Johnny Depp Flees France to Avoid High Taxes



Here’s something about Hollywood’s hypocrisy …
Johnny Depp – the famous and talented American actor who starred in several popular films: Pirates of the Caribbean, Sleepy Hollow, Scissorshand, and other filmsis not going to pay the high taxes that France imposes after being invited to become a permanent resident.
Yet, in 2007, Johnny Depp joined the ranks of celebrities that despise America, left the United States for France declaring he would not raise his children. He told the New York Post:

I’m not particularly optimistic about society. We’re in an age where everything has gone too far. It’s an ugly world. … I’m truly frightened of America in terms of raising my daughter here. I don’t believe that is an option at all.

This was after making a lot of money from the Pirates of the Caribbean, he bad-mouthed his country and went to France, a country that has riots where people set cars on fire and Muslims are overrunning the nation’s infrastructure.

Actor Johnny Depp has moved out of France and returned to America because he didn’t want to become a permanent French resident and pay income tax there. …Depp has now moved his family out of France after government officials asked him to become a permanent resident, as he feared he would end up paying tax in both countries. He tells Britain’s The Guardian newspaper, “…France wanted a piece of me. They wanted me to become a permanent resident. Permanent residency status – which changes everything. They just want… Dough. Money… ” Depp goes on to explain that if he spends more than 183 days a year in France he will have to pay income tax in both Europe and America, adding, “So you essentially work for free.”

Has the radical liberal finally awaken?
I hope so because I respect him as an actor and I certainly would like to see that he awakens as to who the real enemy is here in America. If Obama is elected, Depp may purchase an island somewhere to get away again.
It always amazed me (and hypocrisy sickened me) how Hollywood elites who are wealthy could stand by a political party that is against anyone (except themselves) who are wealthy with policies that favor income and wealth redistribution and insisting that the wealthy pay everyone else’s share.
