The alligator at our door
Canada Free Press, by Doug Hagmann

Original Article

Posted By:snowcloud, 11/15/2012 2:55:31 PM

I met with my “intelligence insider” source yesterday, but the discussion was not about Benghazi or foreign affairs. He told me that he wanted to talk about something even more important right now, something that the federal government does not want us to talk about. Something that is shaking the “elite” to their very cores. Naturally, that certainly got my attention, as it should yours. We walked along a dirt pathway in the middle of nowhere, far away from prying eyes and ears, at least the ones we could see.

I have been saying for several years now that we the people need to join enough of us together and STOP paying taxes.

Without our tax dollars, the government has NO power!

I say if ten million of us did this, it would have a crippling effect, and hopefully a domino effect would ensue.

Sorry, but the author tries his best to drum up suspense with Cajun gator tales and Tom Clancy like secret discussions on the disproven theory of "voluntary income tax assessment".

Just don´t pay your taxes. Sure, right. Unless you live in a holler of ByGod West Virginia with all your assets in gold buried under your granpappys shack, there is no way you can escape taxation. Ask Wesley Snipes how the voluntary tax thingy works.

I have chosen to stop working and live off my savings the rest of my life. I cannot depend on secession or any solution to the monster we have bred in the swamps of our urban areas, so I am resisting by simply refusing to earn money and pay into the system. I have been preparing for this for decades and I´m ready to go the distance.

Heard the sermon last week 1 Peter 2: 13 - 17 about submission to government. Hard to choke down. We live in a republic where there is a path for debate, discussion and disagreement. I believe in the law of the land but not the lawlessness of the those governing. We have come so far from the intent of the Constitution. As freedom loving citizens we need to make our way back there. That would be a government I would submit to.

Do we really need a supreme court with judges that have such power? When laws get so complicated that we need the supremes to take over, it is time to stop making new laws. The government and all of its´ employees should be fired, congressmen and senators need a small office and one secretary. Think of the money we would save.

I noticed in the little alligator story that the alligator ended up with her last turkey and she was forced to call animal control who apparently chastised her for being stupid, reminded her who it was that created the monster and then just left it at that. Never says how the story ends? My guess she either kept feeding the gator or ended up being eaten by it?

Two cases in our neck of the woods, of people refusing to pay their taxes. One was in MA, the other in NH; both some time ago.

I will always remember driving by the house where the people barricaded their antique home, someone always had to stay behind lest the Feds gain entrance.

One day tanks arrived. The tax evaders surrendered. Virtually the same thing in NH, though didn´t last the number of years the MA case did.

Not paying taxes is stupid. You can´t fight the Federal government on tax laws. We need to elect people who will CHANGE the laws. We need to educate the people of the virtue of simple, flat taxes. AND AND, limited government.

Now to the parable. In 2009 was born a new critter, called the TEA (taxed enough already) Party. What happened to that critter? It grew, it traversed the country; it spawned lots of little ´uns.

And then, the Left unleashed all its vitriol and venom at it. The Party regulars on the Republican side, why they were frightened, too. Instead of engaging this critter, they poked and prodded it.

Even when in 2010 this TEA Party critter swept into Congress and State Houses all over the place, the Left continued poisoning the people´s minds.

Now when we look around, it´s hard to find even the crawl marks of the critter. Where´d it go?

The Left never, ever ever ever relents. The Left will feed that gator... the Left will prod and goad that gator to make it fierce and dangerous. That gator looks a lot like Occupy Wall Streeters, OWSers as i call them.

We must not give up.

I like the "Four Corners" concept of secession.
This would result in the Divided States of America.

It´s really the Four Corners of the U.S. plus Chicago and Wisconsin.
They´d be the "Divided States of America."

For years, various suggestions to split Cowabunga have had a certain appeal.
But other lib locales, such as Manhattan, need to go as well.

The Divided States would be --
Coastal California, the liberal portions of the Left Coast...
Puget Sound area (with Hawaii, if desired)...
South Florida, liberal portions...
The Northeast, from Virginia suburbs of D.C. up to Maine, including Philadelphia, etc...
Plus, an interior area...
Great Lakes areas of Chicago and liberal Wisconsin...

The United States would remain in the Heartland... Red States and Alaska included...

The Four Corners can pursue their liberal nonsense at will...
and pay the consequences without any access to our money.

Heartland USA of the Red States & Alaska will carry on the original constitutional agenda we all love.

We Red Staters will thus kick the drunks, drug addicts and household disrupters out.
And it´s about time.
Divorce is overdue. Family breakup with a positive result.
After all... Enabling never works longterm.

This will work... for you and me.
Think about it.
We could do it... and EVERYONE would benefit and feel better.

Here is the problem. I posted this several days ago. After 2010 the libs woke up to the damage wrought by the Tea Party. They said to themselves it wasn´t going to happen again. We won this election folks. Do you hear me---we won this election. But they stole it!!! This election was stolen. Allen West is proof of it, and he is trying to fight it, but do you read of it??? No--you hardly read of it on the Internet. 19 voting areas in Philly had NO votes for Romney. Do you believe that?? Other cities, such as Cleveland had the same situation. It´s over.

I´m with #6. Fifteen years ago I was making $160K/year and paying astronomical taxes. I decided to shift my lifestyle to what I could afford on my savings and move out of a state that collects income taxes in addition to the feds. I found I could live well and be happy on $24K/year. Taxes? I never paid more than $1500 to the feds. Never been happier.

If enough high income taxpayers take a sabbatical for three or four years, economize and exercise some discipline it will knock the feds to their knees. Just makes sure you move to some rural area before the riots start.

#16 many high-income people make their money by taking risks, not by working, per se. Those people don´´t have to leave their jobs or even take sabbatical from anything, they just have to pull in their horns, and that is exactly what they will do given the increased taxes.

When I take a loss in the markets, I bear the loss entirely, myself. I can carry the loss forward to when I make a gain, but I then must take risks to make that gain.

When I make a gain from risks, the government shares heftily in my gains. If they take any more, I am unwilling to take any more risks.

Nature will run its course and wealthy investors will stop taking risks given the reduced rewards they will see.

I have liquidated almost all my stocks because the risks are just not worth the rewards (and because I have zero confidence in an Obama-lead ecomony).

Encouraging people not to pay their federal (or state) income taxes is stupid beyond belief. Try being on the other side of the table from IRS. They hold all the cards and have the power to take everything you have and everything you will make in the future. Or at least until the tax and interest and penalties are paid. The process will destroy every area of your life. It is not worth the cost.

All this big talking is nothing but talk. Laws can be changed. But what really needs changing is the cowardly way the Congress grants to the the treasury department the authority to make the rules.

It´s like passing a local ordinance on speeding or improper parking. Turn it over to the police department (IRS) to make up the rules and decide which ones they will enforce. Then give them the authority to seize all you own and everything you will make in the future. Doesn´t make sense, does it?

The words Jerusalem Post columnist Caroline Glick used to answer Barack Hussein Obama’s threats that he would warn Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that time is running out for Israel to reach a peace agreement with the Palestinians: “I think Obama needs to realize that he is not scaring us” are the very words Obama victims everywhere need to hurl back at him. “He says, beware and we say, ‘Bring it on.

The forced Parliamentary impeachment of Ukrainian President Victor Yanukovych just cancelled out President Barack Obama’s puny pen and telephone. Russian President Vladimir Putin was Yankovych’s pen and telephone, but with the entire world watching, the prime minister, who only three months ago made a deal in favor of the Russians over the European Union, has hightailed it for safer ground by abandoning the battle field. “Parliament on Feb. 22 voted overwhelmingly to impeach embattled Ukrainian President Victor Yanukovych. Lawmakers applauded as the votes came in—328 in all—to oust the president. Following the vote, parliamentarian(s) stood and sang the national anthem.”

Conservatives and liberty lovers pretty much take it for granted that liberal judges don’t know anything about the Constitution. That much seems obvious from the consistently ridiculous decisions made by left-wingers on the bench at all levels. Yet, it is somewhat jarring to come across a liberal judge who is so un-knowledgeable, so uneducated, so thoroughly ignorant of the foundations upon which this country was built that she literally does not know what the Constitution actually says, “A federal judge confused the Declaration of Independence with the Constitution Thursday night in a court ruling which overturned Virginia’s ban on same-sex marriages. “In

Leading a hostile and openly anti-American administration, whose trademark is dropping a shock a day, he uses the technology of social media to force his will not only on a captured-by-Marxists America, but on what was up to his 2008 election, the Free World.

Five years into the Obama regime, Michelle came out of the White House as the activist she’s always been to instruct high school students that they are entitled to “free” government handouts. “Don’t leave money on the table,” she said.

We can probably get a good sense of it by considering the account of President Bush’s conversations with Putin set forth by Peter Baker in his excellent book about the Bush presidency, Days of Fire.

FOR FIVE YEARS, President Obama has led a foreign policy based more on how he thinks the world should operate than on reality. It was a world in which “the tide of war is receding” and the United States could, without much risk, radically reduce the size of its armed forces. Other leaders, in this vision, would behave rationally and in the interest of their people and the world. Invasions, brute force, great-power games and shifting alliances — these were things of the past. Secretary of State John F. Kerry displayed this mindset on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday when he
