Many are calling for Obama to resign, or for congress to impeach him. While this is a laudable goal, we need to keep our eyes on the prize — the repeal of the 16th amendment. No, this is not impossible. Not now. However, we can’t let the press dictate when the crisis is over. When Obama is impeached or he resigns, IT IS NOT OVER! We need to keep pushing and pushing on congress to get the 16th amendment repealed.
The reasoning is simple. The IRS is out of control. Then again, it has been since its inception. In the 1930s, FDR used to have Hoover and the FBI dig into the private lives of people FDR disliked. He would read all about their foibles, problems, and idiosyncrasies like it was some soap opera. We know he did this. If he used the FBI for these illegal purposes, you can bet he used the IRS for similar deeds. If you think he didn’t, you’re just naive enough to vote for Obama.
Richard Nixon had an enemies list and he routinely sent the IRS to harass his more vocal critics. When this information surfaced during the Watergate hearings, Hillary Rodham was a junior counsel. She admonished Nixon for using the IRS this way. Eventually, Nixon had to resign the presidency for these abuses, among others.
When Bill Clinton became president, First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton would regularly order the IRS to audit and otherwise harass Bill’s opponents. Which is even worse than you think because she wasn’t even in the chain of command! This is all part of the Barrett Report (2002) that looked into the abuses of the Clinton Administration with emphasis on using the IRS to intimidate and harass citizens. The report was redacted for national security purposes since it did contain sensitive and secret information. However, the democrats in congress got an additional 100 pages redacted for purely political purposes. You see, those who have seen the unredacted report have said that Hillary’s name is all over those extra 100 redacted pages. And since Hillary was the presumptive democrat nominee for president in 2008, they had to protect her. It seems Hillary learned well from Nixon.
Now, we have Barack Obama getting caught doing the same thing. The IRS was caught targeting conservative organizations like the Tea Party or other groups that used terms like patriot in their names. This illegal and unconstitutional harassment was done by subjecting these groups to a rigorous investigative process that requested unneeded and immaterial information through a draconian questionnaire with regard to getting tax exempt status. Let me repeat that: TAX EXEMPT STATUS. In other words, what they were doing did not constitute income within the meaning of the 16th amendment.
I am not going to bother to link to any of these stories. They are all over the web. Not so much on the sites of the liberal press but you can find them if you look.
What has Obama done? He claims he didn’t know what the IRS was doing. He claims it was rogue agents in the Cincinnati office. He sends his horde of bundists out on the TV news shows to dispel any notion that he had anything to do with this. In other words, he is trying to throw someone under the bus. The IRS official in charge is resigning, but the right-wing blogs have their teeth into this are aren’t letting go. The GOP members of congress are rightly angered and some of the democrats are as well. This isn’t turning out well for The One. And no matter how he tries to deflect the inquiries, they all lead back to him. Obama OWNS this.
But what we must do is to repeal the 16th amendment and pass the FairTax. If we allow the liberal press to run the show, they’ll let Obama off the hook. If he gets impeached or he resigns, they’ll claim it’s all over. NO! As long as the 16th amendment and the income tax exist, the possibility for this type of tyranny exists. If your child keeps getting into the cookie jar, you don’t just keep moving the cookie jar around or move it higher or try to hide it. You empty the cookie jar and show your child there are no more cookies. YOU REMOVE WHAT THE PERSON WANTS AND THEIR DESIRE FOR MISCHIEF WILL CEASE! Remove the income tax because as long as the IRS has control over who is or is not tax exempt, the next scum-sucking socialist bastard that gets elected president will do the same thing if he is certain the people have fallen asleep. What the gov’t wants is total control over your life. And they can do that because of the intrusive and mandatory nature of the income tax. Pass the FairTax, which is truly voluntary, and all of these problems go away.
During the Constitutional Convention in 1787, Roger Sherman from Connecticut was one of the framers of Article 1, Section 10.
No State shall enter into any Treaty, Alliance, or Confederation; grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal; coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts; pass any Bill of Attainder, ex post facto Law, or Law impairing the Obligation of Contracts, or grant any Title of Nobility.
Mr. Sherman knew the ravages of paper money and wanted the constitution to end it forever. So he said, “This is a favorable crisis for crushing paper money.”
Well, this is a favorable crisis for crushing the income tax. We cannot let this slip away. If we do, we enslave our children to another round of the very thing we are fighting now. End this now. Rip out socialism’s very heart — the income tax. Then we can finally live in the freedom, liberty, and opportunity the founders of our country intended.
