Time to repeal the Patriot Act, NDAA and abolish DHSSubmitted by legalizeliberty on Mon, 06/24/2013 - 09:31
Many Americans have known for a long time that the IRS is a rogue agency that will readily break the law to accomplish its "mission."
A friend of ours tells the story: He got a call from the local police department in the pre-dawn hours of a dark night. The dispatcher told him he needed to go immediately to his business, a heating and air conditioning business. When he arrived he learned that his business had been burglarized. The investigating police wanted him to determine what had been taken. After a couple of hours of searching he could find nothing noticeable missing. Even some cash had been left behind. "Well, you need to get ready for an IRS audit," the policeman said. Sure enough, a few days later when he arrived at work he found a chain and padlock on his door and a notice from the IRS to contact them.
In case you're interested, the audit revealed that he was due a refund. Nobody paid any attention, even the Congressman whom the business man contacted.The result of what happens when government operates in secret—whether it be the Beaufort County Sheriff's Department and the Washington Police Department or the FBI/CIA, can be seen in the FISA Court. That's the apparatus set up by the Patriot Act to review government eavesdropping. We now learn that the "Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act" Court approved 99.97% of the government's request to snoop, and that many of them were aimed at Americans, within America, not foreigners outside the USA.
