  1. the IRS and this pack of out of control politicians are dectroying our great country, income taxes are making it more and more impossible for people to take care of therir families, how long will law abiding citizens allow this rapeing and pillaging to go on BEFORE we finally say no more? The time to stand up to the IRS is NOW, I refuse to be intimidated into sending money to a corrupt govenment agency that sends money to our enemies while me and my family struggle to keep food on the table. Is there anybody else ready to take a stand?
