Voice from the Commonwealth Commentary, World Views and Occasional Rants from a small 'l' libertarian in Massachussetts
"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

If there was ever proof that we need to abolish the IRS and institute a flat income tax (and I am nowhere near the top one 1%) it is this. If the IRS bureuacracy itself does not even know the tax laws or is knowingly violating them and it is costing us millions or possibly billions of the dollars that the government takes from us every week, the only way to insure that there is no abuse is to make it so that there is no way to abuse the system. The Laffer Curve has proven itself in Russia and other countires that have moved to a flat tax. If we can get over the scare tactics of claiming that it just enriches the rich and look at the true value of a flat tax, we can move into a prosperity and increase in real tax revenue that would allow our nation to maintain the economic advantages that have been 225 years in the making.
