(INTELLIHUB) — Record numbers of Americans are in fact renouncing their citizenship as the homeland becomes a vast wasteland of filth and corruption.

In fact the numbers of people renouncing their citizenship has skyrocketed 18 fold since 2008, according to a recent report, and are the highest ever as of the first quarter of 2016, with 1,158 expatriates.

Not only are people leaving the U.S. in droves due to the fact that Americans are being treated like third-world slaves, being taxed to death and cheated by corrupt to the core politicians, they are also leaving due to all the sinister human experimentation that has been taking place via chemtrailing and forced or nearly forced vaccination programs, all of which are approved by public law. Not to mention the poisonous tap water issue and toxic shale fracking operations taking place countrywide.

But it’s also important to point out that anyone who renounces their citizenship will likely be followed to their new destination by three letter agencies like the IRS and FBI. “Plus, if you have a net worth greater than $2 million or have average annual net income tax for the 5 previous years of $160,000 or more, you can pay an exit tax. It is a capital gain tax, calculated as if you sold your property when you left. A long-term resident giving up a Green Card can be required to pay the exit tax too. Sometimes, planning and valuations can reduce or eliminate the tax, but taxed or not, many are headed for the exit,” Robert W. Wood writes.
