One might ask…

That did cross my mind. The most mobile will leave first. Sure, I’d like to stay and make things better but the Congress of the United States isn’t making the best case to stay in this country or retain citizenship. Nothing about being a human being says I owe allegiance to a COUNTRY, especially one that openly claims to not want me. They have a responsibility in this relationship, too.

American taxes are still owed so the IRS would still assess the penalty unless we just renounced citizenship.
