The More the US Declines, the More Arrogant the Government Becomes

Foreign banks are renouncing American accounts. Francisca N. Mordi at the American Bankers Association:
"They're going to drop Americans like hot potatoes," Mordi says. "The foreign banks are upset enough about the regulations that they're saying they just won't keep American customers, and it's giving (Americans living abroad) a lot of sleepless nights."
Expats are renouncing their citizenship.
...I asked myself, 'What am I gaining as an American?' And the cons outweighed the pros."
The danger I mentioned in 2007 (here too) is increasing.

On the IRS's "name and shame" policy: As the ship of state takes on water, the officers and crew blame the fleeing rats.

As Instapundit keeps saying, what can't go on forever, won't.

As we draw ever closer to the edge, all I hear is blah blah Sarah Palin blah blah social justice blah blah Christian nation blah blah marriage equality blah blah blah blah blah.
