Left wing loonies had a cow when Nixon had a so-called enemies list. Now the IRS targets any conservative group and what do you get?

Crickets.

But now Obama is coming after them as well. The Associated Press, a left leaning news gathering organization had at least 20 telephone lines tapped by secret government operatives from the Dept. of Justice. Just in case you have forgotten, the government is run by a guy named Obama and his underling is Eric Holder who runs Justice. YOUR government you liberals, your government is spying on you now.

How ya' like them apples?

The IRS needs to be abolished. Get rid of them. They are going to be in charge of enforcing obamacare. They are going to have everyones medical records. You trust them? We need to go to a flat tax system and get rid of the IRS. A new leader is not going to fix the problem.

Darn Them for investigating Political Organizations applying for non-profit 501(c)4 "Social Welfare" Organizations.

Why Social Welfare organizations and not political ones you may ask? Because Political organizations require disclosing donors and Social Welfare do not.

You do understand that the IRS cannot judge or tell any group who or who they cannot protest or hold a certain view for or against, right? That is in violation of the 1st amendment of freedom of speech. The IRS also violated other parts of the 1st amendment like the right of the people to assemble, and the right to petition the government by delaying, denying, and or restricting what those groups could or could not do.

The IRS was using it's overwhelming authority as a squelch to the freedom's you and I take for granted every single day.

It does not matter if they were pro-small government or big-government types, the IRS is not the arbiter of the rights of the U.S. Constitution. If they were doing their jobs correctly, and within the bounds of the the Constitution of the United States, it would have said no to those orders from the Oval Office.

You should shudder at the thought of your government using it's power to squelch free speech. If you cannot understand that then you my friend, are doomed.

What he doesn't understand Professor, is that the IRS used it's power to selectively target certain people and groups who opposed this administration's policies. It used personal information to destroy those people. It provided opposition parties that personal information so they may use it to discredit them or dampen their ability to do business.

Now the IRS is basically in charge of obamacare. The IRS is collecting all of our personal information into a national database. For exactly what reason(s) I don't know fully. The consequences could be that people or groups who oppose this administration could be denied health care solely because of their opposition to the policies of the current president.

The government of the United States should not be using personal information or it's agencies to stifle the liberties of the People.

This is something akin to religion. The left says we should have separation of church and state. Okay. Fine. Then we need to have separation in government as well. Whether you believe in big government or believe in limited government, they both receive NO preferential treatment.

Your absolutely correct. I thought of that right away and posted that we now have to abolish the IRS. New leadership is not a fix. First it's organizations, then it's me and you posting on topix. Very serious situation here. You know these orders came down from Obama. Mark Levin was the one that got the whistle blowers on this to come forward. He is a constitutional attorney and said he knew about this since November of 2011. It took him this long to put it all together. He signed the complaint and talked with the Feds for hours disclosing this entire scandal and violation of the constitution. Obama claims he just heard about this last Friday. What a liar. I hope this communist Alinsky want to be gets implicated and indicted.

I agree that the IRS has no right to infringe on the 1st amendment or any other.

They do have the obligation, in fact, its there only job, to make sure tax law is enforced. Investigating those applying for non-profit status are categorized correctly under the law is something I am sure we both can agree is within the scope of the IRS.

The Obama administration is being weakened as all second term Presidents are in their final four years. They did it to Nixon, Reagan,Carter, W. Bush and now Obama. These guys don't run again and the elite want to make sure they stay in line. Whether the attacks are legit doesn't even matter. They American public should just watch pro wrestling because the political process is beyond their pay grade.
