Treasury Sec. Donald Regan's ( 1981-85 ) statement before the Washington Press Corps a few decades ago ;

“The purpose of the Revenue Code is not to raise revenue, The purpose of the Revenue Code is to implement PUBLIC POLICY"

lol @ Larken

I wholly agree with the previous perspective comments and wanted to give Larken a well deserved bumparoo.

sounds like he's bellyaching to me

Betcha anything, he'd probably be more than happy to get time in front of a congressional hearing to say what's been done to him and other's that he knows. To belittle these proceedings that have the potential to expand out into the areas he's talking about - which ARE expanding out into the areas he's talking about (Gibson guitar raids) - isn't helpful, IMO. Highlighting this can and should lead to highlighing the other numerous infractions of this cabal leading up to the entire IRS hoax. It's why we have to use this event to enlighten even more. The other day, in a conversation with someone about this, I brought up the fact that the 16thA didn't confer any new taxes and that there are several SCOTUS cases stating this. This is someone who dealt with business taxes in a previous job and was very interesting about hearing more on this. We needed a platform to get the truth out, and we should not disparage the 'theater' but take advantage of it while we have the chance.

They sent armed thugs to raid Larken's home.
They put him in prison for a year.
They stole all his money.
Not for lying or cheating or breaking any laws.
Just for speaking the truth.
And he has the GALL to complain about that?
What a wimp.

And those guys who signed the Declaration of Independence -- more damn bellyachers.

Calling it as I see it. He's saying that the IRS targeting TEA Party/conservative groups is nothing compared to what happened to him and because of that he's dismissive about the proceedings. It's that part I don't agree with. I know he went through hell, but so did those people trying to get their 5-0 whatevers. It wasn't the same kind of hell, but for them it was hell just as much as for him it was hell. It would have been great had he been magnanimous, saying that although he and his friend were egregiously wronged and had no platform like a Congressional Hearing to recount his horror and obtain satisfaction against the IRS, he's happy that someone is finally being heard about the its transgressions. Dr Paul is almost always magnanimous, and it's a trait I truly admire.
And I reiterate, this is our opportunity to expose more of the nefarious actions of the IRS and explain what it's really for. What's that saying? Never let a crisis go to waste?

Larken gets it right, as usual.

Complaining about the IRS discriminating against Tea Party groups looking for tax-exempt status IS like complaining that Hitler occasionally jaywalked.

Larken offers a free e-book of Kicking The Dragon, in this video, to folks who simply promise to READ it. If you need convincing that the IRS is just a gang of thugs who have flags outside their offices, maybe you should get it. But if you're already convinced, Larken's magnum opus, The Most Dangerous Superstition, is a much better choice. It doesn't merely expose the IRS -- it exposes the whole idea of "government" as a gigantic con game to steal our lives, liberties and property.

IRS Power over people - no joke.

The greatest treason took place right here in DC in 1913. Ever since the lifeblood of freedom has been sucked out of the American citizen, in the form of diminishing values for continuous work at the same sustaining levels. The Fed prints the money, and the IRS takes it back, paying out interest on the borrowed paper, and to that extent lessening the money available for governance. After 100 years of this drain, the game is almost over, the transfer of wealth nearly complete. Only free energy, health self reliance, and IRS/Fed disestablishment can free the debt slaves the US citizenry have become. Maybe an ET outing would also be a game changer, if the government would get some courage to do so. Not too many folk care though. Sport, entertainment, games, and sex - that's what fills those otherwise contemplative hours. Glad that paradigm change is now inevitable, gotta be better times ahead.

I say, clean them out,

I say, clean them out, bring out all their dirty laundry, use the current attention of the recent scandals, to educate through stories like these, to educate the public, to inform them just what it is the irs has been doing over the years....make the case for those who have been yelling but always ignored, for those in the past, for those in the present, and for those still to come.........dammit, if you say the system works, will work, then prove it to those who have given up the civil route, give them something to fight for........

"Go on Chief, give me something to fight for"

Send the warning shot, bring down the IRS

or wait some more, then some more, and again some more, while hoping that something will finally come along

Im sorry, i dont mean to be pessemistic, its a frustration for the situation we are all and continue to be in

ive consoled myself that this may take generations, just as long as it happens(thats my hope speaking).......true change mind you, not false change, not manipulated change, and certainly not NO change

In my opinion, it's more significant than Watergate...


I agree ...

If People Go to Jail and Lose their Jobs, we still have the rule of law.

If People do NOT go to Jail and Lose their Jobs, America has been taken over.

Obviously THEY believe the latter.

I think this is the point Larken is making.

He does have a way of putting this into perspective

Larkin's generous book offer sounds very informative and provocative. How long will we allow these bureaucrats brazen contempt for righteousness to make us seem small in our own eyes?

"But the men that went up with him said, We be not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we.
And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature.
And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight." - Numbers 13:31-33

Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them. - Frederick Douglass
