively" to "intimidate and show power", in my opinion.

Boggles his mind that a gun is a defensive weapon?

How disappointing and he is the Chief? His opinion shapes those of his personnel and his policies. Either he "mis-spoke" (unlikely) or he should resign, glad I left Cali.

Offense? (I guess I cannot delete the double entry)
