Should we "End the IRS Before It Ends Us"? Can you find one reason not to end the IRS?


The book, End the IRS Before It Ends Us, is not about taxation. It is about liberty. Grover Norquist, the head of Americans for Tax Reform, shows how the IRS taxes not only our incomes but our freedoms as well. He explains how a core group of leftists have taken over the agency and made it a modified Robin Hood raiding party, stealing from the rich....but giving the proceeds to make government -- not the poor -- richer. Is he right? Or is he just a right wing extremist? If we were to end the IRS what should it be replaced with?

    I live in Texas. We have no state income tax. Instead, we pay higher property taxes (except on our primary residence) and sales taxes. It works, and we don't have to fill out a bunch of forms, or worry about random revenge audits.

    Be careful what you wish for or the IRS will think we are giving them permission to just help themselves to our checking and savings accounts anytime they want to.

    Oh wait, they can already do this can't they?

    Well that IS a reasoned conclusion! However I don't wonder why"a left wing commie socialist bleeding heart liberal"mentions nothing about the IRS targeting scandal, the supposedly apolitical IRS being used to exact partisan political harassment.

    GM few are as learned and insightful as you are on political issues! Well said, now if you could only use that sort of expertise when it comes to the spiritual. ;-)

    We need a radically simplified tax code & a currency that is beyond manipulation of the Federal Reserve. No benefits for legislators to confer on cronies. Fed Res could not inflate away the sins of government at the expense of the taxpayers.
