Apostle Claver: Shut Down the IRS, NOW!
President Johnson did it.
President Nixon did it.
Perhaps President Bush, the Younger did it.
Now, President Obama has done it.
What have they done? They have used the Internal Revenue Service for intimidation and political retribution.
For years I have been personally referred to the United States Internal Revenue Service as America’s Gestapo. Of all the administrations and agencies of the United States government, the IRS is the most tyrannical arm and most egregious feeder of corruption. It is not a mere collector of revenues for a massively expanding federal government. The IRS is an effective thug force for the benefit of government largesse and the exploitive cronies of capitalism, the willing device for the plunder of the citizenry, and the pipeline for wealth redistribution.
Just the mention of the three letter “IRS” strikes fear into the heart of an American citizen. Why should any citizen fear any portion of the government in a healthy republic?
Now, with the revelation of this past weekend that the IRS was actively targeting conservative political groups for harassment, the greatest suspicions and fears of patriots have been realized. Amazingly, even liberal stalwarts have decried the actions of the IRS that seem to have been directed from some yet-to-be-revealed powerbroker in Washington, Devil City.
If I could wave a magic wand… If I could have the Lord Jesus answer a prayer instantaneously… My desire at this very moment is that all the Tea Party organizations across this dying nation come together, for once, under a united banner, theme, and issue, and call for the shutting down of the Internal Revenue Service and the repeal of the 16th Amendment!
I beg every conservative grassroots organization to call on their respective federal congressional representatives to work toward the repeal of the 16th Amendment, the immediate elimination of the IRS, and either returning to the original constitutional formula for remitting revenues to the federal government or the establishing of the Fair Tax, nationally.
From this point on – until the goal of eliminating the IRS is attained – the conservative grassroots activists throughout America should make this the #1 issue for election to all federal offices. Grassroots orgs should demand that all incumbents make shutting down the IRS (not “cleaning it up”) the #1 platform issue, and before any challenger can receive the endorsement of such orgs.
Shut down the IRS, now!
