You have stated the facts, and I haven't refuted what you have said. I would never do that. For better or for worse this rabbit whole is quite deep.
And for the people that do get to know this information, and plan to act on it ought to truly arm themselves with knowledge, because your life is changed forever.
I'am truly sorry about your friends. I myself have a good number of friends as well, and know of many others, that have tried and failed to accomplish the same.
Some with far worse consequences and some with a lot less.
This is not about leaving the American soil. It is about understanding how the system works, acknowledging the rules of the game that we are all playing.
I'm moving deeper down the rabbit whole, and with everyday i feel better with myself by just knowing. Your friends are brave to act on what they have learned, unfortunately their timing was not right. In order to do this correctly, you do have to arm your self with information, and I do mean arm yourself! Since there is a lot of hogwash noise placed about to lead you astray.
It is very similar to trading. You have to know when to sell and when to buy and when to just sit and wait.
These people were not brave. They were gullible. You are gullible.
You are claiming here that it is possible to opt out of the system. Still, you have not opted out yourself. You do not know anyone that has successfully opted out.
I know of one person that has opted out of the US system. He gave up his US passport and became a Thai National.
There is nothing you can do whilst on US soil. Nothing at all.
Read all the crackpot websites you like. You are spreading disinformation here. You have not managed to achieve what you say is possible yourself.
You are obviously excited about this - but it's a dead end. It is a total waste of your time and a danger to those who believe you are some sort of expert in these matters when all you are doing is regurgitating nonsense from the internet.
