Obama has pissed me off yet again and this time I am not alone. Him or his administration (what’s the damn difference) has directed the IRS to collect taxes from Canadian citizens. You see many Canadians are dual citizens of the US and Canada due to Canadian law, but the US only recognizes US citizenship. So Canadians that were born in the United States or gained Canadian citizenship later are considered US Citizens for life. Only if you go through a lengthy and costly renunciation process can you stop being a US citizen. Even if these dual citizens paid taxes all their lives in Canada they are now being notified that they owe back taxes to the United States as Americans living in a foreign nation. Let me put this even more simply. This effects more than a million Canadians who have never once worked in the United States, have never lived off our more than generous welfare system, they paid taxes to the government under which they live, and many never even lived in the US they were just born in US hospitals. Now millions of people by accident of birth owe hundreds of thousands of dollars in back taxes and the IRS means to get that money by hook or by crook. It is not just the back taxes either. US law states that citizens living in a foreign country must report every dime they have invested. If they do not report these investments they face a 10,000 dollar fine for each bank account, CD, retirement account, checking account, capital investment etc. This will run each of these people’s bill to the US up into the thousands possibly millions. I guess Obama has found a new cash cow to pay for more welfare leeches and Union bailouts.
If these people don’t pay up the US will go after them. It is a felony after all if you don’t obey Uncle Obama and if these people dare visit the US they are in for a nice vacation inside the federal pen for the next 20-30 years. In my mind There is very little difference between what Obama is attempting and what King George the Third did after the American Revolution. Oh you don’t recall that far back. Let me remind you. He sent out royal naval vessels to stop American ships and had every person who had held British citizenship (and who were now Americans) impressed (enslaved) into the British navy.
Long live the Tyrant Obama may his example be remembered for all time
