Gordon Bishop On The Issues
Here's a question for you.
"Would you consider taking a job with a government agency that:
1. Unnecessarily strikes fear into the hearts of tens of millions of your fellow citizens, causing such anguish and despair that some are driven to suicide each year.
2. Requires citizens to know 10 million words of rules and regulations because the failure to do so may result in draconian fines and even jail, while at the same time no one in the agency has a full understand of all the rules and regulations it requires others to know.
3. Routinely ignores the constitutional protections against self-incrimination and the right to the presumption of innocence.
4. Seizes the assets of citizens without obtaining court judgments.
5. Penalizes marriage.
6. Discriminates against many of the nation's most productive citizens.
7. Destroys incentives to work, save and invest, and undermines job creation.
Routinely protects agency personnel who have engaged in citizen intimidation, misrepresentation, or worse?
No, I am not referring to the Nazi SS or the Soviet KGB, but the IRS, which is guilty of all of the above and more.
What the federal government will never tell the working taxpayer is that the IRS, in 1913, suddenly became the 16th Amendment in the Constitution, but was NEVER ratified by the states.
There are dozens of lawsuits pending before the U.S. Supreme Court, demanding that proof of the IRS's operation be submitted to the highest court in the land.
It'll never happen because crooked politicians and federal bureaucrats cannot submit the proof that the IRS was "legally" ratified by the states in 1913.
The President of the United States, The Treasury Secretary and the IRS Commissioner cannot submit proof to the Supreme Court because there is no proof -- and never will be.
It will take a second American Revolution to destroy the federal IRS.
Anybody you know will stand up to the IRS or the President or the IRS Commissioner?
Organizations like the Freedom Foundation will be fight the battle because there are thousands of citizens willing to put their names on a petition to fight the federal crooks responsible for this Mafia-like rape of the taxpayers.
Unlike the local property and sales taxes, the federal income tax and the IRS have perverted the law, which is supposed to ensure equal justice, into an instrument of plunger through legislation (as contrasted with constitutional law) and regulation.
The French political and economic philosopher Frederick Bastait correctly said, "No society can exist unless the laws are respected to a certain degree, but the safest way to make them respected is to make them respectable."
When law and morality are in contradiction to each other, the citizen finds himself in the cruel alternative of either losing his moral sense, or of losing his respect for the law."
America's tax law could be made fair, certain and efficient. The tragedy is that too many at the IRS and in Congress have lost their moral sense, causing their fellow citizens to lose respect for the law, according to Richard W. Rahn, a senior fellow at the Cato Institute who wrote this article, which was published in The Washington Times on April 12, three days before the federal tax deadline.
There are millions of working people who do not pay IRS taxes. Many of them are members of non-profit foundations suing the IRS for proof of its "legal" existence.
They'll never find such proof, folks, because the federal government no longer represents the law-abiding citizens of our society.
The federal government represents an illegal tax scheme that continues to expand the size and financial burden (IRS) on the working class.
The IRS is "Government Against the People" -- not FOR the People."
I'd like to see the illegitimate president, Barack Hussein Obama, lead the charge against the crooked federal government.
Obama will never launch such a mission because he is a Liberal-Socialist-Marxist-Communist who is committed to turning America into an Islamic Nation State that will make "Redistribution of Wealth" the Law of the Land.
We are no longer an independent Constitutional Republic.
We are a Communist dictatorship under the rule of a crazed African Arab whose mother was a white American from Kansas (Ann Durnam).
If the election of Obama were made into a motion picture documentary, nobody would believe what happened to this country.
America is no longer my country.
At 72, I'm just living here with my 8-member family until the Mighty One calls for me.
