Can someone, anyone, PLEASE

Can someone, anyone, PLEASE point to ANYWHERE where Obama or anyone from his administration threatened anyone with prison time?

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

I am not sure you know this,

I am not sure you know this, but this video is from 2009 and the Law didn't get signed into law until March 2010. This is also before the Supreme Court decision deeming it a tax. The law specifically prohibits collection of any fine and also jail time.

Yes, I agree, at that time they were inferring jail time to some extent, but that never came into fruition.

My question obviously was referring to after the law had been passed and came into effect.

Oh, so if I don't pay

my "tax", then I won't go to jail? Since when?

Have you read it?"‘‘(2)

Have you read it?

US Code Title 26, §5000A(g)(2)

"‘(2) SPECIAL RULES.—Notwithstanding any other provision of law—

‘‘(A) WAIVER OF CRIMINAL PENALTIES.—In the case of any failure by a taxpayer to timely pay any penalty imposed by this section, such taxpayer shall not be subject to any criminal prosecution or penalty with respect to such failure.

‘‘(B) LIMITATIONS ON LIENS AND LEVIES.—The Secretary shall not— ‘‘(i) file notice of lien with respect to any property of a taxpayer by reason of any failure to pay the penalty imposed by this section, or
‘‘(ii) levy on any such property with respect to such failure.’’

What do you think that means??? Stop voting me down before you know what you are talking about.

You do understand that

the government cannot allow people to disregard their decrees, right?

What are you talking about

What are you talking about and why are you denying the facts?

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

I am talking about your naivite'

What happens when millions discover that they can adjust their withholding and avoid paying the penalty? What happens when that tax "penalty", with interest, totals in the billions? Do you honestly think the federal government is going to leave that debt on the books? They audited me over a $500 charitable donations claim. Don't you think they will do the same or worse over this?

If you would feel better about it, I would be happy to provide a long list of scenarios where the federal government changed their minds about what was legal or not, after they gave themselves the authority to do so. But you're probably right. We shouldn't worry about it.

What if aliens came down and

What if aliens came down and took all our money and made Kermit the Frog king., And what if they all put us in camps and used us as slaves...

I am dealing with what is happening now. Or I can listen to kooks who have predicted we all be enslaved by the year 2000. That we all be stamped with the number of the beast 10 years ago... those were all what if...

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

If you could show evidence of

that happening MANY times in the past, then yes, your analogy would be accurate. Instead, you call me a kook and dismiss what I am saying. Nice.

I'm not going to lose sleep over this. You obviously are very concerned about protecting the reputation of the State, so go right ahead with your "they won't do it because they said they wouldn't" mantra. I hope it works out for you and protects you like a magical talisman. Myself, I will deal with reality, based on what the government has ACTUALLY DONE repeatedly.

It's too bad unwitting propagandists like you exist, trying to convince yourself by attempting to convince others that your government won't do everything in their power to make you comply.

Thats actually a very good

Thats actually a very good point.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.
