Tina Turner gives up US citizenship

She didn't seek dual citizenship, she went the whole way. We'll see more and more high earning Americans choose to leave the smoking hole in the ground that is being created by the geniuses in Washington.

NOTE: I generally try to avoid Fox "News", but this seemed like a rather simple story they couldn't screw up too much.

It would be an interesting exercise

to poll people in different parts of the world on whether they
would rather have Swiss or US citizenship - don't know that
the US would be a runaway favorite these days..

I'm sure she still loves America - hope she tells Obama where
to go on her way out the door.

As someone from Germany, who

As someone from Germany, who can look at your country from the outside, I just wanted to tell that many of you don't know how lucky you still are. The whole world is a mess and there is no real place to go for us freedom-loving people. Switzerland is in the grip of the European Union and liberty is at the downfall there, too. They may not have a big federal government, but their local governments are mostly run by socialists. I agree it's still one of the best countries to live in, the question is for how long?

However, my advice for all of you is to stay in the United States and take your country back. The reason that we don't have a world government yet, are you! Not this criminal in the White House or the fools in Congress, you! They fear you to the death, because they know that you will fight for your freedom.

Believe me, there is a big conspiracy going on against your country with the goal to weaken, disarm and impoverish you, so you can't resist them anymore. Spreading you around the globe is exactly what they want.
I did a bit of my own research and I'm convinced that this has all been planned by the Communists for a long time. They want to turn the whole world against you. The reason for all the wars you're involved in, is not to fight against anyone who opposes their agenda. It's to destroy the reputation of the United States and weaken your military.

So stay united and keep doing your good work. You'll find no place on earth with the spirit of your country. There is no other country with so much local control over the government, the local police, sheriffs who won't allow the Federal Government to disarm the citizens...
There is no better place to take our liberty back than in the USA. If this is reached in the US, the globalists are finished!

Who created comunism, who is destroying the money?

That would be the same family that all trails lead to. Its easy to blame terorists or corproations or military industrial complex or NWO. These are not real. These are not human.

But the truth is to realy point out the humans that call the shots.

All trails lead to the Rothschilds at the top, sure there are other old familys that are scourges to humanity as well. But stick comunism and Rothschild into your search and see what pops up some time. Then ask yourself is you still blame those promoting and following comunistic politics as the entity that is behind these governments.

I tend to agree with your opinion.

I only we can hold onto it.

Hmmm, except that

Switzerland is NOT in the EU at all, and there is way more Liberty there than anywhere. But nice sentiment.

Obedience to God is resistance to tyrants.

Swiss

I tend to agree they are slowly being absorbed by the EU and I would bet they have strong local business regs. I do not think the socialist EU likes their immigration controls but just wants their money like any robber

donvino

The EU and its equivalents have been trying

to 'absorb' Switzerland for a thousand years. They haven't succeeded yet.

Obedience to God is resistance to tyrants.

He didn't say

that Switzerland was "in" the EU. But it is surrounded by it and the US
and (I believe) Germany have been trying to beat them up on banking
and other issues..

Switzerland is definitely the place to go

if you're looking to swap citizenships.

But

have to wait 14 years to get citizenship after the residency is granted.

It's Simply the Best

She has gone beyond the Thunderdome lol

Can't just give up your USA citizenship

From my understanding, as I myself am a dual citizen, the USA government must first accept you giving up your citizenship. The process is not simple and not cheap either. Something about how you must pay for a series of things like having the oportunity for public education, use of roads, etc. Kind of like what OBAMA said that businesses didn't get to where they are alone, the government got them there.

Essentially we are owned by the government and must pay to have our freedom, much how the black slaves did back in the day.

You are correct. There are

You are correct. There are some high financial costs associated with completely giving up US citizenship. Becoming an honorary citizen, however, is apparently as easy as crossing the border.

There are actually two modes.

You can renounce your citizenship by statute where you pay 1/3 of all your assets to the gov as an exit tax, which is what they want, or you can apply your natural rights, as articulated in the Law Of Nations, to choose your nationality, or correct the presumption of it, if you happen to have been born in any of the several nations that comprise the union of American states. Ther is no statutory process for this beause it is a natural right for which you do not have to ask permission.... or pay a tax. They do not want to acknowledge that this is possible and that they do not actually have control over you.

Isn't that called the "ex-patriat" tax? Started by clinton signed by bush? Like 2 peas in a pod.

but they can do as they please

Now that the constitution is a gonner, there is nothing holing the gov back from freezing my assets or simply putting me in jail. Once you own a slave you dont relinquish them that easily.

tina knows how to handle abusive manipulators. ..leave

...whether Ike or the USA.

bah, I'm wrong...it's about love

she has been living in the town of Kuesnacht, Switzerland since 1995 when her partner, record executive, Erwin Bach was transferred there

good for her

Smart woman. She won't be criminalized in Switzerland.
