Help these two women, captured in a nightmare for having the audacity to leave the USA at five years of age and thinking they could live happily ever after in Canada, only to be betrayed by both countries!
Does five years of innocence deserve a life of being hounded by Uncle Sam with threats of fines and imprisonment? Should any US person who lives outside of the USA be threatened like these two five year olds are?

@Barbara – I may be one of the most prolific users of the comparisons to Jews in Germany in the 1930s (and to other targeted people worldwide). I am so because I do not personally care about the tax consequences of FATCA (evil though they are) since I am not a US Person. I HAVE however lived through years when as a politically targeted person (along with hundreds of thousands of others) in my own country, we lived through times of having to find and smuggle things of value and small amounts of hard currencies such as we could “find” (some would say illegally obtain) to secret bank accounts opened (sometimes in our own names and sometimes in names of friends and family members who had already escaped – gasp ! money launderers ! Horrors) in countries like the US, Canada, UK, Australia, Cayman and anywhere elsewhere where we felt that a nest egg could be accumulated in safety pending our own physical escape from tyranny (left wing tyranny in my case, right wing tyranny in other cases, racial tyranny in others again). Real People endure these horrors sometimes associated with genocide and sometimes “merely” associated with fear and abuse. It is for these people that I principally fight against FATCA / GATCA / CRS / CBT. I will never restrain myself from comparing Tyrants and Tyrannical behaviour with earlier examples of such behaviour which had similar consequences. All evil needs to prosper is for good people to say nothing – no I did not invent that phrase but it is highly appropriate.
@Barbara – I dont want to be a bore however …. imagine that you are a Yemeni and you manage to smuggle a few Dinars into an account in Saudi Arabia pending opportunity to smuggle your young family out of Yemen to some more peaceful country once you manage to find somewhere that will accept you. Yet due to the FATCA / CRS evil, your little bank nest egg in Saudi is going to be reported via the Saudi Govt to whoever happens to have power this week in Yemen. Talk about a target being painted on your back. Talk about imprisonment. Talk about possible execution. Talk about Evil. The evil that is FATCA / CRS is way more serious than mere taxation.
I must learn to keep my mouth and typing fingers shut. Nervousinvestor, I’m as outraged and frantic about FATCA/CRS/CBT as you (and everyone else here) are, and I indeed consider them evil of the worst kind, because their perpetrators and believers view them entirely as good.
We’re of all political stripes here, but we all share a common belief and goal re: FATCA/CBT. it seems that the only argument we’re having is about who can describe them as more evil than the other person. You don’t have to convince me. I agreed with your every word before you even wrote them.
All I want to do is fight them for the evil that they are in their own right and not strain to compare them to something else.
And I promise to shut up. No more posts to IBS for at least a week. Sheesh.
Keep posting… there is nothing wrong with what u put out… u are not being mean spirited… just putting out your view… none of us will agree all the time… the only thing we do agree is that… we need to fund this lawsuit… no one will do crap for us except us… if we do nothing… what else will they do to us… What is the point if we all can’t learn something which I do every day from someone’s viewpoint… if I want someone to agree with me all the time… I would chat up the toddler… all they want is candy… will tell me anything I want to hear… Its amazing to me the vast amount of info that is on this mb… guess when I was in university… umm… should have paid more attention to the education then to major in party 101…lol… all I see here is spirited debates… nothing wrong with that…
@Barbara – Gosh dont ever stop posting your opinions, information or anything else. YOU have as much right to express your thoughts, feelings and experiences as do I or any other person. YOUR contribution to this debate is IMPORTANT. Regardless of our (any of us on this web site) other beliefs I believe that we all believe in the fundamental Rights supposedly guaranteed in the Canadian Charter AND largely similar Rights expressed in the US Constitution. Freedom of expression is one such Right ! I will feel ashamed if you stop posting YOUR views.
I love a debate! It keeps us from turning into lemmings. Other points of view strengthens the cause. Makes us sit up and take notice! Despite any differences of opinions, our lawsuit continues and the fight really starts in the courts where the reign of terror will end with this dreadful Conservative government. A BIG thank you to all the people who have contributed this month. We’ve a way to go, but we’ll get there. It’s the right thing to do.
I’ve never seen a FBAR reporting guide quite like this. Reminds me of Gwen and Ginny’s posters…
These are great posters you made! I hadn’t donated previously because I am poor and I support a family of four on my meager earnings, but I sucked it up and donated $150 via Paypal.
Thanks for the hard work for ALL of us runaway tax slaves (I am compliant but would renounce if I were not a Social Security hostage).
Welcome to Isaac Brock and thank you for your most welcome donation.
Did you know can still receive social security after renouncing?
Thank you for your donation, garbo. It’s too bad the donations have to come from the limited resources of persons like you!! The US has agreements with many countries regarding Social Security. You may not be a hostage to losing that if you worked in the US for the required number of years or quarters. (This link shows how it works for Canada: Canada Pension Plan and Employment Insurance Explained — Canada’s international social security agreements.)
The graphics are really good. I sent a few Tweets with them as attached pictures. Just the bottom of the picture shows and most the text (so could be optimised for Twitter which is more a landscape format rather than portrait. Or side by side as a single image.)
So my view that in a tweet people are more likely to view something like this rather than click on a link to an article and read that.
A creative depiction of the injustices.

Imagine the complications if life was determined to be from conception, Orwell!
Freudian slip in that page title, huh: “What defeating morality would mean for the IRS”.
