John Galt may be a fictional character, but there are many like him all around you, Mr Oblivious, who want nothing more to do than to:
Get the Bloody Hell Out of Here and Have the Means and Opportunity to Do It
And, also, to give you and your Social Justice minions both the literal and figurative finger on takeoff or push-off.
A playboat that could very well belong to a member of the KISS MY ASS, UNCLE SOCIALIST SAM, SOCIAL CLUB!
A growing number of Americans is thinking about turning expat, according to a survey by America Wave and Zogby International.
The share of Americans planning to relocate increased to 2.5 percent from 0.8 percent in 2009. If this number describes the entire population, that means around 6 million Americans are planning on leaving the country.
America Wave's Bob Adams (a Business Insider contributor) found that single people, political conservatives and men were more likely to be in this group.
A shocking 40% of young people said they were thinking about relocating, though few in this group had concrete plans to do so.

Mr Oblivious, now, that reality has partially dawned on you and you finally realise that people would rather leave the bloody country than to live under Obama or like-minded politicians with their redistribution schemes and constant carping on those that are the ones pay the taxes, provide the money to fund the damn government, and are the backbone of the economy, here's more for you:
He cannot do anything without our tax dollars! Leave! Go on a capital strike! Go on an income strike!
Join us and come home from DC, do something honourable there or prepare for impact - oh, and, because we are approaching our credit limit with the Chinese, there are no flotation devices or airbags. Good luck. Credit card declined. They no sell to us.
FDR wanted to increase income taxes to 100% on all incomes over $200,000. Obviously, someone took him aside and told him that his Social Justice programme was just nucking futs. WTF would ANYONE work after he/she earned $200,000, if the government would confiscate every damn penny? If the producers stopped working, what would happen to unemployment? What would happen to innovation? What would happen to investment capital? What would happen to the tax base? What would happen to the economy? What would happen to the Misery Index? What would happen to the social unrest?
