IRS-Attack-Dog 2

If Obama would Use the IRS Against us, Wiretapping isn’t Far-fetched

It’s shocking that the leadership at the IRS was not taken away in handcuffs. They committed political crimes against American citizens who had opinions contrary to those of the political party in power.

We expect this type of abuse of power to be used in the former Soviet Union and the Eastern-bloc nations. Surveillance was the name of the game.

Thanks to filings in a federal lawsuit in Ohio, there is a list with 426 names on it that is “top-heavy with conservative groups”:

  • 62 had Tea Party or Tea Party Patriots in the name
  • an additional 14 had Patriots in the name
  • 30 groups had 9/12 or Liberty in the name (9/12 refers to groups inspired by conservative television personality Glenn Beck)

In all, 282 conservative groups were on the IRS list, about two-thirds of the total number of groups that got additional scrutiny. (NPR)

It doesn’t matter if the Left or the Right is using a government agency to target its opposition. Let me say that this is just one more reason to get rid of the IRS and go with a consumption tax (you only pay tax when you spend money) or what is called a “Fair Tax.” (My only problem with the Fair Tax is that it does not affect the growth of government.)

What happened to those employed by the IRS who more than likely targeted these and other groups? Almost nothing. The Republicans rolled over like they always seem to do. In this case, there’s a good possibility that they were relieved that these groups were attacked since it put their political positions in jeopardy. The Democrats weren’t going to complain for the same reason…
