Lerner Emails: Conservative 'Crazies' and 'A--holes' will 'Take Down' America
townhall.com ^

Posted on 07/30/2014 6:46:47 PM PDT by RoosterRedux

That screen grab comes from an email exchange between retired IRS official Lois Lerner and a colleague just after the 2012 election. Ms. Lerner describes overhearing some women discussing the state of the nation in dire terms, prompting her correspondent to blast "whacko" and "scary" right-wing radio shows. Lerner posits that America may be "through" if "that many a--holes" exist, later adding that the US shouldn't worry about foreign terrorists because "our own crazies" will "take us down."

So in other words, statists view the fear of an onerous, intrusive government as a good reason to impose onerous, intrusive government.

Gotta understand. Lerner and her progressive ilk see pure top down government as the essence of what America is. Any threat of the people having power over that pure governance is seen as a dire threat to their version of America.

Yes, I pray we can bring “their” America down.

She's a clever one, she is.

Notice how he capitalizes the first "r" in "terrorists" so it reads "teRrorists".

Not bad, Lois, but maybe next time put the "R" in parentheses so it reads "te(R)rorists".

The IRS inherently politicized, and very expensive to run. Let’s get rid of it so the government could switch to a value added tax system (no more Jurassic bureaucracy). The savings would be tremendous..

And who knows? Maybe Lois Lerner could even find a real job or get a boy friend.

Thanks for that, Virgil. Simple and clear. Most of us in the private sector would. The government shouldn't be an exception.

This isn’t the first time she wrote statements like this on her government owned blackberry, she was very comfortable doing it because she had done it so many times in the past and no one said a word.
This kind of hate thinking has a long history in the democrat party and is reflected in who they elected as their leader, who agrees with Lois

This is prime evidence that if the bureaucracy is not reigned in, it doesn't matter if the one you elect is conservative, or not. It is everywhere in the Federal Government.

> “Let’s get rid of it so the government could switch to a ***value added tax*** system...”

No! No, a value added tax is a horrible tax system.

The best most brilliant tax system that is not a value added tax and would get rid of all the income tax IRS problems is the ‘Fair Tax’ which is commonly expressed in a brand form as ‘FairTax’.
