    For others, they become citizens of other countries, and then they are limited by how many days they can spend in the US per year. Wealthy people sometimes do it for tax purposes (sort of like the British tax exiles of the 70's)
    yup. terry gilliam renounced his US citizenship for political reasons and became a UK citizen.
    he's also limited in the amount of days per year he can spend in the US.

    I'd really like someone to explain to me how reading someone his or her Miranda rights is a threat to this country. This is ridiculous.

    I don't think Lieberman and the others care all that much about the Miranda rights. They are just using that to make Democrats look weak on terrorism.

    Obama seems onboard with Liebermans idea. Big surprise there.

    No, he is not. There's a huge difference between Holder's suggestion that Miranda could be delayed in cases of terrorist suspects and stripping terrorist suspects of citizenship.
