Nice thought, but it wouldn`t work. The US is one of only two countries in the world that taxes their citizens on income they earn while living overseas, and the US policy on giving up your citizenship assumes that the only reason most people would consider it is to get out of paying taxes. So, when you give up your US citizenship, they still tax you for (I think) about 6 years.

Guess I keep working and being all patriotic and stuff then.

Vested time, and love of county, still makes this the best place for me and my family. People are still coming here from all over the world, must be something here that we take for granted and don't even know it.
