Ron Paul Release your TAXES!

I could not let this pass. I have been a member of the Daily Paul for
over 4 years. I have never known that Ron Paul has not released, or from what I have just found out, filed taxes in 10 years. It is time to call on the good Dr. to set the bar once again going into the convention.
I know some of you do not like Bix Weir, however, I completely agree with him on this one.

Re: Release Your Taxes NOW...RON PAUL!!

Dear Sir:

I recently received SHOCKING information from a very reliable inside source in Washington stating that YOU HAVE NOT PAID ANY INCOME TAXES IN TEN YEARS! If this is true...I am speechless! Normally I would brush off such wild "conspiracy" stories but some of my best sources were saying it's actually very common amongst those in Congress to avoid paying their fair share of taxes. I even contacted your campaign office and when I asked about this topic all I got from them was "NO COMMENT".

Who do you "Washington Insiders" think you are? Do you think you are not accountable to the American people when you run for the highest office in our land?! I am stunned and saddened to hear this news and I DEMAND that you release 15 years of tax returns IMMEDIATELY to clear it up!

um, I'd say GOOD FOR HIM!

"a very reliable inside source in Washington stating that YOU HAVE NOT PAID ANY INCOME TAXES IN TEN YEARS!"

Why TF would he have to submit to the illegal, UnConstitutional CRIMINAL, MURDEROUS Bankster Cartel??

Besides, he's no dummy. If he has tax shelters and knows the difference between investments and income, which I'm sure he does, MORE POWER TO HIM!

Anyone who pushes the free citizenry to actually pay, and submit to the bankster cartel, is no friend of liberty, at all.

besides anyone who's calling on people to pay for income tax, truly have not researched into the founding of the Federal Reserve/IRS/16th Amendment.

WhyTF should ANYONE pay into a system in which any stolen wealth would be used to pay for illegal wars abroad and police state at home? Not to mention the very real fact that NONE of the income tax goes to pay off anything, but interest on what the Federal Reserve is holding the citizenry over?

what kind of sad 'logic' is this??

"Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it's realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy." - Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul

Well said AnCap

If anyone wants to see what happens to YOUR tax dollars, just google "Grace Commission" which was initiated by none other than Ronald Reagan and have your eyes opened!


Here is one tidbit from that very report:

"100 percent of what is collected is absorbed solely by interest on the Federal debt and by Federal Government contributions to transfer payments. In other words, all individual income tax revenues are gone before one nickel is spent on the services which taxpayers expect from their Government."

" In Thee O Lord do I put my trust " ~ Psalm 31:1~

So let me get this

So let me get this straight....

Being a tax cheat is now the smoking gun to get you out of the running for President? So I guess then you would have to settle for Treasury Secretary?

Maybe Dr. Paul has a bogus social security number and fraudulent birth certificate as well...

wait a minute....that means he re-qualified to be President.

We have TSA check points on our roads, at our airports, and very soon at our schools and malls. Police state thugs taking blood at check points and stealing peoples property and soon forced vaccinations.

We have out of control Federal and State governments turnings over our country to the United Nations agenda 21. Poisoning our families with GMO crops, fluoride in our water, chemical and biological poison in man made drugs.

A federal government that in the last ten years has caused more death on this planet than all the other sick freaks that came before them.

And YOU want to know about the taxes of Ron Paul! The ONLY one who has tried to stop this genocide.


Natural Order

RON made this an issue...

Remember this? It shocked me when I read it.


Ron called on Mitt to release his taxes. Why would he do that, unless he knows something about Mitt, and that he could pass the same test with flying colors?

Ron doesn't usually demagogue about issues that don't matter. He wouldn't bring up this issue without a real, concrete reason.

Patience, I think it's good. I'm going to call his D.C. office tomorrow, as well as his campaign number to request(as a multi-time donor to Ron Paul), that he once again set the bar higher than anyone else in releasing the tax records. You should do the same. We can corner Mittens together.

Ron didn't tell Mitt too, he

Ron didn't tell Mitt too, he just said it might be a good idea since that's what the majority of the population want nowadays. Ron strongly supports tax protest.

this is such a lame attempt, it's embarassing.

Troy, the man who wrote this

Troy, the man who wrote this letter is the BIGGEST fan of Ron Paul alive.

He's trying to 1)hold Ron to the same standard as we're holding everyone else, and 2) give Ron a chance to prove he's morally better than Romney on this issue.

If Ron releases his tax returns at just the right time, it could box Romney into a corner. Come on man....he's not trying to have a "gotcha" moment with Paul, he believes Ron will pass with flying colors, the point is to show the world he walks the walk that Romney will only talk.

why would someone believe this?

OR believe that Ron Paul is going to release his tax returns just because someone accused him of not paying OR believe that if he did release his tax returns that Romney would follow suit?


#1 If he did release his taxes we're the only ones who would care. Everyone else would say, "so what."
#2 If he isn't paying taxes I admire him even more, but he would certainly be in jail.
#3 Bix Weir is a putz.

I agree...

I dont see paying taxes as some sort of moral thing. The Gov just pisses it away anyways on wars and welfare and bailouts etc...well if you care to get technical, it goes to service the interest payment on our debt, then they print, borrow, tax to pay for all that crap. I'm with you. If Ron Paul has somehow not paid his taxes in ten years then hell ya! more power to him

"I am Troll fighter, number one"



Dr. Paul Needs to Do This!

Dr. Paul needs to release his taxes and force Romney's hand! The Dem's will jump on board and provide the needed media push after he does.

You've gotta figure that Harry Reid had some inside info to start this ball rolling ... we need to keep the subject at the forefront of the headlines!

Distribute the Open Letter far and wide ... nobody will know how to take Ron Paul's own people making the demand ...

We all know Dr. Paul is clean ...

RON PAUL 2012!

None of us should be paying federal income tax

I agree with KingWm's comments earlier in this thread. We all know that the IRS was setup over us without constitutional authority and that it functions as the complement to the Federal Reserve. Frankly, I would have even more respect for Ron Paul if he truly HAS NOT paid any federal income tax.


Spread the word about Operation Credit Card Freedom Day. Pay only $19.13 monthly on your credit cards until the Banksters get sent to jail and Congress takes a second look at the Fe

The IRS Income Tax is 100% 'abridged contact' ...voluntary!!

Ron Paul does not have to prove he has paid the IRS a penny, if he never signed any contract with them to start with!

IRS can only collect full income tax returns from those who are willingly apart of and on file with IRS deceptive 'rights to work' program which is always hidden in certain employer's W4s.

If you did not sign these forms, and have not paid the IRS before you have no obligation to hand over to the IRS one single red cent. Ever.

In fact, you may be entitled to sue the IRS for fraud if enough of you gather into one union. Churches should join together and sue the entire IRS for fraud!

There is not even one constitutional law to the IRS basis, they are just allowed to communisticly extract the income tax if you have already previously signed their deceptive forms. If you have already paid into the income tax, they got you. You are liable and 90% of the time they can and will take your funds. If you have not paid into it, you're not liable; so DON'T pay into it, learn your rights of Trial by Jury and learn why Ron Paul is not obligated to pay the IRS anything. If he exempted himself from certain disclosure when running for office, avoided a pension, no paperwork, then he may not have ANY taxes on file with the IRS. Learn and take back the law.

Paying the income tax is voluntary UNLESS

you work for the federal government. The income tax IS CONSTITUTIONAL because it is voluntary. It is not a direct tax, but an excise tax. Because working for the federal government is considered to be a privilege, federal workers must pay the income tax. We private sector workers volunteer to pay it by putting any amount in the "wages" row on form 1040 at the end of the year. You must pay the income tax if you declare your private sector earnings as "wages". I applaud anyone who legally and properly doesn't pay income tax because they do not support the unconstitutional things the government (or Fed?) does with our money. I post this for a couple reasons. One, to spread the word, and two because my personal opinion is that this RP tax issue is a non-issue. The only reason, again in my opinion, for addressing disclosure of the returns is because the public at large doesn't understand these things, and it could help sink Romney (maybe) if RP is clean and if Romney has to withdrawal for non-payment of taxes or some such (maybe not likely, but worth a shot). Go here to read my explanation of the voluntary income tax. I am not an attorney and am not offering legal tax advise. I am giving information about a book and a website that lays it all out in irrefutable and undeniable and simple terms.

Paying the income tax is VOLUNTARY!

I am Ron Paul.

and just for the record

I am still volunteering to pay income taxes because so far I am too scared to fight the system (don't hate me for this).

And, I highly recommend you guys go to that website and check out the examples. There are literally hundreds of examples of successful refunds. And I don't mean stories, they have copies of the 1040's, IRS correspondence and cancelled refund checks, etc., with refund amounts exceeding 30 grand in some cases, including refunds of income AND payroll taxes.

I am Ron Paul.

No, its voluntary even for a member of Congress!!

It is COMPLETELY voluntary for a member of Congress to not pay the income tax if they have A) never accepted government pensions B) not filled out their specific wages income forms C) did not apply to receive benefits.

As I understand it, Ron Paul has done all three of these things.
Therefore he would not be obligated to pay any IRS Income Tax. He may not have any tax returns at all, or more likely, they are state taxes.

Whereas the others, most likely have hundreds of pages in un-filed Tax Returns. Especially Romney as he is not only a criminal, he is unwilling to expose where his swiss bank accounts are too!



I like Bix's RtR stuff... but

I like Bix's RtR stuff...

but this is dumb. The man doesn't even participate in the Congressional retirement program. He many times worked for free as a doctor. He doesn't take any lobbyist money. He is willing to be our President for $40,000 a year.

Anyone questioning the integrity of this man can f%$^ off as far as I'm concerned.

“Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it’s realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy.”

This is not Dumb....... this

This is not Dumb....... this is brilliant. Romney will not release his. This shows our client is clean when he releases his. this shows the dumbed down republicans that Ron Paul is a walk the talk man. I fully support this.

No one cares that he will only take 40,000.00 a year or that he has forgone his congressional retirement. But here he is showing leadership and showing Romney up for what he is.

still dumb.

still dumb.

“Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it’s realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy.”

He Already Took The Lead

This would be unfair to Ron Paul. He cannot be expected to jump though hoops every time someone spouts a hearsay allegation.

Contrary to Romney, Ron Paul has already set a positive example in many situations. Paul has nothing to prove. One more thing would be meaningless and no one would really care. The Congressional ethics office reviews the tax returns, anyway.

Releasing tax returns will not help Ron Paul take the nomination from Romney nor will it hurt Romney.

Bix Weir says if Ron Paul has not paid income tax

for 10 years "then we have a serious problem with our candidate and the last thing we need is another President with skeletons in his closet."

At this point I wouldn't believe there is a candidate without skeletons, except for maybe the Constitution Party candidate, Virgil Goode, of whom I don't know enough about.

My guess is he won't release them as I heard someone state on the radio about Paul, "he is dirty."

I would still vote for him if he doesn't release his returns since there is no viable alternative. No one is perfect.

Ron Paul has NO skeletons....

Ron Paul has NO skeletons.... If he had skeletons, the media would have crucified him 5 years ago...

I think one major point is

that we cannot ask Romney to release his tax returns if RP does not. It should not be a problem if RP is squeaky clean like we all believe he is, and once he does, he sets the precedent for Romney to follow. I don't know what the fuss is about, but it is hypocritical for us to ask for Romney's returns if we don't also get RPs. For the record, I am sure he is clean...

I am Ron Paul.

This is NOT a smear...

but rather it is an excellent idea! I have no fear that Dr. Paul could release 10 years of tax records without fear. It would put tremendous pressure on Mittens AND it would put Ron Paul in the position of of a real competitor and a real threat. It is high time for Ron Paul to go on the offensive.

On the other hand...

If Ron Paul (virtually impossible to imagine) HAS been evading taxes, I certainly would rather find out sooner than later. But really I think this is more as a weapon against Mittens than a serious accusation of the good doctor.

Honestly, it doesn't make a difference to me

if he hasn't paid some taxes. The tax system is fraudulent anyway, and none of us should be paying it. Besides, income tax is voluntary for anyone who earns money outside of the Federal Government.

I am Ron Paul.

but still

I think it is something we need to know, especially since we are pressuring Obamney to release his returns...

I am Ron Paul.

I suppose all of Ron Paul's political opponents over the years

were just too polite to mention this alleged malfeasance.
