Power Abused by IRS: And, Who Let It Happen?

Updated on September 10, 2015

Abuse of Power in United States Against the People

Was IRS right or wrong? Was this a new activity of the IRS or has it been done since the beginning of the IRS? Is this abuse of the American people? Are we all at risk at the hands of the IRS Tax system?

When did they start targeting the American people?I am thinking it was probably from the beginning of taxes; because power in the hands of the unsavory without a check and balance system becomes a dictator against the American people.

Congress needs to get tougher and do a better job. Are Congress members even reporting to work or just having a good old time at the American people's expense?

Terminate everyone who had a hand in this misuse of power of those who enjoyed putting fear into each honest American who filed tax payments or refunds.

Remember when we the people hear about misuse of power---you can bet it is because it has not just reared its ugly head---it has been alive and well for a long time. And was just well covered up and can we guess by what agency?

Keep your ears open and do your research---and see what you find.

Update--December 11, 2013 Re: IRS

Is the IRS stonewalling when asked to produce certain documents? This investigation has gone on for too long in order to come to a conclusion. It is beginning to appear we Americans are having smoke blown in our faces or other places.

When any government agency operates as if they are above the laws of our country---then sooner or later it’s brought to the front and center for all to see.

Stop giving so much time to the IRS to comply with the committee’ s request because they should have all documents on hand as any agency does. This agency needs an audit that is if there is anyone who can do it---and bring the guilty parties to justice.

Is the Second American Revolution Near?

When “We The People” sit back and do nothing, and let the people we have elected to Congress, become our Masters, in lieu of our Representatives; then we are in deep trouble.

Because we have become their slaves, by paying our taxes, as they reap the benefits, and Americans go to bed hungry in the Land of the Brave and the Free.

Congress should contribute to Social Security like all Americans; then the Laws they so freely make would apply to them also. Are they not Americans, shouldn't they live by the same codes and laws?

Congress must be limited to two terms only, not make a career out it. They should not receive a retirement from the tax payers; because they should have their own 401K Plan. Just like most Americans.

Congress should make American Companies hire Americans, and not send American jobs to other countries, “No Outsourcing of American Jobs.” This is why we have Massive Unemployment in our Country, and look to the ones who let it become this way.

Congress should not vote to send other countries our money. If charity makes them feel good, then “Charity Should Begin at Home in America.”

Congress should have to get their Medical Insurance from the same Insurance Companies we do, not benefit from the sweat of our brows.

Congress should make English our official language, and all who live in America should speak it. Any other language would be secondary.

Congress should make sure of security and protection of our boarders; and limit the number of people from other countries coming in while we are under threats from Terrorist.

Congress should vote out the Electoral Vote, and let “We The People” vote for our President, and let our true votes count by putting the vote back into the hands of Americans to control our own destiny.

Congress should not give one cent, not one penny to “Illegal Aliens.” A nd when did this start anyway? Americans did not vote for this.

Do we have two parties that have become “Dictators?”

Are we just going to become “Spectators” and let Congress ruin our country. Congress needs to show they are true Americans and they are working for the people.

Are the biggest Traitors of our country holding elective offices? How could we as Americans sit by with our thumbs in our mouths, and let others whom we elected and trusted do what we thought was best for us, has proven to surely be our demise.

Congress should never agree to enter another war unless it is on American soil. And Congress should not try to police the world, nor, should they give our money to any other country.

Congress needs to rebuild America, keep our businesses at home, and their minds on their jobs, and serve with the people of the USA, and not place themselves above us; but be equal in every way.

I am not clear on the “Tea Party Association” and exactly what it stands for, but if stands for what I believe in, then I might consider being a member. However, I will surely do more research on the matter.

Now, Americans if you just sit back and do nothing, our Ancestors will roll over in their graves, and we will all pay for our neglect now.

And if you “Procrastinators” sit back and do nothing, you will get what you deserve, and it will be a poor third world country, with long food lines, with no food. Do your children, and grandchildren deserve this?

I am a very positive person, but now I am becoming scared at the stupidity of our Government, and lack thereof any show of strength from the ones sworn to secure our “Life, Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness.”

Our country is still struggling for more jobs, and more "Made in American" factories and plants. The power players of our country are still giving us the lip service and trying to divert our attention away from the big issues of "We the People" to the coming election of the President.

If it is left to the grit of the Americans---we will prevail---full speed ahead. If you are not for us---then get out of our way. We are the citizens of the United States of American, mothers, fathers, children, grandparents, aunts, uncles and all in between. We are the lifeblood of this nation and are veins are full---we are ready and able to win back the American Dream.

We are the descendants of our forefathers---the pioneers of this great nation and we will win this battle of recovery for our children and grandchildren.


Does Congress get a good report card from you?

    Hi Ken L.

    I like it when a Hubber tells exactly what they think about any subject. And I would love to read a hub by you on this subject with more input.

    Thank you for the visit and your comment. You have made some very good points---and I wish you would write a hub about it.

    What I believe is who to blame ? Well it is we the people are who to blame , we dont seem to be miserable enough at the present time but it doe`s seem that we are getting closer to getting mad enough to do something , like being aware of who is running for office and what they stand for ( themselves or America ) . Why in Gods name did all of you who voted for obama , not demand to see his birth certificate , and why no college transcripts ? I for one will vote for my choice not the 2 choices the bankers choose , Ron Paul has been ignored and news blaced out and votes not counted in the primaries and I will vote Ron Paul no matter what every one thinks . He at least wants to end all of the U.S. foreign occupation and bring our people home where they can protect Americans here in our own country . Ron Paul wants to END the fed damn it our congress is suppose to be the ones who print our money ,,, wake up people a vote for romney is a vote for obama .

    Thank you for stopping by and reading my hub. I try to stay away from writing articles like this one--because it make me angry all over again. Well, our ancestors have surely turned over in their graves, from watching what they fought for--- going slowing down the drain thanks to our Leaders.

    Wow you are really fired up and rightly so. These elected officials are supposed to be there to serve you not line their own pockets.

    More power to you and kick these useless buggers to the curb.

    Well written, passionate and heartfelt appeal to all Americans to stand up and be counted.

    You Are The People.

    The revolution has already begun...It's the Ron Paul revolution...I urge you to read about him and join ranks to break this false left-right paradim. The Constitution is the only thing that can stop this third world hell we are desending into.

    Excellent hub!

    Your paragraph, "I am not clear on the “Tea Party Association” and exactly what it stands for, but if stands for what I believe in, then I might consider being a member. However, I will surely do more research on the matter."

    What you just talked about is the basis of the Tea Party. You are in line with what the Tea Party is saying. I encourage you to check the Tea Party out and become a member. I think that you will see that they are asking for the same things you are.

    Excellent hub. I totally concur with you a milnillion percent. For instance, a mayor is supposed to run for two terms only. However, you know what happened in my great city, New York, Mr. Bloomberg decided to run for a third term and won. Yes, monies does exchange hands. It is politics as usual and we the people suffer as a result. We must wake up and take back our country.
