They donít owe these disgust right-wing bastards anything; it is their duty to target anti-American groups.
When white Tea Party members start killing thousands of Americans every year like the gangsta thugs then maybe the IRS can start doing that. The IRS really can't do that to the gangstas, drug dealing and drive-bys are not real tax paying occupations.

We don't know the extent of this corruption yet, but certainly this attack on Americans and the Constitution must be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Only by naming a SPECIAL PROSECUTOR can justice be done.

Democrats stink like the back of a trash truck. I want more than an apology. I want them punished. Harshly punished. They help put Barack Benghazi back in power and they deserve to be punished. Severely.
Let's start with you. By being part of the repulsive Republicans, making them unacceptable to mainstream America, YOU put Obama back in power. Thank you.

Im proud of the fact I support freedom of Religion and Freedom of speech for even for those i disagree with.
Klansmen, communist , Flag burners, Muslin extremist may say things I dont agree with, but I will defend their right to free speech and it would be wrong and illegal for the IRS to target them for using their constitutional rights
As Voltaire stated, I may not agree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.
Or as Liberal say I may not agree with what you say, and will do my best to censor you.
