Shoe on the Other Foot

(originally launched into cyberspace on 01/18/2008)

Dear Subscriber,

This message needs a very prominent disclaimer. This is because the
federal control freaks and their hired thugs, who don't hesitate to
resort to overt oppression and violence themselves, are scared to
death that one day their victims will decide to do a little
"enforcement" of their own. You see, "government" folk can kick
down doors, taser people, drag people away, shoot people, imprison
people, steal property, and otherwise harass and intimidate the
peasantry as often as they like, but if you happen to make some
comment about the purpose of the Second Amendment, well then,
you're a TERRORIST! (The feds accusing someone of being a
"terrorist" is a little like Hitler calling someone an anti-
semite.) So I want to make this perfectly clear, so that even a
hired federal goon or a judge can understand it: I am NOT
advocating the following scenario. Far from it. I am pointing out
how irrational and thug-minded the feds' method of "debate" is, by
seeing what their rationale would look like in the other direction.
So, with that being said, imagine the following story appearing in
"Domestic Terrorist Weekly":

This week the Militia Department of Justice announced the arrest of
another in a long line of "freedom protestors" who have been
thumbing their noses at the American public, duping people into
handing over money they didn't owe. "This should send a strong
message to any other freedom protestors that their lawlessness will
not be tolerated," said Militia Attorney General Trooth D. Fender,
after the arrest of so-called "district judge" Powe R. Happee,
adding that "These scam artists are duping the public and
defrauding innocent people, and must be held accountable."

Last month Common Law Court Justice B. Dunn issued an injunction,
barring an extremist cult publication called "The New York Times"
from printing any more tax-related articles. "This abusive
extortion scheme is an affront to all law-abiding citizens," said
Judge Dunn in his ruling, before imposing a ten-year prison
sentence on David Cay Johnston, the leader and head guru of the
"freedom deniers" sect at the "New York Times" cult.

"If you tell Americans that they owe the tax, you can expect to be
forcibly silenced," said tax expert Ikan Reed. "Even the few judges
and IRS agents who have been found not guilty of fraud have had all
their money stolen and their houses burned to the ground, as a
warning to others who might be considering taking their advice."
Mr. Reed also added, "I mean, if we all owe the tax like they
claim, why do these guys keep getting captured and locked up?"

Commissioner of Liberty, Propper T. Wrights, said that he is asking
the Militia Congress for more powers to fight against the freedom
protestors, including the ability to impose more severe fines and
penalties against the promoters of the "61 fraud scheme"--a
frivolous argument in which proponents claim that Section 61 of the
Internal Revenue Code means that all income is taxable for all
Americans. "These frivolous scams must be stopped at all costs, to
protect the innocent," said Mr. Wrights.

- --------------------------------------

Aside from a little pointless "turnabout-is-fair-play" daydreaming,
what's the point here? It is this:

Would kidnapping a few dozen IRS bureaucrats prove that we don't
owe the tax? No. Would hanging a judge or two prove us right? No.
Would forcibly silencing opposing views show the validity of our
position? No. What proves someone right is EVIDENCE and LOGIC. Any
bozo should be able to understand that.

So why is it that the government, and its lapdog media, constantly
harp on how much the feds have HURT people who say "861"? (And
they're hoping to do the same to Wesley Snipes.) What kind of moron
thinks that THAT is proof that the 861 evidence is invalid? "Hey,
we locked some people up, stole lots of money and property, and
silenced a bunch of web sites. See? We told you they were wrong!"
Nice mentality.

Luckily, most of us outgrew this outlook on life at about age
three, when we realized that smacking our sibling in the head
didn't actually prove that we were in the right. Trouble is,
neither federal judges nor IRS and DOJ thugs have figured that out
yet. They still think locking people up, issuing injunctions and
swiping property is an adequate substitute for rational discussion.
Or rather, they think it's okay for THEM to use violence instead of
words; but if they even suspect for a second that WE might resort
to violence, they run crying to the nearest armed federal thug.
What a bunch of hypocritical, spineless cowards.
