Defend The Difference, Please
Suppose you were kidnapped from the waterfront and made to work on a pirate ship. Then you were told you can elect A or B for captain, however you are never allowed to reject being shanghaied and return to your former freedom. Jumping off the pirate ship into the ocean is not a reasonable remedy for the pirates' harms. Same goes for countries. The American national government is not a peaceful business corporation voluntarily joined by citizens, it is a debt-slave-owning organization. Americans are never given a reasonable option to reject the ownership claims of the American government. Attempting to renounce your American citizenship and tax liability and living elsewhere is no more reasonable a remedy than jumping off the pirate ship. I expect some sort of crypto-protected financial transaction system will undermine the logistics of this authoritarian mess soon, when it makes tax collection cost more than it collects.
