Another cross-post from Maple Sandbox: Abolish FATCA Petition from Replublicans Overseas Now Online
The actual link to this Petition is: https://www.abolishfatca.com/live/
I, a person who has now officially renounced and am no longer a US citizen, have signed and sent my *online signature* for this Petition. In my comment, I cited that my son, with a *mental incapacity*, and others like him, are “entrapped” into a *supposed* US citizenship and absurdly affected by this.
Note that you do not have to be a Republican or *even like them* to sign this important petition.
Note also that anyone who is not “IRS Compliant” and is afraid to sign this (because of more US-induced intimidation) should NOT sign — that is, unless you are so very, very angry about extra-territorial FATCA combined with US citizenship-based taxation and how it affects you, your family, your sovereign country and its very treasury. There is, of course, a risk of disclosure for you (a service of the US campaign of FEAR instilled into us).
From Republicans Overseas re privacy concerns:
We understand your concern. I knew political motivated reprisal since I grew up in Communist China. Each time I spoke up, the regime could make me to disappear in the night and my parents to pay for the bullet. When several RNC members and I founded this worldwide political organization called Republicans Overseas, one of our goals is to protect our overseas American citizens from the fear of political motivated reprisal like the IRS targeting tea party groups. We believe when you are organized and speak as one voice by voting, you bring the political cost to the equation of the IRS reprisal.
For your privacy concern, we offer an overseas American petitioner or a tea partier petitioner in this country to select a button which allows us to only use your initials and country or state on your petition when we publish all petitions and deliver them to Congress. Also we will only allow the third parties such as friendly but objective media organizations not government agencies to audit our petitions by a secure sampling process. This gives this petition drive more political credibility. Finally, no government agencies would take a possession of those signatures and addresses.
This method of petitioning is much safer for you than getting signatures on a street corner to put a ballot measure on a November election ballot. In the second case, the State Secretary of State Office would require the Chief Petitioner to submit all signatures with names and addresses for sampling. In this case, the State Secretary of State Office would take a possession of all petition signatures sheets. Nobody knows who is going through those sheets and copying them in the night.
I hope my email puts your concern for reprisal at ease. Thank you for contacting us.
