?? What are they predicting? I'm going to verify this by getting the PDF of HR 22 and read it for myself. This is insane.

    Might as well make the entire nation a debtors prison... Let's see... what is worse, the small amount someone might owe on their taxes or the huge debt the government has saddled each of us with absent our consent? Who is responsible for a greater debt to the nation. The wrong people are being targeted.

      The solution to all this is to only work as hard as needed to live, and await the eventual downfall of our socialist government. I mean, really, why work any harder and just help support the very system that is stealing from you every day? We are fast approaching the day when the movers and shakers will disappear and stop working, as in Atlas Shrugged.

        The only problem with that strategy is a practical one: the tax laws are designed to prevent it. To legally keep enough to live, you've got to really earn about twice that much and pay the rest into the system. Thus the desirability of a Gulch.

      It's not without our consent. We elected these bastards over and over again, even though we saw what they were doing. We have no one to blame but ourselves. The sooner we accept that fact, the sooner we can stop digging, and work ourselves out of this mess.

        This is a reply to blackswan: Speak for yourself. I've never lowered my morality or intellect to the point of voting for a Republican or Democrat for federal office. I worked my ass off for over four years trying to educate the sheeple during Ron Paul's campaigns. And most people, like you apparently, ignored and dismissed me, even though this is exactly the stuff he was warning about. People laughed at him when he said in a debate that when the government needs our stuff because of debt, border walls will be built to keep people and their wealth IN the country. And here we are...

    The government's been doing this for ages. A couple decades ago my mother left the US, becoming an expat. The State of California started seizing any financial assets, including bank accounts, that had her name on them. My brother fell victim to this, as he had an account we started when he was a kid and my mom's name was still on it. They claimed she owed taxes, but she didn't.

    They hate when somebody with money leaves.

      First question? Is Charles Rangel the former Congressional who is millions behind in his taxes going to be the first to have his passport revoked? Or is he on the get out of jail free card list? Who go the jillion pens they use to sign these things. That' s a clue in it self.

        Our more than equal elite betters are always exempt from this or that silly law, most particularly one who a lib and of a racial minority.

      Revoking passports is not the only controversial element in this massive "transportation" spending bill.

        Thank you for these links. I always like to read the bills (except the ACA, I confess I"m still plowing through that one.)

        I like to see how senators and reps of other states vote. I NEVER have to check the roll calls to find out how my senators and reps vote. If it's socialist/facist or any type of Leviathan "ist" - they vote for it. All for the good and the safety of the people, of course.

        I fell down the rabbit hole years ago and landed in Connecticut. I didn't think anything could beat the Detroit Metro area. I was wrong. It is far more quiet and insidious here...and always served up politely with a slight placating smile.

      1034 pages. I wonder how many law makers read the entire document before voting on it? I hope you can make time to read it and fill us in.

        I found the part where it says passports will be denied (page 904). That doesn't bother me too much (am worried it would be abused by the gubbermeant) but what I find incredulous is they have made themselves exempt from any legal backlash by individuals who prove they were wrongly accused. (page 905)

        They want the power, they want the authority, but they don't want to be held accountable. That's what I call BS. It's as if there are teenagers in congress making laws.

          Thanks for taking the time to read the bill.

          Governments will always stretch any rule to it's fullest extent. That is one of the best reasons to have a smaller government and less rules. But to exempt themselves from prosecution if they wrongly accuse is simply tyrannical.

          You may be giving them too much credit as teenagers. Sounds more like toddlers to me. :)

        My guess is zero. The best we can hope for is that someone else who does spend their time to actually read and comprehend these things will truthfully summarize what it says to a lawmaker.

          I guess we could hope for that.

          In my opinion, elected officials are not doing their job to vote on any bill that they have not read. I have no problem with them asking for others advise, in fact I think that is equally important but to not read every word of a bill is a huge disservice to the American people. That is their only job and we would be better served if they spent more time reading bills and less time in front of the camera.

    Any proposal of more than 25 pages has a hidden agenda. The more pages, the more stuff hidden within them. Just one more reason to want to go to Washington and slap those silly bastards 'till they welt.

    Hello UncommonSense,
    I find it quite telling that the government can't use the Visa or passport program as designed and adequately screen out terrorists, while I have the distinct feeling that they will be more effective at using it to keep us locked up here... all while they absolve themselves of any liability for abuse too...
    Regards,
    O.A.

    10-289 is just around the corner I suspect. This law is very insidious. So now they are using the passport as a collection tool for the IRS, among the other tools the IRS has to extract money from us.

    Is anyone surprised to find out that someone employed by the government has come up with a new way to rob us? I doubt it on this forum.
    when the masses storm the bastille even then they in the government will not learn.or understand why it is happening. maybe we should redirect the muslim activity to the washington area.

      in another conversation there is a newcomer JetMec who is familiar with the possibilities of Eastern Europe. He was not one of us but led him to it and demonstrated the due diligence portion of obvjectivist research. In that response are some resources for investigating other places on terra that deal with expatria status. Perhaps you have a foreign language and foreign places of interest. You might investigate them further.....These days we have a system that while it may be monitored is difficult to shut down. So it's a case of seek and ye shall find. the world is much larger than consigning yourself to one small portion which in any case may be untenable. The Gulch is a state of mind and not limited to a few acres in Colorado.

    This is the height of arrogance. The Obama administration feels so magnificently perfect that their job is to shame and teach us all a lesson for all those years where we worked hard and tried to do the right thing.

    This law could still be challenged in court. Even if
    the law itself says that it can't be challenged, it
    still could on Constitutional grounds. As,for ins-
    tance "private property...taken for public use with-
    out just compensation." Also due process, and
    other grounds.--But it's not too surprising. With
    only about a year left in office, Obama will prob-
    ably try to pull all the s--- he can.

    this reminds me of an "administrative procedure" which
    allowed the usaf to discharge an officer for simply being
    in the neighborhood of a sexual assault, without proof
    that he had any part in it.
    . he was a co-worker in the
    reserves with me, and they solicited me for collusion,
    but I did not help them. . and I could not stop them.
    I was able to continue on to Lieutenant Colonel,
    but he was kicked out at Major. -- j

    What does "revoke your passport" mean?

      It means you won't be allowed to emigrate when things become too oppressive.

          Coupled with a border check point system that check outbound citizens something not used at present That means beefing up the Customs, Immigration and Border Patrol units. Thus the police state grows and with a seemingly innocent plausible reason at each point of increase...until you sight the cheese...

        IMO, should the sheeple finally see the light of day and begin trying to escape, and can't. This will only ensure a new blackmarket activity will arise: the underground exportation of Americans OUT of their country. China has had a blackmarket for decades getting chinese out, so why would it be any different here? The porous border with Mexico? Soon, the smugglers will be passing Americans who'll be sneaking their way TO Mexico while they're sneaking in.

        And if every country is just like the others (tyrannical, oppressive, etc) where then, does one go? Yep, the self-proclaimed elites have already planned for this, decades ago I'm afraid. This is the "global village" that Hellary was referring to...where everybody is a slave, no matter where they go.
