Ron Paul: Fix IRS by Shutting It ‘Once and For All’ | A No-Brainer If You Think About It

Irs used to target people who disagree with the president

One thing I admire about Ron Paul is that he’ll say out loud in front of hundreds of politicians or reporters what millions of people are thinking but no other politician will admit.

The IRS has always been used to abuse and subjugate people. Everyone who has ever had any dealings with them knows it. On a personal note, when my father was recovering from a broken back and unable to work the IRS hounded him mercilessly.

These are the people who will soon be in charge of your healtchare. Think about it. Why should this government agency exist? If it was gone it would be one less thing to worry about and we could concentrate on fixing other travesties like SWAT team invasions and police brutality.

Ron Paul: Fix IRS by Shutting It ‘Once and For All’

Former Rep. Ron Paul of Texas called the recent IRS fiasco troubling — but writes that the only way Congress can protect the freedoms of Americans from a long pattern of suspected IRS abuse is to “shutter the doors” of the agency “once and for all.”

The longtime GOP congressman writes that IRS agents in the 1930s were essentially “hit squads” against opponents of the New Deal, and that allegations of IRS abuse spanned the administrations of Presidents KennedyNixonClinton and George W. Bush.

 

“The bipartisan tradition of using the IRS as a tool to harass political opponents suggests that the problem is deeper than just a few ‘rogue’ IRS agents — or even corruption within one, two, three or many administrations,” Dr. Paul writes in his weekly column, “Texas Straight Talk. “Instead, the problem [lies] in the extraordinary power the tax system grants the IRS.”

The libertarian and tea party hero goes on to argue that the power of the IRS can only be countered with a complete overhaul to the country’s tax system.

“The federal government will get along just fine without its immoral claim on the fruits of our labor, particularly if the elimination of federal income taxes are accompanied by serious reduction in all areas of spending, starting with the military spending beloved by so many who claim to be opponents of high taxes and big government,” he writes. “While it is important for Congress to investigate the most recent scandal and ensure all involved are held accountable, we cannot pretend that the problem is a few bad actors. The very purpose of the IRS is to transfer wealth from one group to another while violating our liberties in the process, thus the only way Congress can protect our freedoms is to repeal the income tax and shutter the doors of the IRS once and for all.”

OUTGOING IRS CHIEF: TAXES VOLUNTARY (IF YOU DON’T MIND GOING TO PRISON)

irs healthcare

Among the completely ridiculous drivel spewed by outgoing IRS commissioner Steve Miller, he testified before the House Ways and Means Committee that Americas tax system is “voluntary”. This is only a minutia of the evidence showing how bizarrely out of touch the federal government has become.

He did say that if you don’t pay your taxes you will go to jail… So I suppose that means that it is completely voluntary for the people who want to be or are already in prison.

So these are the incompetent boobs that we are putting in charge of healthcare in this country? Super! They should do as good a job as they do with everything else. (Which means spying, discriminating, money laundering, taking all money out of some peoples bank accounts, taking people’s property often without justification, closing down businesses when it’s completely unnecessary… well, I could go on, but we’d be here a while).

OUTGOING IRS CHIEF: TAXES VOLUNTARY (IF YOU DON’T MIND GOING TO PRISON)

by WILLIAM BIGELOW 18 May 2013

On Friday, former acting IRS Commissioner Steve Miller, testifying before the House Ways and Means Committee, said that America’s tax system is “voluntary.”

During the hearing, Rep. Devin Nunes (D-CA) said in passing that the U.S. tax code is a “voluntary system.” Miller simply responded, “Agreed.”

This line has been used before by none other than Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. Interviewed by Jan Helfeld in 2008, this is how the conversation went:

Helfeld: If the government is in the business of forcefully taking money from some people in order to provide welfare benefits to others, how will the people whose money is being taken feel about the government?

Reid: Well, I don’t accept your phraseology. I don’t think we force people-

Helfeld: Taxation is not forceful?

Reid: Well, no ..

Helfeld: It’s voluntary?

Reid: Quite the contrary. Our system of government Is a voluntary tax system

Helfeld: If you don’t want to pay your taxes, you don’t have to?

Reid: Of course you have to pay your taxes

Helfeld: The government will force you to pay or they will fine you or imprison you.

SHOCK: IRS Caught Laundering Veterans Disability Checks…

the irs has always been a corrupt syping entity used to subjigate people... let's put them in charge of health care

The story below, written by Iraq war veteran Kevin E. Lake, describes a scenario in which the IRS took all of the money from his bank account and accused him of making about 150 times more than he actually did. They used that as an excuse to empty his bank account.

How convenient. I want to go around accusing people of something false that I have no evidence of and use it as an excuse to empty their bank account into my pockets. (p.s. I don’t really, but it does seem like an easy way to make some extra money.)

Let’s get this straight. If I did it, it would be theft and I would be jailed probably for years. When the IRS does it, it’s because they are God and you should bow and grovel before them unquestioningly… Sounds legit.

Here’s my question: What type of moron, imbecile, incompetent boob would put an organization like the IRS that has ALWAYS been corrupt, unjust and tyrannical in charge of a national healthcare plan?!?

Oh… Yeah. Now I remember. Anyway…

Is the national healthcare plan supposed to get as many citizens as possible to commit suicide and thereby decrease the cost of the national healthcare plan? Is that the actual plan? Because, it sort of seems like it…

SHOCK: IRS Caught Laundering Veterans Disability Checks…

May 18, 2013

(Kevin E. Lake) — Recently, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has come under attack for malicious treatment of certain U.S. citizens and groups by singling them out based upon their personal political preferences. At this time, it is still unclear where the direct orders came from to initiate such heinous activities, but what is crystal clear is that this type of activity is not new for the IRS.

The IRS has mastered the art of breaking their own laws, one case in particular; using banks to launder and then steal disabled veterans’ disability checks.

The Veterans Disability Act of 2010 is a Federal law which exempts VA disability from withholding of any sort. Actually, existing code USC, Title 38, §5301 already protected VA disability from withholding, but this provision was re-iterated and included in the newer legislation of 2010, because too many civil court judges were legislating from the bench and including veterans’ disability monies as earned income and granting it to ex-spouses (men and women) in divorce proceedings, at times, leaving disabled veterans without any safety net for self-care.

However, the IRS is still figuring out ways to get to a veteran’s disability money. How do I know? Recently, it happened to me.

A couple of months ago, when I logged into my online bank account to make sure that my VA disability check had been deposited (I am a 60% disabled veteran of the Iraq War) I saw red and a negative balance, beside which read the word “hold.”

I called my bank and was informed that the IRS had sent a letter demanding that the bank take all of the available funds out of my account on the first day of the month and then wire them to them. The bank gave me a telephone number at which to call the IRS. After being placed on hold for a very long time- long as in a biblical age- I finally spoke with an agent.

Long story short; they claim I made $157,000 in 2010 and that I owe them tons of money, and that until I pay it, a lien will remain on my personal bank account.

At the beginning of 2010, I was still in the hospital recovering from injuries I’d sustained while serving in Iraq. I was released early in the year, but still did not find employment until October, and even then, it was only part time. I can assure you, as I did the IRS, that I did not earn $157,000.00. Actually, I earned less than $10,000.00 in 2010.

the irs has always been a corrupt syping entity used to subjigate people... let's put them in charge of health careI kindly read the federal code mentioned above to the lady I spoke with at the IRS, reminding her that VA disability money is 100% exempt. She placed me on hold for another age (I could see a man coming- bearing water- over the horizon) and then she came back on the line and told me, “We do not take veterans’ disability money. We wait until the funds are deposited from the VA and then we take all of the funds from your bank account.

Um.

Isn’t this called laundering?

I find it ironic, now, that only weeks before the IRS put this hold on my bank account, I’d been asked to be a contributing writer for key Tea Party personality “Joe the Plumber.” I’d been writing freelance articles on veterans affairs for some time, publishing and distributing them mostly through Facebook, and I viewed the personal call Joe made to me as one of the greatest compliments I’d been paid in regard to those articles. I jumped at the opportunity to join his team and give my work, such as this piece, a wider audience. I can’t help but think that part of my decision to join Joe’s team may have played a part in being singled out by the IRS at this specific time and having my VA disability money taken from me in complete breach of federal law.

The good news is that through my persistence, and my refusal to accept their answer, that it is okay to launder VA disability money, I was able to get the IRS to refund all of the money they’d taken from my bank. I am working with the IRS to remedy their great misunderstanding of my earnings for 2010, and I am reaching out to all disabled veterans to let them know that if this is happening to them, they do have rights, and they need to stand up for them.

As many veterans know, our war does not stop once we make it home. Often, new battles begin, such as battles for the rights our government promised they’d provide for us upon our return from war that they often turn around and attempt to take away.

Currently in America, twenty two veterans a day are committing suicide. One of the biggest contributors to the suicide epidemic is our veterans’ inability to find suitable work after serving and the inability to take care of themselves and their families financially. This is why VA disability is sacred- except in the eyes of the IRS. Too many disabled veterans in the U.S. are just a disability check away from being on the street and joining the already nearly 70,000 homeless veterans in America.

If you are a veteran receiving disability from the VA, and you are having it garnished, withheld, or having a lien placed upon it for any reason, please contact the entity who is withholding, garnishing, or who has placed the lien, and reference the federal code stated earlier in this article. You stood up for the rights of all people of a great nation in combat, but unfortunately, you must continue to stand up for yourselves to ensure that the promises of being taken care of upon your return are kept. But you can do it, because you are a warrior, and that’s what warriors do.
