Would love to if they could get the Republicans to repeal the law that says I need to pay the US taxes for 10 years after leaving the US and that many foreign banks don't want to deal with American citizens money because now the IRS demands paperwork from them if they do.

The US poisons every avenue for escape and then gaslight you for feeling frustrated.

u/Shadefeaster May 08 '22

Do you make more then 110k per year USD? Everything after that deduction starts getting taxed. 99% of people wouldn't be making that much, especially if they went abroad. I agree it's still a fucked up law though.

8

u/ILikeMasterChief May 08 '22

Wait so if you completely move to another country and earn over 110k/year, the US expects you to pay taxes to them on that? What the fuck? Am I missing something or does that make no sense at all?

What if you just don't pay them? If you're a citizen of a different country, will they try to arrest you? This whole thing seems insane

4

u/Darg727 May 09 '22

US law only works on US citizens or occupied holdings. Dual citizens must follow the laws of both countries. If the country you are staying in has treaties that obligate the country to penalize or hand you over then they will if they feel like it. International law is a bunch of we don't have to do what you want us to, but we'll play nice just enough that you still try to get us to do something.

Compare your taxes to other countries with free healthcare and you'll realize there is a balance in things, here in Quebec, I believe once you pass the 100k bracket you pay around 50% income tax. You're being screwed? I'd rather be alive and in debt then dead and untreated. :)

I've had diabetes for 10 years and haven't needed a doctor once. Now that I'm going blind, I won't even need glasses. I don't have feeling in my feet. Soon, shoe costs will be nil.

Not to mention part of the issue makes itself, preventative healthcare is a lot cheaper than acute healthcare, so free healthcare would be cheaper on the country. But the system is setup to funnel money from the government to donors so that makes it less efficient.

I would not benefit from student loan forgiveness, and I'm still 100% for it.

There's a good argument to be made that student loan debt hurts the economy more than the cost of forgiving it.

But even if I thought student loan forgiveness was 100% a handout, it feels like it's worth paying for the kind of social and economic mobility that free education provides.

its so disheartening when you see other wage slaves who don't evem realize or are unwilling to understand the level of manipulation and propaganda that the ultra wealthy and powerful have fed us to believe that this amount of stress and time and all the inhumane choices we must make in order to simply exist and have basic needs met. the privileged yelling over the unfortunate people's cry for help. if you can't work, just die I guess. the way we treat homeless people, addicts and the mentally unwell will be a dark chapter in our history and future generations will wonder what the fuck we were thinking when we allowed these atrocities to happen for so long as we continue to internalize the lies of the rich and ultimately make the working class blame each other and fight amongst ourselves while the rich pay for things with the monetary interest of their valuables that only grow over time as the wealth inequality continues to grow larger and larger. such a gross display of willful and weaponized ignorance. i hope one day humans can ignore all the borders and differences between us and come together as a single race: human, so that we may focus our effort to lessen human suffering and rid the world of the selfish and inhumane nature of hyper-capitalism and putting profits over human life. fuck these dusty, old, lead poisoned dinosaurs that won't loosen their greedy grasp on the majority through corrupt laws and legislators that are actively detrimental to the majority's well-being.

As you say it is by design - created by the super rich and maintained by the government and there is no country which is exempt from the rule.

I might sound nihilistic but I think it's just part of the human race journey towards extinction.

There are ways to alleviate the issue but it would require most of the leadership to do an 180° to financial gains which will never happen.

yeah, part of it. The Prison system is actual slavery. This is more "Wage slavery". basically get paid just enough to get by, but not enough to be able to invest in the future.

Imagine that, you actually have to work to live. Such a strange concept /s

I thought I was guaranteed a right to pursue some happiness while I'm alive? I can't do that when I have to work all the time just to spend it all on shelter and food to keep me going back to work to afford shelter and food

u/captainhamption May 08 '22

You have the right and the government isn't stopping you from pursuing it. Go for it.

u/smitteh May 08 '22

the government is not stopping the cost of basic necessities from being sky-high which blocks my pursuit

This is a misunderstanding of the rights we have, we have negative rights which are things government isn't allowed to do, positive rights (what you're thinking of) are things the government is responsible for providing.

Food and shelter just falls from the sky comrade, and scarcity is a myth invented by the super rich to keep us enslaved.

We have nothing to lose but our rightful claim to a share of infinite resources we are naturally entitled to for existing.

Jobs are dumb. Rich people should just give their extra money to the government and the government can keep me housed and fed.

I know this is suppose to be funny but when did society get to the point where we had to slave away just for food and shelter? Nobody can convince me that living off the land was worse so many years ago.

But it was

when did society get to the point where we had to slave away just for food and shelter?

Tell me you've never read a history book without telling me you've never read a history book.

Ok smart-ass, I have a bachelors degree, and I understand the troubles of living off the land in the past. That being said, all of the problems with that way of living have been resolved by now with modern advances in agriculture and medicine.

Besides, can you honestly tell me that slaving away until you 60 (now 67) then “retiring” when you’re too old or sick to live is better than living free into your 40s hundreds of years ago?

If you job is not bringing you satisfaction then it’s on you to change it not society or your employee. After all housing and food are not rights
