Schumer Introduces Ex-PATRIOT Act: Will Banish Those Who Renounce US Citizenship

What comes after Banana Republic? Because America is it - after last week Facebook co-founder, and native Brazilian, Eduardo Saverin announced he would denounce his US citizenship, America has decided to make it virtually illegal to denounce one's citizenship in what can only be classified as the dumbest proposed law in recent history: meet the Ex-PATRIOT Act (Expatriation Prevention by Abolishing Tax-Related Incentives for Offshore Tenancy) proposed by Chick Schumer and Bob Casey. One wonders just how much taxpayer money was spent to pay naming consultants to come up with this witty acronym for a law that can only be classified as utter idiocy. Here is our suggestion for the follow up law: The "GULAG" Act: Get Ur Laughable Asses Gone (although we are open to any other non-taxpayer funded acronym suggestions).

Tax slaves

..can't and must not be allowed to get away!
And considering that income tax is unconstitutional to start with...These idiots are inciting a modern revolution!

When Fascism goes to sleep, it checks under the bed for Ron Paul!

I reckon this

makes Schumer the head plantation slave making sure the boss' slaves do not flee the plantation. One could write a book on the psychology of such a person, position and relationship and it would be all about victimhood, psychopathy, self-loathing, etc. Has America now stooped to such a sick level wallowing in the Dantesque depravity of such sick minds? If it walks like a duck....

Schumer is a tumor...he is a cancer on the host of

Liberty and Freedom. And unfortunately he is my senator. I never voted for him but he wins every time. This is NY after all: lots of Dems, unions, public employees, and other tax-sucking groups.

And to think this man never worked an honest day in his life. Phooey!

Here's a comment from a Reuters post:

'Unless I’ve totally misunderstood every history book that has passed through my hands, dumping citizenship for tax reasons is exactly how America started.'

"The world is a dynamic mess of jiggling things, if you look at it right." - Richard Feynman

I just watched the video.

I just watched the video. So it's OK to do nothing about the trillions of dollars of jobs leaving the county, but one taxpayer tries to leave and all the guns come out. He's a psychopath.

Schumer: "WAAAA WAAAA WAAAA I

Schumer: "WAAAA WAAAA WAAAA I CANT RECKLESSLY SPEND A BUSINESS MAN'S HARD EARNED MONEY!!!!"

Boo fucking hoo.

"ex-patriot act"

haha that's what the patriot act SHOULD have been called. Somehow government worship has become confused with patriotism. Nothing further from the truth.

Some please banish Chuck Schumer for renouncing the constitution

Now, about that FENCE...

Ron's comment doesn't look so crazy NOW does it America?

I sincerely believe Schumer

I sincerely believe Schumer to be in some degree insane. Every utterance, every declamation, every proposed legislation seems to tickle his mind with an exquisite sense of empowerment akin to such lustrous minds as a Diocletian. Diocletian, we remember, curtailed the freedom of travel of Romans so as to collect taxes. Schumer, slayer of freedom, casts his opprobrious tongue, dripping with avaricious saliva, on those seeking refuge from scoundrels like Schumer; nothing besets tenured politicians than rebellion against their rule.

I am an aristocrat. I love liberty; I hate equality. - John Randolph of Roanoke

We love our country so much

We love our country so much we're willing to turn it into East Germany? When do we put up the wall?

If a human can't go from point A on planet earth to point B for whatever reason and take the fruit of their own labor with them then we have no freedom despite all the rah rah patriotic nonsense from people like Mike Huckbee.

I'll never understand the idea that emmigratiing to another country to pursue life, liberty and happiness as an individual sees fit for his or her own life is somehow treason.

SCHUMER... suck it!

Schumer sounds like a TYRANT! Make me ashamed to be from NY!

JB4LBRTY!

Schumer?

Is he the one doing the home porn thing? Showing his scrawny little ass and twittering it to his fugly girlfriend? Or was that some other Dem fascist morphadite?

That was the all too aptly named Weiner

.

Ha! It was Weener. Schumer,

Ha! It was Weener. Schumer, Weener, what's the diff?

Schumer Pick your country of Citizenship

It us or them.. You have the next 7 business days until Midnight to announce your allegiance.
You will not only be voted out this November, you will have chosen your "HOME" Country..

In Liberty Patriots..

Schumer is a real danger to

Schumer is a real danger to America. HE should be indefinitely detained.

Nothing but a limelight ...

...loving opportunist and gun-grab politician like Gloomberg. It is a tall order to unseat this "aberration".

Someone call dual citizen Schumer

and tell that POS to pack his bags and GTFO...Move to Isreal you SOB.
I'm past my ears with these bastards..sorry for the unkind language but this puke and his kind are parasites that need to GTFO. America belongs to Americans not Isreal....( Isreal is intentionally misspelled..F these murderers )

Just one last kick in the nuts, then a final deathblow

He's a dual citizen? lol So

He's a dual citizen? lol So he's just jealous then.

Reminds me of Ron Paul's fence business...

Ron Paul Says The Border Fence Built To Keep Us In
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=esp-ruhkZqQ

It is absolutely astonishing how Dr. Paul can see the future

He not only talked about physical fences - but he went on to elaborate that they could use economic fences to keep people in as well. The man is SCARY good at understanding just how these twisted corrupt aholes in Washington work. It is literally like he has a crystal ball.
As mad as I have been in the past few days over that stupid memo/statement - it is times like these when I have to sit and say you MUST trust every move Ron makes - for he sees so much further than anyone else can.
Ron the Jedi makes Yoda look like a drunk circus clown in comparison.

That is the first thing I thought of too

Thanks for the video link.

They are traitors to this country

and should be dealt with accordingly. Many stood by and watched as Hitler rose to power and did nothing. Will we do the same?

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution, inevitable.

It's not "dumb". Evil yes but

It's not "dumb". Evil yes but not dumb

Most of the sheeple are dumb. This is not dumb.

But it's not new either. Clinton either wanted this or proposed a form of it.

Very well said. That's it exactly.

Only in America!

We are like the mechanism of a watch: each part is essential.

Thank you Steve

Great find.

Next election time we need some Ron Paul supporter to defeat this moron.
