You have no security since Congress can take it all under the tax code if they so desire.

    You're right about that jim, the tax code in and of itself is just a bunch of circular gobbledy gook designed to deflect and confuse. It doesn't make sense at all...on any level. It is a document of theft by law.

    America is under a constant siege of theft. It can't happen here? It has already happened and is still happening. What security have I for the other nineteen? NONE. FDR proved that by issuing an executive order making possession of money ILLEGAL and a punishable offense. Every gold dollar in circulation -- the entire nation's money supply -- was confiscated and replaced with interest-bearing, inflation-producing, debt. And as long as the government 'educates' us, we will bear the yoke to the slaughterhouse with hardly a complaint.

    I just wanted to speak to you about something from the Internal Revenue Code. It is the last sentence of section 509A of the code and it reads: 'For purposes of paragraph 3, an organization described in paragraph 2 shall be deemed to include an organization described in section 501C-4, 5, or 6, which would be described in paragraph 2 if it were an organization described in section 501C-3.' And that's just one sentence out of those fifty-seven feet of books. ~ Ronald Reagan
