Americans Leaving Country In Droves

The latest news reports reconfirm a continuing trend we at the Sovereign Society have observed since our founding in 1997; the most recent U.S. State Department figures for 2010 show the total number of U.S. citizens formally ending their citizenship is rising at double previous rates.
According to one web site, the 2010 figure was 1,485, but Bloomberg News lists 1,534. In both cases, the 2010 figure appears to be about double that for any year since 2003.
We at the Sovereign Society have noted sadly that each year hundreds of thousands of U.S. citizens and resident aliens have left America to make a new home in other nations, even though most of them do not renounced U.S citizenship. Admittedly, that number pales against the millions clamoring to get into the U.S., legally and otherwise.
But there’s a huge difference in the economic status of these two groups.
Although the current recession has slowed the pace, those seeking admission (or just illegally crossing our borders) are, by and large, poverty stricken persons desperately trying to better their lot with a new life in the Promised Land. They’ll settle for low-paying jobs, welfare, free education for their kids, and U.S. taxpayer subsidized housing and health care.
Those leaving are the wealthy and the talented – those who have had enough, thank you.
Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr., a leading libertarian, speaks for me when he says: “Let’s be clear about something. A person who decides to give up his U.S. citizenship is not guilty of disloyalty to America; quite the opposite. He could very well be more loyal to American principles than the regime is willing to tolerate. It also does not mean that he is giving up hope for liberty; he may have great hope for liberty, in a different way and in a different place.”

  1. If "droves is 1485 then a "drove" must be about 742. I always pictured a much bigger number.

  3. Well, the actual title of the article (if you click on the link) does not include the word "droves". I think that was added by our fearless leader here on this blog for dramatic effect.

  5. Our borders will eventually be closed to us. They will do everything they can to keep us penned in like animals. The only way out will be by being shoved over the border with what you have on. All your money and possessions will be confiscated.

  6. The same people that are telling the sheep that it is foolhardy to have iodine pills on hand are the same people that told the 9/11 first responders that the thermate-laden dust was safe to breathe.

    Those people are now dead.

    Lesson: Don't trust liars.
