Fresh from the introduction of HR1207, a bill to audit the Federal Reserve, Reps. Bachmann and Paul arrived at Northrop to paint a portrait of financial dystopia where 100 percent of your paycheck is being spoken for. Bachmann predicts this will happen some time around 2050. Her voice rising to a high-pitched chant, she ticked off the list of financial aggressors: Income tax, property tax, gas tax, sales taxeverytime-you-turn-around tax! Meanwhile, over at the United Nations (the very mention of which drew a chorus of boos), theyll likely work with China and Japan to insist on replacing the American dollar with the international one-world currency.

During the Q&A session, Paul explains that, though an audit is far more modest than his goalEnd the Fed is the title of his new bookonce everyone sees how dirty the Fed is, the next thing that happens is the Federal Reserve is over.

At least our crazies won’t get behind schemes to take you money under guise of “The government is always right”.
I like how they quoted this:

Ok, so the weenies at the “daily beast” think taxes are a good thing. I guess personal freedom of spending your own income is a sin in their twisted eyes?
