Regarding the "IRS Targeting" issue, I received an email today from a Michigan Congressman (below my signature). I shared with him and our Liberty Asheville network my first thoughts that came to mind...
Dr. Dan Benishek asks, "Do you think the President knew about targeting of conservative groups by the IRS?"
Well, that's a largely irrelevant question, isn't it?
A more relevant question is, "Why is America still plagued with an 'income' tax system which violates the natural right of privacy?"
Or, "How can any individual be 'free' in such an authoritarian collectivist social-economic environment that prohibits privacy?"
The founders made it explicitly clear that there should be NO direct tax placed upon a free individual (US Constitution, Article I, Section 9, Clause 4), yet American generations have allowed a limited government to grow more unlimited and simultaneously violate the law of the land and our natural rights in this area (along with many others) for about a century now.
If we entirely eliminated all direct taxes, no one in the gov't system could ever use taxation as a means to target any specific individual or group of individuals.
Oh, and we'd restore our unalienable natural individual right to privacy.
Seems like a no-brainer, eh?
