What kind of organization kills and destroys its own citizens?

An organization out of control.  "The revenue officers of the IRS are among the most powerful people in government."  Why would US citizens allow an organization the caliber of Nazi SS?  They don't know how or don't believe they can stop it.  Though a legal entity, carrying out legal actions, the SS committed crimes against humanity.

The IRS can be stopped.  Abolishing the IRS is only a vote away.  Life doesn't have to be this way!  HR25 decriminalizes income.  Instead of turning everyone into a criminal (who hasn't made some sort of mistake?), under HR25, no one commits a crime for earning money.  What a concept!  The abolitionists of the 19th century eventually halted a giant, legal, heinous industry.  Are you an abolitionist of the 21st century?  Get involved!

Who are these people?  The system turns them into ravenous animals seeking blood.  You say, that's extreme.  Read what a former IRS agent has to say, then decide.  The Pavlov effect is when animals or people are rewarded for their behavior.  If bloodthirsty, rabid, destructive behavior is rewarded with promotions and incentives, the system creates an uber-agent, willing to do whatever it takes to extract everything possible from unsuspecting US citizens. 

Confessions of an IRS AGENT

On May 18, 1927, a part-time caretaker at a school in Bath, Michigan, killed 45 people, including 38 children, when he blew up a school and then killed himself, along with two first responders at the scene.  Another 58 people were wounded.  The 38 children were in grades three through six.  Kehoe had financial problems and was upset about having to pay taxes.  He had killed his own wife before blowing up his house.  [Paying a consumer tax eliminates the entrapment of "saving" money for taxes.]

One fellow called me who is working two jobs to make ends meet.  He is desperate to support his family.  He has trouble getting a job because so many jobs have gone overseas.  The IRS is auditing him on a trucking business that he tried to get started, but the business failed.  He has lost records and he is terrified of the IRS.  The agent he is supposed to go see audited his father a few years ago and terrorized him, the father's death was partly due to the stress he had during the audit. 

Another lady called who had received a levy on her bank account for over $20,000 for just one year.  She and her husband had followed the advice of a conman by the name of Edward Fitzsimmons.  She had torn up all the letters she received from the IRS.  She claimed she had even allowed sufficient withholding a work but since she destroyed the Notice of Deficiency, she had no idea how the IRS had come up with the bogus amount of tax liability.  When the IRS levied the bank account, her husband had committed suicide.

IRS erroneously demands $14K from 86 year old man, living in a retirement community.  The IRS withdraws the claim but the damage has been done.  The shock sends him into despondency and he loses the will to live. - anonymous

I worked on the southwest shore of Hudson's Bay in 1960, our company was working to prove the solar flares were connected to electronic problems.  A fellow came from CA to work with us as he needed to pay back a large sum the IRS claimed due to them because of a change the IRS made which was retroactive for 12 years.  We got a bonus for all time spent over six months and per diem while there.  He thought it was a way he could earn a lump sum to erase the tax problem.  One day he was beside himself in a rage he could hardly contain.  An IRS agent confiscated his entire NM bank account and checks were bouncing.  He phoned the agent and reminded him of their agreement to wait until the end of the year when he would make a large payment.  The agent said he found how much money he had in his account and decided he would get it while it was available.  Most folks aren't aware they can snoop on your bank account and even put the grab on it if they feel so inclined.  Intrusive?  Wow! anonymous
