Tax Protestors

I don't know how many of you are aware that there's some sort of show-down going on in New Hampshire (and no, I'm not talking about the annual biker swarm in Laconia that's going on this week.)

To start at the beginning, there's been and on-again, off-again, but usually ongoing battle over whether or not the income tax law was ever actually lawfully passed. The original intent of the founding fathers was to NOT have an income tax. Other taxes sure, but not an income tax. At the time the law was introduced, it wasn't fully ratified by all the states, or so it would seem, which would make it an invalid amendment to the constitution.

Now, lots of people have researched this, lots of lawyers, history buffs, accountants, former IRS agents, etc. And whenever anyone challenges the IRS to "show me the law" well, they never actually do. It seems like for all intents and purposes, the law seems to be "voluntary" yet enforced with the full force and power of the Federal government.

The people who object to paying the income tax don't mind paying tax per se. But they understand that the income tax that is collected goes right into the hands of the bankers that own the Federal Reserve. You see, when the Fed prints money, they sell it to us at it's value AND they charge interest, because, well, it's a loan. So, the tax protesters are basically protesting the fact that income tax is a huge scam to move money from the pockets of the people into the pockets of the bankers that run the Federal Reserve. (All the other taxes that are collected is enough to pay for the war and government costs, etc.)

To get a good background understanding on this subject, watch "America: From Freedom to Fascism". [Update: I had the movie's name wrong. Thanks Antony.] It's a movie by Aaron Russo and it talks about the Federal income tax and it's relationship with the Federal bank and interest payments.

Anyway, right now, there's a middle-aged couple in New Hampshire, the Browns, that has had enough and they're now holed up in their compound in New Hampshire, fending off what could become the next Waco. Here is their latest blog entry.

And here is some background on the story.
That should get you started.

Oh, and any attempt to link Ron Paul to the events in New Hampshire is just a media-contrived effort to make Ron Paul supporters to look like extreme radicals... even though protesting an illegal tax shouldn't be considered all that radical, if you really think about it.
