"[T]he income tax is incompatible with a free society. The IRS routinely intrudes on our basic civil liberties and privacy rights -- and its intrusions are getting worse all the time. I want an America where it is no longer the government's business how much money you make and what you do with it."

Reader comments about this quote:
In a representative form of politics, one has to ask; who is the representative representing. If I can not take what ever percentage I want to out of an innocent third party's salary, neither can anyone that represents me or my rights. In a body politic of We The People, no person (individually or in concert) has de jure lawful authority to steal a percentage of another's wage. It is VERY, VERY, VERY obvious and clear that, the thieving representatives, along with their henchmen do not represent We The People but rather, a foreign despot with more rights, might, authority and power than the individual sovereign (individually or in concert). Amerika, with its IRS and other alphabet soup tyrants is a land of theft and duress.

    The federal income tax is one of the horrific banes of the Woodrow Wilson progressive era. Greater taxation, greater government intrusions and a much greater cause of the tremendous growth of excessive, wasteful, costly and bloated federal Big Brother bureaucracies.
