IRS (Immoral Reprehensible Scourge), Do You Trust Them? I DON”T!
How far has our elected officials wondered from our Founding Fathers, about as far as humanly possible. Our great nation was founded because of taxation without representation and today not only is this present but the discrimination of its implementation shines brightly.
White House Senior Adviser Dan Pfeiffer told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that the legality surrounding the targeting of conservative groups by the Internal Revenue Service is “irrelevant,” but called the behavior “outrageous and inexcusable.” “I can’t speak to the law here. The law is irrelevant.”
First this is code for “Darn we got caught so spin it, hopefully it will go away”. If the white house was truly “outraged” they would first fire Dan Pfeiffer for saying it legalities are irrelevant because what was done is illegal and is relevant to all who love this country. He then said “I can’t speak to the law here. The law is irrelevant.” Isn’t the law here to protect the people from illegal actions; so how can it be irrelevant? Who put this person in this position and why hasn’t he been fired? The truth is because this is how this administration and many of our elected officials from both sides operate; the law doesn’t apply to them. Sheila Jackson Lee was stating rules that didn’t exist and was called on it when she was trying to derail Darrel Issa’s questioning of and Eric Holder. The question to ask is “Why would she defend the indefensible immoral and illegal IRS acts?”
IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman faced scrutiny, after having told a House committee in March 2012 there was "absolutely no targeting" by the IRS of conservative organizations. Lois Lerner directed IRS agents to target tea party and other conservative groups for additional scrutiny when they applied for tax-exempt status; it took liberal groups 3 months on average to the 18 month for conservative groups (if they received it at all) to receive tax exempt status. When Mr. Shulman stepped down they put Ms. Lerner in charge of the IRS; does this sound like trying to fix the problem? She and these same people would also be the ones with complete access to your medical records under Obama Care; would you trust her? They finally removed her but only after a giant uproar.
"The IRS abandoned good judgment and lost the public's trust," said Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., chairman of the Senate Finance Committee but it was his party doing it, at lease this time. In fact, the I.R.S. review requested by Senator Max Baucus, the Montana Democrat who leads the Finance Committee, into the political activities of tax-exempt groups but it wasn’t only him. Last year, a group of seven more Senate Democrats which urged the IRS to investigate these conservative parties sent another letter to the IRS demanding them investigate these outside political organizations. All most all of them sent tweets and messages that they were outraged this could happen in America, and it was them doing it; they should resign immediately. The letter was signed by Senators Charles E. Schumer, Michael Bennet, Sheldon Whitehouse, Jeff Merkley, Tom Udall, Jeanne Shaheen and Al Franken.In all there were some 120 Senate and House elected Democrats directing the IRS to investigate conservative groups. Do you see something wrong with this; I do.
Such a review threatens to "chill the legitimate exercise of First Amendment rights," wrote two Republican senators, Orrin G. Hatch of Utah and Jon Kyl of Arizona, in a letter sent to the I.R.S. on Wednesday; Democrats dismissed the Republicans' complaints as groundless. I wonder what they think now, we were wrong or we got caught? If you are voters in their district and reelect them, you are the biggest anti-American fools in the US today. I don’t care if you are a Democrat or Republican; if you’re an elected official from any party and do this you should loose your job along with everyone in the IRS chain of leadership. This did happen once before under Richard Nixon and all elected officials resigned who were involved; I wonder if these Senators will do the same honorable action (don’t hold your breath)?
We need to erase the IRS regulations and start over with everything written in laymen’s terms instead of 30,000 pages of lawyer language. If you listen to the experts you can see why. “It’s a game. We [tax lawyers] teach the rich how to play it so they can stay rich — and the IRS keeps changing the rules so we can keep getting rich teaching them.” — Attorney and best-selling author John Grisham, as noted in The New York Times in 1995. We need to have a Flat Tax first because John Grisham is right with only the lawyers and rich winning. If you read “Taxes”, it will show where we need to head.
Every one of the groups was being sniped for political reasons even though they had done nothing wrong. When you have any political party orchestrating and administering this type of illegal and immoral acts against the US Constitution, it is only a matter of time before they start attacking your US Constitutional rights no matter which party or political ideology you believe, just ask the North East Fishing Industry who are now on the verge of loosing their way of life. If we do not start voting for the officials who will protect the US Constitution and everybody’s freedoms, we as a nation will soon have no freedoms.
