Will the I.R.S. Kill this Man?
This issue isn't
exactly Second Amendment related, but I sense that most folks who visit this
site will have some interest in the topic. [KABA
I've received several e-mails over the past few weeks containing text akin to
that I've copied below. Now I will say that I don't know much about Bob Schulz,
and I don't know if he will actually starve himself to death in protest of the
IRS refusal to cite the source of their authority to take away a quarter to half
of everything we earn. But I have to give him credit for pushing for straight
answers from a Federal government that we can all agree has taken far too much,
returned too little and been less than honest with the citizenry.
With this in
mind, I encourage you to read about Schulz, and perhaps spend a few minutes to
do as he asks. Write a couple emails. Phone the comment lines. And most
importantly, ask the press why they aren't covering a story about a man who is
already a week into a hunger strike whose chief demand is an accounting from the
There was a time
when our government was "of the People, by the People, for the
People", when a man might ask a question of his government and expect an
answer. I think Bob Schulz is due an answer. If you concur, make the phone call.
Write the e-mail. Send a fax. Tell the government you would like Bob Schulz to
get an answer. And while they're at it, you'd like an answer too.

On Sunday, July
Schulz, a leading advocate for lawful government for over twenty years,
will be in Washington, D.C., fasting. He will fast either until he dies or
until the IRS agrees to send experts to a public forum to refute evidence of
researchers from the Tax Honesty Movement as to their allegations of the
unconstitutionality of the federal income tax system, and its unlawful
enforcement. To date, the IRS has abdicated its duty to the People of this
nation by refusing to respond to any of this evidence - all of which is based
on independently-verifiable historical and legal research and empirical data.
CONTACT PRESIDENT BUSH:
1. PHONE THE
PRESIDENT. He has a "Comment Line", which tells citizens
"your call is important to the President", and eventually connects
you to a real person. The phone number is (202) 395-3000.
2. WRITE THE
PRESIDENT. His fax number is: (202) 456-2461. His mailing address is: The
White House, Washington, DC 20500.
3. E-MAIL THE
PRESIDENT. His e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is definitely NOT the best way to reach him, but it should be included
as part of an overall strategy of covering all bases.

NOTE: We must remember that the Boston Tea Party -- and, many will
agree, a primary reason to revolt from the Brits in the 1700's -- was directly
tied to overtaxation. Though we do not wish to open the publishing
floodgates to every tax-related article ever written, we will publish insightful
taxation articles and alerts from time to time, and we just opened a Taxation
Archive with the publication of this report. Our archive submission form
