Ron Paul: The “Ex-PATRIOT” Act – America’s Berlin Wall for Tax Refugees





by Ron Paul

The characteristic mark of a tyrannical regime is that it eventually finds it necessary to erect walls to keep people from leaving. This is why we should be troubled by the “Ex-PATRIOT Act,” an egregiously offensive bill recently introduced in the Senate. Following a long line of recent legislation and regulations attempting to expropriate more and more wealth from hard-working Americans, this new bill spits in the face of overburdened taxpayers and tramples on the Constitution.

Current law already dictates that Americans with a net worth of over $2 million who expatriate must be assumed to have sold all their assets and must pay a corresponding punitive exit tax on those assumed sales. The Ex-PATRIOT Act goes even further than current law by assessing a 30% capital gains tax on all future earnings of expatriates. Not content just with this additional tax, the bill also grants the IRS the sole authority to determine whether individuals have expatriated for tax purposes and allows the IRS to bar those individuals from ever re-entering the United States. Finally, the bill blatantly violates the ex post facto provisions of the U.S. Constitution by extending all of these provisions to anyone who has given up their U.S. citizenship within the past decade.

This bill, and other similar legislation, casts a chilling effect on saving, investment, and entrepreneurial activity. The bill was introduced in response to news reports about one of the founders of Facebook who might save millions of dollars of taxes by renouncing his U.S. citizenship. But in their blind envy towards successful entrepreneurs, the bill’s sponsors ignore the fact that they will ensnare many ordinary middle-class Americans who work hard, save and invest wisely, and benefit from rising home values. These Americans may easily find themselves pushing past the $2 million mark by the time they retire, especially as inflation continues to seriously accelerate. If they wish to escape the Federal Reserve’s inflation by emigrating to lower-cost countries so their dollars will go farther, as many Baby Boomers are starting to do, the federal government will penalize them, and continue to penalize them for the rest of their lives as long as they hold any money in the United States.

Unfortunately, the mere consideration of such legislation, even before it has passed, has made American banking customers a potential future headache for banks around the world. They don’t want to deal with the IRS any more than Americans do, and if American account holders become a Trojan horse for the IRS to insinuate themselves into their affairs, there may be more cost than benefit to extending banking services to Americans.

We live under a federal government that has eviscerated our Fourth Amendment rights, that can detain U.S. citizens indefinitely based solely on the President’s word, that assaults toddlers and grandmothers at airports in the name of security, and regulates virtually every aspect of our economic lives. No wonder increasing numbers of Americans feel this government is engaged in outright warfare against its own citizens. Every day the noose grows tighter, yet anyone who sees the writing on the wall and seeks to leave must pay exorbitant taxes just for the privilege of leaving, and increasingly the possibility looms of never fully breaking away from the government’s tentacles no matter where they go. Ultimately, the Ex-PATRIOT Act proposes to control people by controlling their capital, and it has no place in a free society.

  2. All the references this guy makes to "cum, sucking dick, faggots and homosexuality" speaks volumes - IAMHEWHOAM is a closet queen! Those that speak so scathingly about / against homosexuality are usually gay themselves but are afraid / ashamed to admit it.
    For someone that pretends to be straight you seem terribly obsessed with anything relating to the homosexual lifestyle! Straight men that are secure in their manhood are neither threatened by, nor feel the need to attack others sexuality!

  6. Or maybe the money from the shadow government and wall-street is being kept secret. The reason why hes running as a republican party he because he wants to save the party for themselves. Hes trying to save a political party that doesn't want to be save. Its still possible thats he sold he soul for money, I dont think thats ridiculous at all

  7. remember, people who work for money plan on spending it in the present and/or future, Ron Paul is in his 70's and is working himself hard, while not spending a penny on himself. some of the examples of his selflessness are: refusing the lifetime pension that congressmen are entitled to, accepting an income that of an average american, $30,000 or so if elected president. and he still does work on the side delivering babies, sounds like someone who sold his soul for money doesn't it? ridiculous!!

  9. its true that the Republican and Democratic parties both are pro war, but dont think that ron paul is guilty by association, the only reason he still belongs to the republican party is because it is easier for him to get his message out if he remains with a main party. he plans on changing the republican party from within, rather than starting his own. and if Ron paul was receiving money from corporations or a shadow gov. it would show by now.

  11. Yep, that's exactly what Moses did. He led his people toward the death cult of money loving slavers. That darn no good Moses is up to his same old tricks again! Out of reality and into hands of the old money grubbing , wicked Jew bankers.
    The wise and loving leader of the sub-moronic dreamers, wRONg Paul, is the only hope for the lowly, trampled, whiney, AmeriKKKlan babies!!!
    ....p.s. it's the man who, not "the man that". You need to get an edgeumacation.

  13. Bilderberg 2012: The Official List of Participants

    http://www.infowars.com/bilderberg-2012-the-official-list-of-participants/

    Could it be true that such key figures in the USA Government are party to this globalist gang?

    I can't believe it — this list has to be false….

    Director of the NSA & US Cyber Command
    Governor of Indiana
    The National Security Advisor Of The White House
    Senator for Massachusetts John Kerry
    Co-Chair, Council on Foreign Relations; Former Secretary of the Treasury Rubin, Robert E.
    ———————————————–

    It is understandable the rest from USA — CEOs of Banks, Foundations, Finance Groups, Google, sciolistic Professors, and other such private persona — to attend this meeting whose goal is an eventual One World Government.
    As a private organization, Bilderberg may not disclose the Minutes of their meeting.

    But if it is true, that our Government Officials and Holders of Office, are in attendance — isn't there a constitutional law requiring them to give full disclosure by providing all transcripts, so the people they serve, The Citizens of the United States, are aware of exactly what was said and done?

    • Many seem not to understand that we, Ron Paul supporters, are not fighting to create a "new" nation, but to restore ours back to what it used to be and what was guaranteed since Day One by our Constitution (free and prosperous Sovereign Individuals, whereby the Government is subjected to Our Will, not the other way around which is now the Case-in-Fact)!

  20. Ron Paul to WIN — Or America to END 2012!

    Here is the difference btwn Perfidy Mitt and Honest Ron Paul:

    On one hand (more apt: underhanded) — the Mitt (who’s only real support is NOT for him, but AGAINST the BO — the usual voting for “the lesser of two evils” mentality) knows he needs to resort to all frauds and crookedness, to have a chance to win the nomination (in order to lose to the BO). These are the forces of the Dark Side.

    On the other hand — there is Light! Ron Paul’s message of what is TRUE is irrefutable. It has ignited the hopes of all good people in our nation (and around the world) that Truth will win out over Lies, Good will trample Evil, Liberty will prevail against Tyranny, Government will bow to the Will of The People (not the other way around as the BO and the Mitt desire), all senseless Wars will be put to an end (we’ll speak softly again, but also carry a big stick), The Law of the Land will be the Original US Constitution (and all the hundreds-of-thousands of OPPRESSIVE Laws, Rules and Regulations passed unconstitutionally will be NEGATED), that the Citizen will be Sovereign AGAIN (and Government will become the Subject), that US Money will have Intrinsic Value AGAIN (not Promissory Notes printed ad hoc by a Private and Corrupted to the CORE Organization: The Feds) thus guaranteeing Prosperity once again…and the list goes on!

    Despite the organized effort by the controlled media (here and abroad) and the nefarious means of our crooked politicians and their hired thugs, The People have embraced the Last American Patriot — Dr. Ron Paul — and the liberty flame that burns within us WILL NEVER be extinguished!

    Our time is NOW (since we’ll reach the Point of No Return if the BO or the Mitt steal our Nation away from US) — We, the REAL AMERICAN PEOPLE, will fight for this cause that is Just and Honorable! You, the Despots in Power NOW, may spill our blood, but unless you kill us all, We, The Real American People, WILL END your reign of tyranny and corruption!

    Ron Paul to WIN — Or America to END 2012!
    (there are no other options!)
