Question of the Day

Should Congress make English the official language of the U.S.?

Had enough IRS abuse? Is the land of the free and the home of the brave still capable of recognizing the chill brush of tyranny? Can we sense the creeping feudalism infecting our government institutions? These past few weeks have confronted us with the IRS systematically stomping on the civil rights of groups with which it doesn’t agree.

This type of statist intimidation is a crime in America. We do not tolerate such behavior. In the past, we have called out the National Guard to ensure systematic violation of civil rights is stopped. Institutions have changed their behavior to fall into line with our values codified in the Constitution — or they have been shut down.

Freedom demands courage. The question stands: Have we had enough IRS abuse? The IRS is out of control. Conceived as a bad tax experiment, the IRS has become a feared oppressor. In the United States of America, we don’t have to stick with a failed experiment; tell your representatives and senators to immediately pass the Fair Tax proposal currently before Congress. Enacting the Fair Tax will phase out the IRS completely, expand the tax base and maintain the revenue we all know our government needs to serve our nation. Only the Fair Tax ends the IRS. Learn the facts for yourself at www.fairtax.org. Tell Congress you want the Fair Tax passed and the IRS gone. Political thuggery cannot be tolerated by a free and open society.
