In Obama’s America all the IRS needs to take all your money, freeze your accounts, and arrest you is their opinion that your assets might be suspicious. No warrants are needed, no proof of any actual crime is required. All the IRS needs is its say so and your life can be turned upside down.
A story in The New York Times reports on how the abusive, overly powerful IRS destroys lives with impunity. One woman who runs a small restaurant had all her assets stolen by the IRS and never returned even though she has never been charged with any violations of the tax code or breaking any laws.
And this woman will not likely get her money back because the forfeitures are not held until the government finally figures out if there is any guilt involved, either. No, that money is immediately doled out to the various law enforcement agencies involved in the theft and is immediately spent.
The report also notes that the IRS took this extreme action 639 times just in 2012 alone yet only prosecuted 20 percent of those cases.
What was the IRS reply to the Times?
On Thursday, in response to questions from The New York Times, the I.R.S. announced that it would curtail the practice, focusing instead on cases where the money is believed to have been acquired illegally or seizure is deemed justified by “exceptional circumstances.”
This is a flat out admission that the agency knew full well that it was acting illicitly. After all, if the IRS thought it was acting properly it would never have made this promise to curtail the practice.
This is no longer the America where you are innocent until proven guilty. The Bill of Rights has been eliminated. We no longer live in a nation where law enforcement must have an actual case that then must be presented to a judge in order to get a warrant to proceed. We live in Obama’s America where you are all presumed guilty, where your assets are assumed to belong to Obama’s government, and if taken will never be returned whether you are actually guilty of anything or not.
Remember, America: “you didn’t build that.” Everything belongs to Obama. And you’d best just shut up and accept it.
Or vote for small government Republicans and turn this tide!
In any case, the simple fact of the matter is that Obama’s IRS is a domestic terror outfit.
