Depardieu: Double-whammy, super duper sized Going Galt

La liberté de l'individu est le patriotisme ultime

From Eric Dondero:

The famous French actor Gerard Depardieu makes a dramatic departure from Socialist-run France.

From the London Telegraph,
in a letter published in the Journal du Dimanche...

"I am handing over to you my passport and social security, which I have never used," he said. "We no longer have the same homeland, I am a true European, a citizen of the world, as my father always taught me to believe."

He concludes: "Despite my excesses, my appetite and love for life, I am a free being, Sir, and will remain polite."
Depardieu made the decision to depart France, sell his estate and move to a Belgian border town weeks after France's Socialist President Francois Hollande vowed to push forward with plans to institute a 75% income tax on millionaires.

Sigh! If only we had American actors with such balls of steel, willing to stand up to Obama's socialist state.
