Andrew discusses some of the current Presidential candidates and where they stand on their expat policies. If so-and-so were to get elected, what would it mean to US citizens living abroad? Many of these candidates want to have a residency-based tax and not a citizenship-based tax. Andrew argues that voting for someone is just a passive insurance policy. Instead, you need to have an active insurance policy that will protect you from people who don’t have your best interest.
