Map 21 Bill Allows Government To Confiscate Your Guns On Any Unpaid Taxes

Map 21 Bill Allows Government To Confiscate Your Guns On Any Unpaid Taxes

Word on the blogosphere has it that the MAP-21 transportation bill allows the federal government to revoke the Second Amendment of citizens accused of not paying taxes.

S. 1813 or MAP-21 (short for Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century) was sponsored by California Democrat Barbara Boxer and passed in the Senate earlier this year. It is described as a “bill to reauthorize Federal-aid highway safety construction programs, and for other purposes.”

Critics argue that “hidden legislative jargon” in the bill gives the IRS the authority to grab anybody’s passport who is accused of owing $50,000 or more in delinquent taxes.

“According to the text of the bill, if the IRS Secretary is informed by the Commissioner that an individual owes $50,000 or more, the Secretary is authorized to have the head of the State Department revoke the individual’s passport. In other words, get audited and have your passport revoked now, fight for your due process later,”Helen Whalen Cohen wrote in April, a month after the bill cleared the hurdles and became law. Specifically, the tax provisions of the bill are a direct violation of the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments of the Constitution.

Rand Paul voted NO on the Senate side of this bill!

It gets updated every day. Next, it will be "facecrime" for not looking pleased enough in public.

Live Free Or Die

An old friend of mine once said,

"If you're gonna die, you may as well go down as a wolf, than as a sheep.

And here's a great one from Solzhenitzyn's "Gulag Archipelago".
“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”
― Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn
