Thats not a bad idea
Plus you can start to receive opposition intel - and vote in their primaries
We should ALL do that
Let’s see...the IRS is the enforcement arm for Obama Care.
If you’re a senior and want medical care, you’d better be a registered democrat and never contribute money to a republican or a conservative group.
And the death panels would NEVER decide who get medical care based on party affiliation!
(hint: when you reach 65 REGISTER as a democrap)
If the Organization was listed as Muslim or Islam, no problem...
[[I’m suspicious whenever the MSM shows uncharacteristic honesty.]]
The ONLY reason they are being ‘honest’ about it is because they know that ‘lower level’ peopel will get the ax and America wil think the MSM was o nthe job the whoel time rooting otu corruption- The IRs is already settign hte stage for shiftign hte blame and deflecting it away fro mour dear leader
[[Where was the oversight? Who - exactly - was responsible? ]]
Better yet, where is lindsay graham, McCain DEMANDING an investigation?
you’d still be fine to donate to Goober Graham or Juan McStain.
might even get you an EITC check.
Who directed the IRS to do this? I’m sure the excuse will be that some “rogue” employees did this on their own.
[[There is a major political tug of war not too far down the road that this country is treading. My only prayer is that the good people of this country prevail and that those who would destroy us be vanquished.]]
not gonna happen, we will go the route of so many countries befoere us and simply cave in and surrender- We saw a MASSIVE surrender i nthis last election as peopel went to the polls with hteir greedy little hands stuck out saying “Big Gobmint- Gimme some money- gimme lots of freebies- stick it to the ‘rich guys’ and gimme theri money”- There was no way in the world dear leader shoudl have won another 4 years, but apaprently this country turned too self-centered top give a crap abotu anyone else- and so you iwll see us devolve into servitude under a tyranical govenrment that WILL take advantage of our apathy
So who’s going to jail?
No Fault Big Gubamint ‘Rules’
There is only one party with two pretend labels, anyway - rather than trying to repair the irreparably damaged Republican label, it's a lot easier for conservatives to use the MSM Pre-Approved Democrat label to win elections. The Communists have been doing it for decades - why can't we?
And the beauty of it is, the Left can't easily reverse course - they are all in with the Democrat label equalling Public Trust. Just watch them try to attack a black conservative Democrat in a primary against a typical white male Yellow Dog Boss Hogg lookalike. :)
And she never said that they were going to stop the practice they’re just sorry they got caught.
Our affirmative action president has proven to be Nixon with a suntan, but without the foreign policy bones.
No will get get fired over this, and no one will go to jail. Just a meaningless, worthless, token apology.
APOLOGY NOT accepted.
Henceforthy apply as “Party To Promote Obama” and then file a DBA (Doing Business As) for fundraising. I think that would work but check with an attorney or something.
What are the possibilities for the offended Tea Party and/or groups to sue the IRS in federal court for violation of First Amendment and federal statutory rights, given the obvious fact that the IRS engaged in deliberate retaliation for the groups' political views? ( Bivens action?)
