Using the full force of the feral government for political purposes is not a crime when Democrats do it.

This should be a criminal and civil RICO prosecution.

Why do these people avoid using the phrase ‘Under color of Authority” like the black plague? Look it up folks. Then demand prosecution/

Nupe. It's just peachy. They had to do it after all; if they hadn't, why... Obama might not have been re-elected! Give me a break!

Of course if a Republican does such a thing, or even so much as thinks about doing such a thing, it's a crime on the same order as Nero fiddling while Rome burned. It's shredding the constitution. It's destroying the concept of "a nation of laws, not of men."

if this happens, they must give the prosecutor a tight timeline and not allow it to go on forever. We need action a quickly as can be reasonably expected. Attorneys seem to always work in slow motion.

Not Boehner or McConnell, Jindal & Walker, yes.

States need to step out of their comfort zones. Send in state prosecutors to investigate and arrest these federal fascists. We’re not going to defeat the federal fascists until states, counties and local governments step in to challenge these gestapo slugs. If states are so afraid of the 70 IQ fat federal slobs, hire a retired Marine or Army Ranger general to train a battalion-size strike force.

Today must be a day when the Fed dumped a ton of money on the banks and they slammed it into the market....

Too bad Muslims don’t hate the IRS as much as real Americans.

Maybe they need maps to the IRS buildings. What could go wrong they are the ROP after all.

Using the IRS to go after political enemies is criminal - and impeachable... We need to know what Obama knew - and when he knew it...

What if the Red-state governors all simultaneously sent their state's National Guard. Would the Federal Marshals, DC Police, Park Police and Secret Service be willing to take their firing positions?

The federal fascists don’t understand fields of fire, envelopment or crossfire from the flanks. So the answer to your question about the fat federal slobs taking up firing positions is, No.

“So then what’s the holdup?”

The holdup, Mr. FReeper, is that conservatives don’t understand organization, strategy or command structure.

Bets wishes to your family, rocklobster.
