Death and Taxes

You may have seen the story floating around the past few months about a couple in PLainfied, New Hampshire who were holed up on their 103 acre property for tax evasion.  Word is they were ”successfully brought in” yesterday without incident, even though they vowed to have a violent conflict if they were to be taken by force.

Their commercial interests had already been seized by the authorities and now they face jail time and the probable loss of all they own.

This brings up a topic near and dear to my heart: Property Rights.

What?  You may ask.

I maintain that when the government can take your property at the point of a gun, then you don’t actually have any rights to it at all.  You are simply renting it at the pleasure of the government.  You her a lot about the “crackpots” who don’t believe in taxes, and most of them are just that: crackpots.  But I have done some reading in the past from some people who have very compelling arguments for why are current tax law is completely FUBAR. 

If you could prove that there was no legal way to fill out your 1040 tax form, would it be legal to refuse to do so?  What if, by simply signing the form you could be accused of breaking another law?

What if it could be reasonably shown that the current tax law is unconstitutional?

I maintain that it is entirely reasonable to assume both of these cases could well exist.  The penalty for breaking the tax law is confiscation and prison.  They take more money (fines and penalties) and put you in prison (if you don’t pay what they say you owe) and will finally take all you own to pay off this “debt”.  Can you fight it?  Do you have the resources to fight a set of laws so complex that even those who work for the IRS and are responsible to interpreting the rules can’t agree.  Ask them a question on a subtle point five times and chances are good you will get at least three variations of an answer.

Have you followed all of the tax laws?  To the letter?  To everyone’s interpretation?

The problem is, no one in power is motivated to change it.  The current law is set up in such a way that it enables them to use it for their own power gains.

The Fair Tax IS the answer.  Plain and simple, it fixes the problem.  No, it is not the panecea and John Linder is not omnicient, but it is the only thing that will restore power back to the people as well as finance the government.  Those who have studied it and understand it (which isn’t hard...you can do it in an hour) all agree that it is fair, simple and revolutionary.

Which is why career politicians are against it.  It is why they can’t argue the points of the plan, but resort instead to ad-hominem and strawman attacks instead.  If you are serious about personal property rights.  If you are serious about an out-of-control power structure in the IRS.  If you care about how the tax burdon is crippling this country, you need to do your homework and study this plan until you understand it.  When you do, you will be an ardent supporter.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
