'but obviously the money that should go toward primary education should go elsewhere'

How does that make sense?


My bad, I meant obviously the money that should go toward primary education is going elsewhere.

'the USA do not have social programs or medical care. It's just cosmetic'

Put the crack pipe down MisterPanda....I have benefited from those social programs.  My mother is on Medicare, and my children are all receiving pell grants and assistance for college such as subsidized child care.


Well, when you've been spoonfed with the French social security, any system that will ask you to pay up to 2000 USD for a flu is not considered social security. You might have a little something to help people in huge financial distress. We help EVERYBODY regardless of their income. True social security.

By the way, I am not saying taxes are not legitimate, I believe in paying taxes, I just don't understand why one should have to pay taxes twice. Seems pretty unfair to me.

Seems to suck to me.

If you not a U.S resident it's hardly fair paying U.S taxes.

Thanks, I've paid taxes in others Countries which is fair. However, I disagree with the Chinese Retirement tax now imposed. I will not live here forever and there are exclusions to minimize US income tax. We are getting off-topic, the reason Peter renounced was because he felt listing joint accounts with his wife was unjustified. Had he contacted the IRS or spoke with an accountant they would've advised him properly, but he went off the deep end waving flags and claiming persecution.
