Abolish The IRS: Finally, Justification For The Flat Tax?

No IRSWith all the intimidation and abuse of power, it’s clear the IRS is out of control.

The very purpose of the IRS is to transfer wealth from one group to another while violating our liberties in the process, thus the only way Congress can protect our freedoms is to repeal the income tax and shutter the doors of the IRS once and for all.
Ron Paul (R-TX)

Maybe abolishing the Internal Revenue Service would be a good addition to that ongoing “fundamental transformation” of America!

    This quotation comes from the words of DANIEL WEBSTER and those of JOHN MARSHALL in the Supreme Court case, McCulloch v. Maryland.

    Webster, in arguing the case, said: “An unlimited power to tax involves, necessarily, a power to destroy,” 17 U.S. 327 (1819).

    In his decision, Chief Justice Marshall said: “That the power of taxing it
    [the bank] by the States may be exercised so as to destroy it, is too
    obvious to be denied” (p. 427), and “That the power to tax involves the
    power to destroy … [is] not to be denied” (p. 431).

    I read former Texas Congressman Dick Armey’s “Flat Tax”, back in the early nineties, I believe. It accelerated my maturation from liberal to conservative.

    A flat tax would be far superior to the corruptive quagmire we have now. It would reduce politicians’ ability to game the system, thus the manifest reluctance by politicos to embrace it.

    That goes exponentially more for the “Fair Tax”, which if practiced as put forth by former Georgia Congressman John Linder and Neal Boortz, in their, “The Fair Tax Book” would likely precipitate a transfer of power, from the Federal Government to the people, that would have the entire nefarious Obama cabal crying on the White House lawn.

    Whence cometh a progressive income tax and a Federal Reserve Bank? From the Communist manifesto: “… 2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax. ..5. Centralisation of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly.” http://www.marxists.org/archive/marx/works/1848/communist-manifesto/ch02.htm

    In all bureaucracies or government or elsewhere in humanity, “Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” The IRS has the power to seize assets without first seeking a judicial determination in violation of the 5th Amendment, “nor be deprived of of life, liberty or property without due process of law.” Barack’s Obamacare gives the IRS those same unconstitutional powers over your healthcare and your financing of it. The IRS is empowered by Congress. The House, under Speaker Boehner, can defund the IRS or limit its powers by not funding certain or all activities each year.

    That to which we acquiesce to the IRS is our own self-enslavement. The Federal Reserve Bank has power given by Congress to print or electronically distribute presently $80+billion dollars a month of our money to Bernanke’s cronies without authorization by Congress (There is no Congressional limit on the amount the Fed can print.). The power Congress gave to the Fed can be removed each year by Congress. Just say NO. The Fed issues our Fiat Money. (Fiat means: the government says these printed pieces of paper are money which is legal tender for all debts) Congress can each year remove the power to issue Fiat Money from the Fed.

    Fiat money is a joke. See WilliamBonzai7′s ridicule of fiat money, fiat paper gold; fiat paper milk, or your fiat paper house. http://www.zerohedge.com/contributed/2013-05-20/tickets-fiat-baby

    Trust in Barack; he’s issued a fiat that everything is wonderful, or act to end the absurdity..

    I agree. The only question is what will be taxed. Neither a progressive nor a regressive tax will engender positive progress or constrain progressive corruption. The people with limited means have a right to ask for relief, but their current demands are unequivocally harmful to them and to society. They are providing the cover necessary for fundamental corruption to prevail, which will continue to obfuscate and sponsor exceptional corruption.

    I’ve been harping aboout a flat tax for over 30+ years, it’s the most equitable. No deductions! Everybody pays in, from the poorest to the richest.

    If everybody has skin in the game, they will begin to realize just how onerous he taxman actually is!

    Of course, the Professional Boobs in Washington (sorry for repeating myself) will not be able to use the Income Tax as a weapon/tool, so it’s going to be a hard slog getting it passed if it ever even comes up in Congress…

    Think of all those Tax Attorneys that would be put out of work. Maybe they can get a real job asking “You want fries with that??”
