    and I know this because I'm doing it.

    While you cannot work in the US ever again, you are allowed to visit.  You can attend your parent's funerals.  It is only if you are found to have renunciated for tax evasion that you can have the harsher penalty put on you.  And then NEVER mean NEVER. But that is not the norm.

    You cannot renunciate without being a citizen (or permanent resident?) of another country.  You cannot renunciate yourself into statelessness.
