In response to PatsLifer's comment:
Well as they say the devil is in the details.
the IRS has the power to disrupt your life and livelihood that is the issue. When choices are taken away and the only choice you have that is administered by force is government run healthcare then I see that as an issue in a free market society.if all means of production, goods and wealth are concentrated and controlled by the government, that is not a good thing. Free markets use capital in the best way possible. Certainly more effectively than federal government. This in essence is what the tea party is about - taking power back from the federal government and giving it to the states all built upon our constitution and bill of rights. they have been painted by both parties and the media as racist, but that is not the truth. Those in power will do anything to protect it and the tea party before being corrupted was a challenge to this power base.
Another reason I am distrustful of the IRS is because they are on record of discriminating against opposition groups because these groups don't hold the same beliefs of those in power. That is a dangerous precedent. Of all,of. Sudden you hold a different view, can be targeted by the IRS, they have the power to make your life a living hell.
Given you are not American it may be hard for you to appreciate our beginnings, those beginnings built on a constitution and bill of rights that protect people, not government. As of this writing, those rights are being slowly stripped away. For example, the president passed NDAA Which gives government the authority to unlawfully arrest and detain a person without cause nor due process. This goes against our 4th amendment. The president also didn't turn back (as he promised when campaigning) the spying on Americans and collection of their conversations, etc. by the NSA. Also goes against the 4th amendment.
These things like obamacare, NDAA, NSA spying on US citizens by themselves may not be viewed as bad with the right spin.but combined, they go against what this country was all about. Individual freedom, liberty, etc.
Were you all up in arms over the Patriot Act with Dubya? Spare me this "spying" paranoid rhetoric. What a bunch of drama and rhetoric.
You're as naive as a 5 year old if you think this country hasn't been doing what it wants, when it wants, for YEARS, when it comes to that stuff. You think J Edgar Hoover was sitting on his hands all those years, do ya?
Obama doesn't care if you surf the web for porn and he ain't taking your guns. Whoa.
Hitler once tried using scare tactics like you psycho Tea Party types try to use today. I'd suggest reading a book. That might help. But, you're probably too old to be broken from the brainwashing.
Yes, let's have literally no gov't, no roads, no hospitals, no schools, nothing. Super.
And, I am not even a Democrat. lol
Russ, yes I was. Doesn't matter who is in office if the trample our civil liberties.
you should leave history to those that know. This country hasn't been doing what it wants, not if what it wants is up to the people and not the Fed, CFR and TC. These groups run things. The pres is just a figurehead.
tea party which I am not a part of doesn't use scare tactics genius. They at their essence are about protecting our rights and a return to the constitution. Both of which are in jeapordy now.
and, I didn't say I didn't want government, I said I would prefer the power balance shift from federal to the states. We don't need a big federal government. we need a strong state and local government with the federal government having very limited power.
Yes, I can tell you are not a democrat Because you are an idiot.
