"[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."
Stephen Moore
Director of Fiscal Policies, The CATO Institute
testimony before the U.S. House of Representatives Ways and Means Committee

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.

    Once freed, always free. The Right to be noncompliant. It is a choice. Marie Louise v. Marot.
     -- Ronw13, Yachats Or     
    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.
