Voluntarily Not Paying Taxes


#1

Operation: Eat a Dick, MF!

Don't pay your taxes. If you have them withdrawn automatically via W4 just increase it to the maximum deduction. Still file on April 15 but insist that you are "voluntarily" deciding not to pay.

I estimate we only need about 10% of the taxpaying public to actually go along with it to send a message.

Ok thread title change...fair enough

Still, the name of the game is OPERATION: Eat a Dick, MF!


#3

Most people don;t pay their taxes. Their taxes are "taken" for convenience, you know. Then at the end of the year we all figure out if they were right.


#4

I already don't pay taxes!

(Beowolf is a work-study student :D)

Yes, I know there are many people that have automatic withholdings taken from theit paycheck; hence, I mentioned changing the payroll deduction amount.

It should be obvious that if you don't pay taxes because you are poor you don't get to play this game.

Like I said. It doesn't take that many people to go along with it to attract attention.

Big Brother answers to us and not the other way around.

Good luck with that.

Maybe you'll be offered a cabinet position for dodging those taxes!


#7

How did you know that was my plan all along?

muahahaha!

Seriously though, do you think if enough people went along with it it would send a message?

It has already been shown that taxes are not necessary since Uncle Sam has the printing press.

I'll write to you in prison...

Maybe it'll play out like the last one.

BOSTON, April 20 - National Guard units seeking to confiscate a cache of recently banned assault weapons were ambushed on April 19th by elements of a para-military extremist faction. Military and law enforcement sources estimated that 72 were killed and more than 20 injured before government forces were compelled to withdraw.

Speaking after the clash, Massachusetts Governor Thomas Gage declared that the extremist faction, which was made up of local citizens, has links to the radical right-wing tax protest movement. Gage blamed the extremists for recent incidents of vandalism directed against internal revenue offices.

The governor, who described the group's organizers as "criminals," issued an executive order authorizing the summary arrest of any individual who has interfered with the government's efforts to secure law and order.

The military raid on the extremist arsenal followed wide-spread refusal by the local citizenry to turn over recently outlawed assault weapons. Gage issued a ban on military-style assault weapons and ammunition earlier in the week.

This decision followed a meeting in early April between government and military leaders at which the governor authorized the forcible confiscation of illegal arms. One government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, pointed out that "none of these people would have been killed had the extremists obeyed the law and turned their weapons over voluntarily."

"Government troops initially succeeded in confiscating a large supply of outlawed weapons and ammunition. However, troops attempting to seize arms and ammunition in Lexington met with resistance from heavily-armed extremists who had been tipped off regarding the government's plans.

During a tense standoff in Lexington's town park, National Guard Colonel Francis Smith, commander of the government operation, ordered the armed group to surrender and return to their homes. The impasse was broken by a single shot, which was reportedly fired by one of the right-wing extremists. Eight civilians were killed in the ensuing exchange.

Ironically, the local citizenry blamed government forces rather than the extremists for the civilian deaths.

Before order could be restored, armed citizens from surrounding areas had descended upon the guard units. Colonel Smith, finding his forces overmatched by the armed mob, ordered a retreat.

Governor Gage has called upon citizens to support the state/national joint task force in its effort to restore law and order. The governor has also demanded the surrender of those responsible for planning and leading the attack against the government troops.

Samuel Adams, Paul Revere, and John Hancock, who have been identified as "ringleaders" of the extremist faction, remain at large.

The tax idea is a nice thought, but if you aren't with in 10% of your tax liability they can and will slam you with penalties.


#12

Nice


#13

I hope they catch them soon. We don't need guys like this on the streets. Probably hopped up on the PCP, too.


#14

its time for a peaceful revolution...


#15

That's an oxymoron. To quote Fidel Castro (not my favorite person, but one who oughtta know about such things), "a revolution is not a bed of roses. A revolution is a struggle to the death between the future and the past."


#16

Could you imagine if each governor activated their guard units and converged on DC? Wouldn't be to hard to reclaim states rights then would it?


#17

The funniest part of this little irony is that bush would have called them "terrorists" and sent them to Gitmo forever with no charges or trial, and the same bunch of cheerleaders on this board would have been ecstatic about it and would find a way to defend dickbushco as "patriots".

You can't make this shit up, but gotta love it anyway.


#18

I do wonder what the gentlemen above would've done with terrorists.


#19

keep masturbating in that bunker junior.

Isn't the US military sworn to uphold the constitution from all enemies foriegn and domestic?
