"I am opposed to that word 'force' "

Welcome to the wonderful world of politics! This representative is okay with THE USE OF VIOLENCE AND THEFT against an entire class of people...

"But dammnit, I gotta draw the line somewhere. I'm gonna take a moral stand, and do the right thing right now!

I'm gonna ban the word FORCE. Because it is just too darn revealing."

Love it. Good job congressman. Your check is in the mail.

Meybe the definition of voluntary in the BIZZARO WORLD

means that if the extorted theft called tax is not paid VOLUNTARY you will be made an example of. Your possessions will be stolen, you will be tortured in a torture prison.

Yah but this shill still spouts the lies of past generations.

The perpetual lie. First create a false national debt out of thin air, then we tell everyone they have to pay this debt after all it was acomplished in their good names.

Then they identify those who will not submit to immoral extorted theft. Then to squalsh any who would dare to not submit.

Voluntary as in being mugged

"Turn over your wallet voluntarily or die resisting."

Paying taxes is voluntary

You can voluntarily pay, or you can voluntarily be forced into prison. That is the logic of these kooks (I believe Michael Steele said they were voluntary also).

If the government does it, it's not illegal. But...

...if a criminal outside of government does it it is illegal.

That's what Nixon precisely admitted here:

And that's what this pathetic politician said in this interview. They are above the law, they think.

But more sinister is the idol-worshipping philosophy they embrace. They believe the state is God. So if the state does it, then it MUST be okay. Because in their mind the state is infallible. They worship the state.

Check out this famous 4-second clip of Nixon which embodies this idol worship.

Confused.

This representative is so confused. He says that he is against someone, a criminal, forcing others by stealing their property, but then says if government does it, it is okay.

And just like a politician, he objects to the correct word ("forcibly") when it exposes HIS crime.

Don't dare ask them for facts or evidence

Because none of their "tax agents" can provide any, check out the calls for yourself

If people are not forced to pay taxes...

Maybe he should let the IRS in on that so they'll...um, stop forcing people to pay taxes.

That may comes as somewhat of a surprise to

Irwin Schiff, Wesley Snipes, et al.

Ed and Elaine brown

basicly a death sentence over so called voluntary tax.

Former IRS agent Sherry Jackson almost paid with her life and has the scars of prison over these voluntary extorted theft they call tax.

lol

"well I assumed you were talking about something else as in someone committing a criminal act."

So, the logic here is, it isn't a crime if the gov't does it. Ok I'll remember that. But.. wait.. didn't Obama say that he can't violate the constitution because we are all in the gov't? Ok so, It's a "gov't to gov't transaction" then? Hm.. that doesn't seem right.

So I guess if we are all the gov't and we want to make these "gov't to gov't transactions illegal let's have a vote.

All in favor of making gov't to gov't transactions illegal say aye. All opposed say nay...... Hm that was a close one. Well instead of taking a count I declare the aye's have it ;).

I love www.isidewith.com shared it with everyone I know. If anything they realize its not just a red and blue idiot running for reelection.

Pussed Out As Usual

If the going gets tough, pussy out. That is the way of politicians, famous hypocrites, etc, just wimp out and stalk off.

NOW GIVE ME MY MONEY BACK YOU THIEVES!!!!!!!

Maybe someone should ask him

Maybe someone should ask him about why they will come in and take money from you anyway if you dont pay.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.
