Like I said when this “861” nonsense first came to my attention:
What you, Rose, Schiff, and the rest of the folks digging around in the law books don’t realize is that you’re acting like fucking focus groups for FedGov.
You’re all running around with your writs and affidavits and whatnot, showing them where to slam the next wall down in your path.
The evil and destruction of the income tax are apparent to everyone that cares to look, but no one’s going to mind because they all get “free” shit too, and they aren’t about to let their neighbors get away without paying if they can’t.
Which they can’t, all this fringe-flag crap is a quick ticket to the slammer as a political prisoner. If that’s what you want, fine, but realize up-front that rational ignorance is going to keep the vast majority of the populance from giving a damn about you and your tenner.
Seriously: if you want to evade taxes, evade them. Don’t show up on the radar. Double-don’t go around peddling schemes and books purporting to show how to “legally” avoid paying taxes.
First rule of tangling with something a million times bigger than you: don’t let it know you exist.
Second rule: don’t poke it in the eyball with a sharp stick.
Except, oops, I was right.
The government isn’t going to dismantle itself any time soon, nor are the pitiful voting masses going to suddenly discover untapped reserves of outrage at your self-immolation.
