Actually More and More Americans mostly Young are Fleeing US due to all of these that you've mentioned.

Excuse me? would you like to cite any census statistics that support your claim? Roughly 5000 Americans a year relinquish their citizenship and roughly 9 million Americans total live abroad (but most of them are temporarily abroad)

If you want to know, here are the sources and majority of the people who are fleeing US are mostly Young People (Millennials and Generation Z's), I've know plenty of friends went right away to Canada, UK, Germany and etc. thanks to Trump, Corruption, Lobbyism, Lack of Affordability, Uncontrollable Rising Rent Cost, Student Debts and etc.

The articles you have linked literally support my point. Article 2 emphasizes that Americans living abroad likely do so for reasons other than disliking the current political climate. Article 3 points out that many people who renounce their citizenship are among those already living abroad (and that it's a tax reason). Article 6 is pretty good - but it just says people want to leave (and not that any meaningful number follow through on this). The rest of the articles are wholly based on anecdotes and aren't evidence of a trend.

 

I'm not interested in discussing this further, but I'd like it if anyone had any content on topic though. What else have people found in the capital plan and what is its status?
