Seeds of truth

The Seed of Truth Has Been Sown. Casey Lee Cobb | Öþêñ ¥ðµr MïñЧ È¥ê | February 7, 2008 For over ten years Ed and Elaine Brown have asked the IRS over and over again, what law makes them liable for the income tax? In response to their repeated question on the issue instead of simply answering the Browns. The IRS in collusion with government decided to try and ¡!force-them-to-voluntarily-comply¡! with the criminal activities of the IRS; this resulted in a standoff that lasted many months. Fortunately no one was killed in the standoff, but Ed and Elaine Brown were eventually arrested by Federal agents who pretended to be supporters. Ed and Elaine Brown are now political prisoners as well are four supporters (the freedom four) whom courageously stood with them during the standoff. The Government still refuses to answer the people’s questions on the legality of the income tax, and expects you to pay the tax at the barrel of a gun, without revealing a law that makes you liable to pay. Because of the courageous example of people like Ed and Elaine Brown, many people all across America and the world have unanimously decided to peacefully resist the unlawful activities perpetuated by their governments. Irwin Schiff one of the founders of the Truth in Taxation movement and current political prisoner once said that there are two types of people that pay the income tax, those who are either ignorant of the law, or fearful of the government. I would encourage you all to watch Aaron Russo's movie, "America: From Freedom to Fascism" this will eliminate the ignorance equation in the aforesaid example, and then you will be forced to choose. Pay the Income tax out of fear, or choose the path of resistance that best suits you, whatever you do, do so knowingly, let us all step out of the fog, and into the light, by doing what we know to be inherently right. It should be clearly understood that- "...whether the resistance against government tyrants is non-violent or physically violent, the effort to overthrow state oppression qualifies as true patriotism." -Ron Paul - Before the U.S. House of Representatives, May 22, 2007 We should all hope and pray, that a peaceful revolution can prevail for - "Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable." - John F Kennedy - ~ Rest In Peace Aaron Russo ~
