Romans 13:1-7 (New International Version)

Romans 13
Submission to the Authorities
 1Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. 2Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. 3For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and he will commend you. 4For he is God's servant to do you good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword for nothing. He is God's servant, an agent of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer. 5Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also because of conscience. 6This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God's servants, who give their full time to governing. 7Give everyone what you owe him: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.

Tea Baggers, if we are going to take the Bible literally, how 'bout we start with Romans 13:1-7? Didn't think so.

No one is saying do away with gov't, accountability, or taxes. All we are saying is BE FAIR ABOUT IT! That's why The Fairtax IS the answer!

Most baggers wouldn't understand it if they read it. A lot of them aren't too good at comprehending what they read.
