theft by another name

Years ago, Congressman Hansen of Idaho created the list below of powers exercised by the Infernal Robbery Slime. There is nothing Constitutionally authorized about their very existence, let alone what they do. That, of course, doesn’t matter much. A handful of people fight and win against them. Many more attempt and lose.

It is screamingly obvious that no free country was designed with an organization like this having any part in it. You will know we have liberty when they are no longer part of your world.

Only the IRS can attach 100% of a tax debtor’s wages and/or property.

Only the IRS can invade the privacy of a citizen without court process of any kind.

Only the IRS can seize property without a court order.

Only the IRS can force a citizen to try his case in a special court governed by the IRS.

Only the IRS can compel the production of documents, records, and other materials without a court case being in existence.

Only the IRS can with impunity publish the details of a citizens debt.

Only the IRS can legally, without a court order, subject citizens to electronic surveillance.

Only the IRS can force waiver of statute of limitations and other citizen’s rights through the threat of Arbitrary assessment.

Only the IRS uses extralegal coercion. Threats to witnesses to examine their taxes regularly produces whatever evidence the IRS dictates.

Only the IRS is free to violate a written agreement with a citizen.

Only the IRS uses reprisals against citizen and public officials alike.

Only the IRS can take property on the basis of conjecture.

Only the IRS is free to maintain lists of citizen guilty of no crime for the purpose of harassing and monitoring them.

Only the IRS envelops all citizens.

Only the IRS publicly admits that it’s purpose is to instill fear in the citizenry as a technique of performing it’s function.”
