    It seems like as the days go by, our elected officials are wanting to put more and more power into the office of the IRS. Between the dems and the unholy mess that is Obamacare and the house republicans with MAP21, both parties are going in that direction. I'm left wondering if there's any way left for us to get the boot off of our necks or if we're just screwed.

    ETA: You'd think that the republicans wouldn't touch that with a 10ft pole and would make the IRS a major issue of the fall campaign. Just about every American knows who they are, what they do, and how they can make your life miserable.

    With all due respect, this is the thinking that keeps the IRS alive. The Republicans don't want to eliminate it, or even shrink it. They never have. Nevertheless, the myth that they stand for smaller government persists, and they use that to stay in power.

    Here's the truth of the matter: To the Republicans (and Democrats) you are nobody. You're nothing but tax livestock, intended to be corralled under more laws than any other country on Earth, and milked for your money. Unless you contribute enormous sums of money to them personally, they don't care anything about you, your life, or how the government interferes with your hopes and dreams.

    Recognize that, and be liberated.
