In 1776, the colonists declared Independence from England in large part due to the many onerous Acts thrust upon them by Parliament including the Stamp Act in 1765 the Tea Act in 1773. The combination of these burdensome Acts on the colonies coupled with “Intolerable Acts” that severely limited the colonists Liberties, America rebelled. America won her liberty finally in 1783, only to see American’s freedoms put in a permanent state of peril with the successful progressive class warfare argument that resulted in the 16th Amendment in 1913. 

Politicians and government bureaucrats discovered, is they can manipulate the 71,000+ page tax code to reward their cronies and punish their enemies.

The legacy of the IRS is one of scandals, malfeasance, criminality, incompetence and terror – yet Americans, for the most part tolerate it. Why? The history of IRS abuses of common citizens is legendary, and the stories you will read in this book are chilling.

Why has the IRS become “weaponized”, spending $11 million on guns and ammo in the last 10 years?  Surely Patrick Henry, Thomas Jefferson and Samuel Adams would have never let such an abusive form of government exist in the United States. Why do we?
