Government intimidation - video of congressional testimony



Anyone want to defend what the government did to this person?

Limiting political speech by non-profit organizations.

An interesting concept, since non-profit organizations are tax-exempt, correct?

Taxation, representation...




P.S., this woman's situation is not the issue at hand in her presentation. That was fluff. I agree she was wronged and should sue the **** outta 'em, but that wasn't the subject of the presentation.

She was campaigning against a piece of legislation.

Daniel Webster said, "The power to tax is the power to destroy."


I revise that to say, "The power to tax is the power to control." The opposite is also true, "The power not to tax is also the power to control."
