For the rest of your life if you want. There are no restrictions. You still have to file taxes yearly though.

There is no difference in how long a foreigner, a Green Card holder, or a U.S. citizen can stay out of the U.S. of A.
I'm sure of it.

There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.

Not quite true, if they want to reenter the US and maintain status.

Smilealways asked about a naturalized US citizen, not a green or visa card holder. If at retirement age and getting SS, SS will send your check to practically any country of the world, except a small handful like North Korea for one. Least they realize that is the only way you can live on that tiny check. But the point is permanently leaving the USA.

That would be the answer to a question nobody asked. I just answered the question that was asked.

Which question would that be? You brought up the LPR's and others when the OP's question didn't.

A very true statement as far as staying out of the USA, just coming back if you want to makes a huge difference as to your immigration status.
