Yeah. I guess we can agree to call it a matter of taste. I loved NYC when I was younger. Lived many years there. Spent a year in Alexandria (Virginia) right next to Washington D.C. But as I said, I am a trader, not a patriot, and I go where I want to, not where I'm sent to. Time changes tastes, just like it changes everything. Now I prefer Europe. I loved beer a few years ago, now I prefer red wine. US capital gain taxes are amongst the shittiest in the whole world. Together with the vicious tendency of the US government to always try to put its big ugly nose into your accounts. Don't forget that it's YOUR money, not the government's, whatever they may say. Think twice before moving there. I'm sure the taxes in Brazil are much more trader-friendly. I'd say rationality will keep you in Brazil, unless you're a fanatical patriot and you're totally in deep, mad love with the US soil and "culture". In that case, I think we can forget about taxes or any rational argument whatsoever. You have madly fallen in love with a country, poor you, what can I say, follow your heart. Kiss its flag. March in rank to the sound of its national music. Speaking for myself I don't fall in love with countries. Only certain women have that irrational effect on me. Enough said. Happy trails, Neo.
