You can tear up that 1040 form, burn that 1099, and shred that corporate income tax filing for 2009. Senator Harry Reid said so in an interview posted a year ago:
Now, of course there is a lot to sift through with a YouTube video in terms of whether it was edited out of context, whether it was posted legitimately, and, most critically whether the parties involved are rotting in a federal prison somewhere for speaking out against the tyranny of the IRS.
If you have desires to act on this in a manner that puts you in direct conflict with the IRS, you have my prayers. But, as with the patriot recruitment effort of the Revolution, until I see that a significant enough force of the population at large is ready to come to the aid of any individual who decides to challenge the IRS head-on, I’ll still be filing my 1040 and leaving the judgment up to God.
15 ¶ Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel how they might entangle him in his talk.
16 And they sent out unto him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, and teachest the way of God in truth, neither carest thou for any man: for thou regardest not the person of men.
17 Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not?
18 But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites?
19 Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny.
20 And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription?
21 They say unto him, Caesar’s. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s.
22 When they had heard these words, they marvelled, and left him, and went their way.
In the meantime, I will work hand-in-hand with anyone who will help me lawfully and peaceably bring to an end the tyranny of the progressive taxation system and replace it with the bare minimum needed to defend our borders from foreign enemies through a fair tax system.
