“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
This is the purpose of the Constitution, not the Federal government.

- Your net worth is $2 million or more on the date of your expatriation
- You failed to certify that you have complied with all of your federal tax obligations for the past five years preceding the expatriation
