WOW... and some still support america despite being not just TYRANNICAL but own right despotically repressive. Thanks to the authoritarian government that has already taken TRILLIONS away from the taxpayer to pay the scumbag bankers who stole TRILLIONS from the american public, thanks to the Real Estate HOAX that now has caused millions to lose their homes with millions more to lose theirs in the coming year; thanks to the US shipping jobs to off shore or other nations millions are on UE and/or jobless; thanks to a education system designed to DUMB DOWN the average citizen falls WAAAAAAAY behind practically ALL NATIONS in intelligence...And now your GESTAPO nation is putting the clamp to you to take what little you have left.
The ‘New Gestapo’? Maine Gov. Blasts Massive Expansion of IRS Agents
By Erica Ritz | The Blaze – 13 hrs ago
Governor Paul LePage of Maine is making news for allegedly referring to the IRS as the “new Gestapo” Saturday, after blasting the president’s overhaul of our health care system.
He reportedly said:
This tax will add to the $500 billion in tax increases that are already in Obamacare. Now that Congress can use the taxation power of the federal government to compel behavior or lack thereof, what’s next? More taxes if we don’t drive Toyota Priuses or if we eat too much junk food or maybe even pea soup?Listen to the entire radio clip here, via Dirigo Blue.
This decision has made America less free. ‘We The People’ have been told there is no choice. You must buy health insurance or pay the new Gestapo – the I.R.S.
Even more disheartening is that reviving the American dream just became nearly impossible to do. We are now a nation in which supports dependency rather than independence. Instead of encouraging self-reliance we are encouraging people to rely on the government. [Emphasis added].
LePage has a history of making inflammatory remarks, saying the NAACP could “kiss his butt” in 2011, and that Barack Obama could “go to hell” in 2010. At Maine’s GOP convention in 2012 he told the unemployed to “get off the couch and get yourself a job,” to a standing ovation from the crowd.
According to the House Ways and Means Committee, the IRS will be adding 16,500 new auditors, agents, and other employees to “investigate and collect billions in new taxes from Americans.”
