Paul's call: end the IRS (Mod sez: No taxes of any kind! No war! Whoopee!)
Union Leader ^ | 9/30/07 | Garry Rayno

Manchester – Calls to abolish the Internal Revenue Service and repeal the Constitutional amendment that established the federal income tax drew loud applause yesterday for Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul.

The Texas Congressman drew an eclectic mix of more than 500 supporters -- young and old, Libertarians and anti-war Democrats, independents and conservative Republicans -- who cheered his message of limited government, low taxes, free markets, bringing the troops home from Iraq, and returning to a monetary policy based on the gold standard.

Paul said the gathering at Veterans Park wasn't about him, but about his message -- which, he said, has been resonating with more and more people.

"Something very significant is happening in this country today. The paradigm is shifting away from government controlling our lives by force," he said. "People are sick and tired of what's happening and want to control (their) own lives."

He said people should be able to keep 100 percent of the fruits of their labor. Income tax is an example of the government controlling people, he said, as are the draft, prohibition on drugs, seat belt laws and other regulations.

Paul said current monetary policy amounts to a "secret sinister tax" that takes wealth from the middle class and poor, and redistributes money to Wall Street and the wealthy. The crowd broke into applause when he said the federal reserve system should be abolished.

Earlier in the day, Paul told three New Hampshire reporters he hoped to turn the enthusiasm his campaign has generated -- through the Internet, in "meet-ups" and through campaign donations -- into votes.

The physician-turned-politician said he expects to spend more and more time in New Hampshire. "The slogan on your license plate would indicate this should be fertile ground for us here," he said, alluding to the state's "Live Free or Die" motto.

Paul said he is running on the same policies President Bush advocated when he ran in 2000, which, he added, are the same ones Republicans have run on for years: a balanced budget, limited government, personal freedom and no nation building.

"Most Republicans -- the leadership in Washington -- don't believe in their own platform; that's why they are losing," Paul said.

Rather than try to spread democracy around the world, he said, politicians ought to focus on some of the shortcomings in this country.

"You don't get a fair shake unless you join the establishment," he said.

Paul, who ran for President in 1988 as the Libertarian Party's nominee, said it's more practical to run as a Republican, noting he spent half of his money in 1988 just trying to get on the ballot in all 50 states.

The door-to-door canvassing that followed the rally -- dubbed the Paul Family Walk -- included about 30 family members who led groups of campaigners in the Queen City, Concord and Nashua. Paul himself visited New England College, Dartmouth College and the Dartmouth Medical School after the rally.

Liz Viering and her husband Peter, from Stonington, Conn., said Paul's opposition to the war in Iraq is the major reason they are supporting him. "Money spent on wars of choice takes money away from other programs," she said.

Miles LaPlant, a 21-year old college student from Attleboro, Mass., said Paul is the first candidate who has captured his attention. LaPlant said he likes Paul's stances regarding the Constitution and the country's founding principles.

Jason Kantz, his wife, Angela, and their two children came up from Cambridge, Mass., for the rally. Kantz said Paul "is the only candidate that gives logical answers and means what he says."

He said Paul's stand on the war in Iraq is also an important issue for him. "We need to reduce our involvement around the world and the amount of money we are spending," Kantz said.

Long-time Libertarian Party member Dennis Corrigan of Boxford, Mass., said he supported Paul when the Congressman ran for President as the Libertarian nominee. He said he has been a Libertarian for 40 years and headed the party in Canada at one time.

Corrigan and a friend were soliticiting signatures for a Massachusetts ballot initiative outlawing the income tax. Corrigan said his friend moved to New Hampshire as part of the Free State Project, adding that he plans to move to the state, as well.

Thomas Clark, Minister of the Somersworth Tri-City Convenant Church, gave the invocation for the rally. Before the rally, he said he supports Paul because of his pro-life stance. "The pro-life issue is a major issue for me," Clark said.

Paul concluded the rally by encouraging his supporters to keep the faith, saying most mass movements have been driven by only 2 or 3 percent of the population.

"You are part of that 3 percent today," he said.

A word from Jim Robinson to the moonbats:

"It is funny and sad to see FR become “Defend Big Guv And Like It Republic.” Something is in the water along the lines of the following formula: “Big Gov execesses are necessary in times of war; we will always be at war with “terror”; ergo, Big Guv will always be necessary so hug it and put an “R” after it.”

To all antiwar moonbats, Paulistas included:

Hey, if you don't like FR and or our support the war policies leave. Go find a website that supports your unfortunate, short-sighted and misguided antiwar efforts. It's really that simple.

In case you antiwar Paulistas haven't noticed, Free Republic supports the war effort 100%. Many of our chapters protest against the antiwar moonbats either weekly, monthly or whenever the opportunity arises. The DC Chapter has been protesting against the antiwar moonbats EVERY Friday night at Walter Reed for three years.

Free Republic has co-sponsored several cross country caravans and hundreds of rallies in cities all across the country and in DC against the antiwar moonbats and in support of our Commander-in-chief, our troops, the war effort and our Gold Star and Blue Star families, many of whom are FReepers.

When you are supporting antiwar moonbats you are working against Free Republic's mission, hurting our efforts, hurting our families who have lost loved ones or have loved ones involved in the fighting, hurting our troops, damaging their morale, working against our efforts to defeat the enemy, and, in fact, giving aid and comfort to the enemy.

Antiwar moonbats are the domestic enemy. Antiwar moonbats willingly give aid and comfort to the enemy during wartime. In my book, that's tantamount to treason. Ron Paul is an antiwar moonbat. You figure it out. If antiwar moonbats are the enemy and Ron Paul is an aid and comfort supplying antiwar moonbat, then Ron Paul IS the enemy!

If you Paulistas are looking for support on FR for an antiwar moonbat who is giving aid and comfort to our enemies, you're nuts! Free Republic will NEVER support antiwar moonbats!

As far as our official policy on Ron Paul is concerned, it's the same policy we have for his antiwar moonbat allies the traitors Harry Reid, Chuckie Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Jack Murtha, Cindy Sheehan, Barbara Streisand, Jane Fonda, CodePink, International Answer, et al and their flaming antiwar spam monkeys. Ron Paul and his flaming antiwar spam monkeys can Kiss my Ass!!

Where the hell did you guys ever get the idea that enemy supporting antiwar moonbats would be welcome on FR?

That plain enough for you or do I need to spell it out?

Tell me Ron Paul, do you enjoy having a military to defend you? That costs money. Do you enjoy sending out letters and having them get to were you want them to go? That costs money. Do you want police to patrol your street, firemen to put out those fires, sanitation inspectors to make sure that Sushi restaraunt you love is up to code, and Air Marshals to make sure planes are safe? Well then, pony up some taxes, cause things don't come free.

That just doesn't sound conservative; the speaker sounds like a big-government fan who can't bring herself to support Dennis Kuicinch.

Paul's call: end the IRS

Congressman Paul is conspicuously light on providing the details of how he would then fund the legitimate functions of government.

Demagoguing the IRS and the current stupid system might be fun, but is not exactly helpful if you don't have a replacement that is in line with constitutional principles and the realities of a modern economy and nation.

Why would he need a military to defend him? He feels as long as we appease our enemies enough they will never attack us. Then if they do attack us all he will want to do is surrender anyway. What does he need a military for?

And yet mysteriously we had a military before the income tax. How did they do that?!?

Do you enjoy sending out letters and having them get to were you want them to go? That costs money.

Wow, you know we even had a postal service before the income tax too don't you? And yet today we have private industry who is able to surpass the government postal entity in quality of service and speed of service.

Do you want police to patrol your street, firemen to put out those fires, sanitation inspectors to make sure that Sushi restaraunt you love is up to code, and Air Marshals to make sure planes are safe?

Police and fire are local entities (and even those are being replaced in areas by private companies doing the job for a service charge). Sanitation inspectors? Again, a local service and not sure regulation has worked in more than a few instances anyway.

Air Marshals?!? LOL, oh yes because we can't have anyone but a gubmint worker to carry while on a plane. Dr. Paul has advocated pilots to be armed, so again yet another private solution.

OK. NICE slogans.

HOW does Paul plan to do any of this. What replaces the IRS? Or do you all assume we can simply put a “closed” sign on the whole US Govt?.

OH, that right! In your angst to hate everything and everybody, you Paulbots forgot all the things you WANT the Govt to do. Things like Border Security. the Military. The FBI etc.

It not 1776. You Paulbots got to finally grow up and deal with the world AS IT IS, not as you delude yourself into thinking it can be.

Politically the IRS is an easy target, but the true culprit is the 16th amendment to the Constitution. Aside from allowing Congress to create the IRS and the truly indecipherable tax code it has done enormous damage to the founding principles of the country.

Those, like John McCain, who yearn for campaign finance control don’t reveal that it is the power given to congress through the 16th amendment that causes people to attempt to influence lawmakers with financial contributions. It’s not the money that corrupts it’s that power that people are trying to mitigate that corrupts. It also allows for the redistribution of income thereby segregating the population into payers and slackers. The class envy that ensues is corrosive.

The indecipherable tax code loosens citizens attachment to the country’s law. This disrespect for the law is the one place that the political institutions of the country are in most peril. President Lincoln pointed this out in his Lyceum Speech.

Although there is much to disagree with in the opinion of Congressman Paul, he is generally correct on this topic.

Oh wow! YOU cannot answer a single question about Paul. Instead you simply put your hands over your ears and scream “no no no no” at every single question presented you!

Instead of answering every question about Paul with a absurd question back, actually answer the questions posed to you.

YOU people want us to support Paul. OK, simple question for any of you to answer. HOW is Paul going to do any of this?

See NO one is going to join you Paulbots when YOUR ONLY response to anyone who questions your god’s dogma is to spew bile at the questioner.

So answer this.

Simple challenge to you Paulites. With NO slogans. NO demagoguery. NO sliming everyone else who doesn’t share your faith. Tell me HOW Paul would do anything. Here is his “Issues page”. NOT a word about what or how he would do anything. Just a bunch of slogans strung together basically screaming bile at everyone and everything.

http://www.ronpaul2008.com/issues/

So, you Paulites want civility? Then explain to us WHAT and HOW a Paul Administration would do. Do that with OUT sliming any one. No name calling, no hysteric hyper emotive rhetoric. None of the usual Paulite personal attacks in place of reason argument. No cut and pasting of sound bite statements from Paul speeches. NO statements of what YOU think Paul means. REAL plans with documented links so we can read them for ourselves.

Look, this guys is calling for an end to the Federal Reserve the Department of Education and he's an anti-income tax, anti-foreign intervention commie.

He's against the North American Free Trade Agreement pro border security.

A great-grandfather who delivered more than 4,000 babies as a doctor in Texas, He voted against the Patriot Act he wants smaller government. This idiot even refused to accept government insurance such as Medicaid

As a lawmaker, he's chosen not to participate in the congressional pension program. Wow!

He says were on the verge of a bankruptcy, the dollar is crashing, the foreign policy's in shambles and the people's personal liberties are under attack, when we all know everything is wonderful under our current leadership.

He's living in the past, always talking about the principles of our founding fathers, cutting out government waste trim taxes bla bla bla...

He wants to gut government!

And he is pro-2nd Amendment?

LOL!

What a wacko!

LOL, gotta love the village idiot. The issues have been explained to you several times. Matter of fact it, many of the issues were discussed in detail on a very thread you were on with someone that amazingly doesn't even support Rep. Paul's positions. And yet you posted this same exact thing. Admit it, you've got it copied on a word document so you can just paste it in place don't you.

So yes sonny, it has been explained. But keep C+Ping the same tired response will you? And go back to your crowd so you can crow 'he didn't answer, he didn't answer' even though I, and others, have on other threads.

Then explain to us WHAT and HOW a Paul Administration would do

I've got one for you. How about you explain how your candidate (whoever the hell that may be) is going to do everything he plans to do.

Interesting that every response by ‘conservatives’ opposed to Paul here is either disagreeing that disbanding the IRS is a good idea (yep, they’re ‘conservatives’ all right) or unable put forth anything but a diatribe about Paul and his followers as ‘Paulbots’ or some other insulting comment.

Not that there’s anything wrong with being all for the IRS, or unable to form a cogent argument. However, folks that fall into those categories are generally allied with the jackass party.

I’m sure it’s just a coincidence.

I’ve thrown around this idea of mine once in a while for the last 5 or 6 years.

My idea is that the military should fund itself(or at least partly). They would do this by obtaining a lease or temporary rights to natural resources in places they are deployed. Obviously there would need to be some kind of oversight. We can’t have the military deploying itself to all the resource rich places in the world just to cash in. But it seems to me when America is doing police type actions all over the place, someone else should be helping to pay for that. We could do something like this: Allow the military to seek out it’s own funding to equal the value of the fuel and ordnance consumed, but no more. And they would not be allowed to take resources from region A to compensate for expenditures in region B.

There’s a lot that would need to be worked out, but I don’t see why the military shouldn’t be finding some of it’s own funding in some way.

Eliminate the federal income tax? Term limits?

How would these corrupt hacks stay in power? How would all these hacks from both parties make a killer living off the stupid citizens that continue to elect the wealthy elites over and over. No term limits.

Most of these people have made a great living for many years consuming our tax dollars. What would they do? How would they make a living? Who would pay for their multi-million dollar homes and limos?

I think we need more taxes to help pay for their retirement pensions and their life styles. We need more government and more control.

How about this Ron Paul supporter?

Liz Viering and her husband Peter, from Stonington, Conn., said Paul's opposition to the war in Iraq is the major reason they are supporting him. "Money spent on wars of choice takes money away from other programs," she said.

Yep. Anti-war. So government money can be spent on other programs. Yep, a committed conservative here! BWAHAHAHAHA!

I love the way the Mods change these Paul thread titles to be more in line with reality.

Oh, the mods. They’re nothing but prawns of Wall Street bankers.

I have no idea what the rules are here on FR anymore. No more Ron Paul pings, but can I say something nice about an elected public serpent like Ron Paul who wants to shrink Gubmint to within an inch of it’s life?

Please advise. I’m waiting for my marching orders.

Other than the security (national defence measures you cited): the market can take care of sanitation on it’s own; it doesn’t need government to fix that for us!
