The IRS Must Go Away
Given the fact that the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare, is one of the most egregious and burdensome pieces of legislation that has ever become law; it is no wonder that the former head of the IRS, Douglas Shulman visited the White House over 150 times since President Obama took office in 2009. And those visits are only the ones that were recorded! Of all the governmental agencies, bureaucracies, and regulations that exist today, the IRS is an agency that should be the most germane with respect to the purpose of its existence, which is to collect taxes from citizens. And the collection of taxes by the IRS from every tax payer should have nothing to do with any other factor, not the least of which is the political leanings of individuals, groups, organizations, businesses, etc. There would be no IRS if it were not for the 16th Amendment, (thanks a lot Woodrow Wilson) which grants Congress the right to “lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived…”
Given the recent corruption surrounding the IRS regarding its blatant assault on organizations and individuals lawfully seeking tax exempt status, perhaps it is now time to have an adult conversation about the efficacy of such a harsh governmental task master. This leads me back to the reason(s) that the head of the IRS would need to visit the Obama White House over 150 times that we know of, or at least that has been reported by multiple sources in the media. It is particularly troubling given the fact that no IRS chief during the previous Administration ever even came close to visiting the White House that often. I mean, prominent members of President Obama’s Cabinet have not visited the White House that often, at least not that we are aware. Again, of all the agencies that have been created by our government the IRS should conduct all transactions relevant to the collection of taxes with absolutely no regard for the personal, political leanings of any tax payer. The IRS, in conjunction with the current Presidential Administration is truly the U.S. Gestapo when it comes to the collection of taxes because they are using control, intimidation; and attempts to claim, whether directly or indirectly, outright impunity in the latest scandal simply because they think they can. There is no precedent for this kind of behavior. And though supporters of the current Administration may choose to disbelieve what is going on, that does not change the reality of the situation. You may choose to believe what you will, but the evidence seems to mounting against this Administration.
In conclusion I have provided the following link, which may enlighten readers relative to the reasons for Shulman’s multitude of visits to the White House:
The preceding link is from the IRS website, and contains a few of the tax provisions of the Affordable Care Act. I completely understand how anyone attempting to read some of the tax provisions relating to Obamacare, or any other IRS related document, could become physically ill by doing so, but it is essential to be educated on all IRS provisions that have a profoundly adverse effect upon tax payers. The IRS seems to be incapable of performing the tasks that it already has, not to mention the fact that it is the controlling agency over Obamacare. Yes, the IRS must go away. Sound radical? Well, the American Revolution was viewed as brazenly radical too, but that outcome seems to be working rather well. The more the American people accept encroachments by our government as normal, the more freedom, independence, and liberty we will lose. And if the usurpation of our rights is permitted to become the “new” normal, then in time we will look back and conclude that it was at such times that we should have implemented the Declaration’s proclamation regarding the security of “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,” that “…whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it…”
