I am a United States citizen and voluntarily wish to maintain that citizenship.
However, there are many people living outside the United States who the U.S. deems to be United States citizens — who had this “citizenship” imposed on them without their consent.
For these people such citizenship is unwanted, and all would agree that they should not be citizens of the United States. A strong case can also be made that they are not in fact U.S. citizens.
Many of these unfortunate people will comply with regulations, imposed by the U.S. Department of State and Internal Revenue Service, to free themselves, at high cost, from U.S. citizenship and associated obligations to the Internal Revenue Service.
This was just suggested to me as a possible position such people could take:
“The laws of the United States end at its borders.
I have never had any voluntary connection to the U.S. including: not living in the U.S., not born in the U.S., and if born in the U.S. not choosing where I was born.
I will not allow the U.S. to forcibly impose U.S. citizenship, (and the financial terrorism it implies) on me without my consent.
Because I have no voluntary connection to the U.S. I will pay not one penny to extricate myself from U.S. claims of ownership.“
