Itís.The.Law
American Spectator ^ | 5.20.13 | ROSS KAMINSKY

Posted on 05/20/2013 10:39:08 AM PDT by neverdem

The White House may invoke it in its peculiar way, but its occupants only show contempt for the rule of law.

Last Thursday, Congressman Darrell Issa (R-CA) started a Twitter prairie fire with his call for people to describe #ObamacareInThreeWords. (My contribution was “Sorry, Doctor retired.”)

Other gems included “Max Baucus regrets,” “A massive failure,” “Rammed down throats” and the extremely uncomfortable proof of Godwin’s Law, “Arbeit. Macht. Frei.”

Liberal participation brought “Win for kids,” “Republicans suck balls,” “Republicans hate me”...

--snip--

House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) hit the nail on the head in his opening statement at the committee’s Friday morning hearing on the IRS scandal: “Trimming a few branches will not solve the problem when the roots of the tree have gone rotten. And, that is exactly what has happened with our entire tax system — it is rotten at the core, and it must be ripped out so we can start fresh. Only then will the American people get a tax system that treats them fairly and honestly, as they deserve.”

We have laws which, like Obamacare, were created by special interests and obedient or gullible members of Congress, some well-meaning and some simply using the power of government to reward their friends or increase their own power. Like Obamacare, much of what’s in the tax code is unknown to the vast majority of us, even to those politicians who voted for it.

It is time — past time — for a full frontal assault on big government, on the tax code, on Obamacare, on the power of the IRS, EPA, FCC, NLRB, and the multitudinous other alphabet soup of services, agencies, commissions, and boards that taxpayers have the privilege of funding so that they can bleed us of our wealth and freedom...

Government has decided that these organizations perform functions that are so worthy that they deserve to escape the corporate taxes.

That’s a lot of tax dollars. Are they all more deserving than other types of business? The non profit sector has grown pretty large.

What to do?

What to do?

Repeal the 16th Amendment and the related enabling laws for starters.

I posted it earlier, I think on inaugural day 2009, but could not find it with Google Search. But yes, we new then what we were facing.

The Income Tax is a truly evil thing. It kinda makes slaves of people who work. I’d like to see it repealed for sure.

The law, what a joke. If the Executive and the Attorney General are not going to enforce the law, leading to armies of bureaucrats safe to flaut the law, leading to populations of Americans receiving benefits and free to ignore the law, one would be a FOOL to be the only one actually obeying the law.

It’s the law, but so is the law in South Carolina that states

“we’re not going to implement it in SC, and neither are you”

And as for their lawlessness,

we now have a thugocracy, that has no authority other than their ability to use force to make you obey.

That’s where we must go for protection from tyranny - our state governments.

Pretty sure the State of Texas supports the Second Amendment as do our Sheriffs and the Texas Rangers... local Cops may be a mixed bag (at first)

I'm good on relying on myself for protection. Not to say that I can't be killed, but I can't be coerced. And they can only kill me once.

Yeah me too ... but they will be outnumbered by a factor of a hundred ... in your case I’m thinking a factor of a couple thousand ... (I’m still working on my Peach Cobbler Recipe)
