"Abolish The IRS" Look What You've Done To The CPAC Conversation!

"Abolish The IRS" Look What You've Done To The CPAC Conversation!

Look What You've Done
I'm talking about the influence we've had with Ron Paul's leadership. Think back to 2008...
How would that have sounded?.. "Abolish The IRS"

I know Cruz is slimey but he gets an audience going and millions think he's great.


Conservative firebrand Ted Cruz launches political convention with crowd-pleasing demand to abolish the IRS

Cruz is a Texas senator and likely presidential candidate
He wants to replace the IRS with a smaller agency that would collect postcard-sized income tax returns based on a flat tax rate
Cruz also wants to 'repeal every word of Obamacare'
President Obama said on Super Bowl Sunday that there was 'not a smidgen of corruption' in an IRS scandal involving the targeting of tea party groups
'You keep on using this word,' Cruz retorted, channeling a character from The Princess Bride. 'I do not think it means what you think it means.'
Ted Cruz, the rock-ribbed conservative Texas senator who figures to be a factor in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, told thousands of conservatives Thursday morning that the IRS should go the way of the dodo.

'We need to abolish the IRS,' he said, calling instead for a flat income tax rate and a user-friendly tax return that can be filed on a postcard.

That verbal gauntlet, thrown as much at a near-century of tax collection as at the Obama administration, was Cruz's biggest applause line.

'By virtue of your being here today,' he jokingly cautioned the nation's largest annual gathering of politically conservative activists, 'tomorrow each and every one of you is going to be audited by the IRS.'

Be aware of people that wanna

Be aware of people that wanna get rid of the IRS< because most want to replace it with a 23% Federal sales tax where EVERYONE will now pay....

Ron Paul is right. Get rid of the IRS and replace it with NOTHING!!

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

Cruz looks like a VP at best

He already looks like VP.

Cruz is good right where he is... Senator from TX...

He is NOT eligible to be President, therefore he cannot be Vice President either.

Pretty decent voice in the Senate, should be a good ally to a President Paul.

Are you a POT or a PET - Person Embracing Tyranny?

FYI: Cruz is already a Co-Sponsor to Rand's Audit the Fed bill




Seeing people go into their Goldman Sachs zionists shill tirades are just silly.

Cruz makes a stand, and he fights for it. I don't agree with his hawkish positions at all, but on the Constitution he is a big ally and certainly more vocal about audit the fed than Cornyn and Hutchinson ever were.


You know, I just remembered

The GOP hasn't imploded yet.

We're thinking way ahead of schedule here.

The GOP is on rails to self destruct. They don't have a prayer.

The country HAS to descend into darkness before the light will return.

What was I thinking getting all excited about Ron Paul's sentiments being echoed.

That's all it is. Just an echo. A haunting one at that.

The silence when Ted

The silence and nervous gasp when Ted mentioned Ron Paul was heartbreaking. The loud cheers were for the hot button issues like Obamacare. No surprises here.

Had I been there, I would have been standing and cheering at the mention of Dr. Paul. I wasn't there. The disenfranchisement from the GOP last round still leaves a sour taste in my mouth.

It is nice to hear things like "Audit the Fed" and "Abolish the IRS" coming out of his mouth, though. Maybe the drones will eventually wake up.

Who knows.

Whats wrong with me?

Whats wrong with me? I like every word Cruz is saying...

But I still don't trust him, why not? What's wrong with him, or is it me? What did he do earlier to make me so skeptical of him?

Please give me reasons not to trust this man to do good to your(I am Swedish) republic?

I can give you reasons not to trust him, alright.

What's his record, anyway? Remember, when George Bush was running for President his campaign speeches sounded almost identical to Ron Paul's. You can't trust anybody who hasn't put in the time and backed it up with their actions. Everybody is going to be talking that way leading up to the next campaign. They always do.

If you put

enough "decoys" out you will dilute the threat of unity.

It's a "Win Win" for the Establishment either way.


His words are like

the "bucket of feed" the farmer holds up and bangs on to get the sheep to come running into the corral to get caught for market!

I have no doubt the Wall Street gang will pour the money to his campaign, if that is what you want to call it.


ted cruz wife connection to goldman sachs is shady


Albert Camus — 'The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.'

Truth Serum

Ron Paul

ran as a repub for a reason, not because he is one, but because we need a means to an ends. Why do you think Rand is smoozing up to D-bag Hannity? Cruz is a pud, no doubt about it, but, he is another arrow in our quiver. Remember not everyone reads the Daily Paul. Unfortunately. We have to pull in all the gunz for the next one. Its the only way. We all saw what happened before. We need the populace to climb on board, just long enough, that their short attention spans will allow, and get it done.



you buyin Cruz's schtick huh?

Interesting to me actually, since instead of saying stuff like that, he should actually be honest and have a shred of integrity and begin creating legislation to do what he says he wants to do.

Its ok for you and I to SAY we should abolish the IRS, but when he says it, I think its like a team's coaches saying ' someone should coach this team to a win".

what am I missing here?

Thank you for the bump

Ted Cruz

doesn't back down from a fight. If this came up, he'd fight for it. He may not win, but if he says it, he's done it so far.



"if this came up"?
what's that mean? If it came up in a vote in the congress?

a senator from one of our largest states who is one of the current darlings of the gop? and by golly gee, he just cant for the life of him figure out how to get enough folks behind him to bring legislation up to do just that?

But by golly, if it came up magically somehow, he'd fight for it!


he's a douchebag tool who knows what to say and when. reminds me of Clinton.

He's already a co-sponsor




What a Douche! He said he'd support a Fed audit..and he is!!!!

If you notice, no one is really pushing for a Fed Audit right now, not even Rand. Must be the zionists or something, amirite?


holycrap agonzo

you're not listening.

Cruz is supporting stuff that's cool now for a "libertarian" to do. thats all. its good to do. he didnt LEAD on that either!!

He isnt leading the charge on the "idea" he talked about with the IRS!!!

I know, you'll vote for him no matter what. and we wonder why we are where we are.

Abolish the IRS is a libertarian idea?

I dont think so. It's been talked about by both gop and libertarians for years.

I never said he'd be leading the charge, but he'd fight for it. It was very nice of Ted to step in and help Rand last year, without any preparation.

We sent Ted up there to fight, and he is. I don't think either will get the GOP nomination..which is where people start to divide themselves in Cruz vs Paul camps.

I dont think the Democrat led legislature in Kentucky will allow Rand to run for both president and senate, I don't think Ted will get passed the canadian born thing.

But they're great for liberty, even if you don't like Ted's foreign policy or the zionist goldmann sachs connection (Ron Paul got donations from Goldman Sachs as well)


Michael Nystrom's picture

Thanks BT, for posting

Much appreciated from a guy who's trying to stay abreast of the 2016 GOP playoff picture.

I see your buddy Ben Carson will be speaking on Saturday. Here is an interesting article:

I just saw that and bumped it

Ben certainly brings some good qualities and he knows how to zap with some zingers like Ron Paul -- getting people to wake up.

When I was young in the 50' and 60's I don't remember people being so focused on a national leader like they are now. People took initiative. They served each other and thereby succeeded in their local businesses.
They were neighborly... not just my imagination.

My dad would always introduce me to the owner of a business he patronized, the grocery, lumber yard, hardware store, drug store.
People were on a first name basis.

They were the LEADERS. Not some politicians off in D.C.

Corporatism has streamlined control in America. Instead of companies and industries having to influence and manipulate 50 different legislatures, they've moved towards a central control model of concentrating on D.C. and aiming to get national legislation to pave the way for them.

That quality of local acquaintance is what I see in Ben Carson from personal contact with him.

Cruz says we need to end the lawlessness

However, he violates the law every single working day as a senator. He is paid in a private bank's debt note that is unlawful tender because of the direct violation of Constitutional Tender Laws.

So Cruz is more of the same. Political speech to get elected. He will not obey the tender law. He wants to point out other's violations before he reconciles his own breaches.

More fail...

The most powerful Law of Nature is Time. It is finite and we all will run out of it. Use this Law to your advantage, for it offers you infinite possibilities...

Not my first thought

Your response was not my first thought so it was not what I was expecting. The comment Cruz makes regarding lawlessness caught my attention as well. He makes the case for Obama's lawlessness then in the next breath states, if we have a president doing the very things he just stated Obama is doing, we no longer have a president! My response was, So what are you doing about it?! Has Cruz filed articles of impeachment? Has anyone filed articles of impeachment? There was a story on here a few days ago about a group of black republicans who had done so and where has that gone? Was it a fake story? Does anyone know who this group gave the supposed articles to and what that person has done with them? It would seem Cruz was right, the republicans stand for nothing. What about Rand? Wasn't he going to end the TSA? Oh, maybe Rand is trying so hard to get that done it is the reason why he has not done anything to stop Obama from usurping the Constitutional powers vested in the congress. Ya think?

Then a passing crazy thought occurred to me. Cruz did say if we had a lawless president (which he pointed out we have)we did not have a president. So would this mean there is no federal Government and thereby president to impeach? Would 100% of the powers (those retained by the states and the people as well as those GRANTED to the federal government) now reside with the states and people?

If anyone knows truthfulness of the articles of impeachment story and who's office it went to let us know.

Im not a Cruz fan, but

the above comment is goofy.

Do you think Ron Paul took his check in FRN's?
Or did he refuse his pay unless the FedGov paid him in silver and gold? Was Ron Paul "more of the same" as well ?

I'd rather have a bottle in front o' me than a frontal lobotomy

I guess upholding the Constitution is "goofy"

I thought this site was working to restore the Constitution??

Shall we pick and choose what parts of the Constitution we shall uphold? If we do that, they do that too.

Ron Paul was definitely not more of same and I do support his message but I still did not vote for him (or anyone else) because I can't find any man or woman who will abide by and uphold the law. I can only vote confidence in someone who is not willing to violate the Constitutional duty they voluntarily oblige themselves to.

It seems this crowd here wants to pick and choose what laws are acceptable to violate. If that's the path you choose then that is the path you will get.

Is there ANYONE who is actually willing to uphold the law to its defined precision? It seems not.

Our constitutional tender law is the best restraint on the size of government there is but I guess a mathematically guaranteed to fail debt note printed out of thin air and loaned never ending to the government with interest has nothing to do with an out of control tyrannical government and is totally constitutional. Hmmm...

DP showed it's true colors on this one. Wow.

The most powerful Law of Nature is Time. It is finite and we all will run out of it. Use this Law to your advantage, for it offers you infinite possibilities...

I got this

feeling inside me telling me Cruz is a liar.

If he became President, He would not abolish the IRS.

This is all talk.

You can say this about any republican

Even Ron Paul said it...but he never became president...and likely could not have abolished the IRS even as President.

I guess that feeling would let you think Ron was a liar for even suggesting it.



is the establishment front runner. He is bad news. The GOP would never do Cruz dirty at the conventions like they did to Ron.

In case anyone on here doesn't know this already,

Cruz's wife Heidi is a VP for Goldman Sachs (Federal Reserve Banking Cartel) and a globalist with the CFR. Cruz is a fraud.
