“Dare to do things worthy of imprisonment if you mean to be of consequence. “ Juvenal

Some think taxes are duty, others think they are too high, but we know they are immoral. Let’s inspire others through our ACTION to end their own slavery. We are not the property of others and neither are the fruits of our labor. This is a chance to spread the moral message, by example, of voluntary transactions between people and to combat the Slavespeak concerning taxes. Will you stand with me with ready and welcoming wrists to do what’s necessary to abolish the income tax?

Your best bet is to carpool and park in one of the street mall parking lots and walk down to the Post Office. Our goal is to get 100 Radicals for Liberty out to this event. Carpe Libertatem,
Joey H. "There are thousands hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking the root." Henry David Thoreau

    We need more of a presence though. I was glad to see othgers well received the HR1207 info. Thanks for those that were there and to those that were there in spirit. We need to keep the momentum going.

    I'll be a little late to Midway but hope to put together an "End the Fed" sign w/ a subheading like "No Fed = No IRS," or something like that. Wish I had some flyers or something to hand out... been very busy lately. Personally, I think we should zero in on the Fed - will also help to differentiate us from all the others who are still stuck in the left-right matrix.

    Tearing up paper is only risky as to potential violation of littering laws. Of course selective enforcement is always in force.

    It would seem odd to take the position that the protest be either unusually risky or not protest at all. The aim of the protest is to bring attention to the public, that there is a significantly higher number of people that disagree with the existing state of affairs than what the media leads the public to believe.

    And as for the courageously anonymous fool below, I hope he comes to Midway to show his integrity and lack of hypocrisy. O Brave One! Come out of your bunker and show us the way to freedom! Tear up your master's payment demand! Do it in front of his enforcers and for all of youtube to see! And remember to smile to give us courage as you're whisked away to true freedom, where you are fed and clothed, and never have to work again. I might come for that spectacle.

    I hate the government and want none of it. It breaks the 8th Commandment just by its thieving existence, and I hate being the subject of its crimes. But, I pay the least amount forced on me by this Mafia, and get on with my life. I know I'm a slave. But, a fugitive slave is no more free - and he is still shackled by the pursuit of his heavily armed master demanding every last unpaid cent, with interest, and penalty, and tighter shackles.

    Part 4 T. S. Eliot saw how the world will end: with a whimper. A whimper is what you expect from a whipped dog who licks the feet of his master.

    Part 3
    But oh no, the polite liberal ineffectual protest us so much more comfortable. You meekly pay your taxes like an obedient servant then you politely protest by the showy but ineffectual means which indulgent Leviathan says you may, then you go home to a warm bed and the state continues unaffected by your quaint worthless "feel good" gesture. You have broken no shackles but go home at the end of your rally feeling your servitude may be enhanced.

    Part 2
    If the same number of people had the courage to simply say NO and tear up their tax return forms in front of the Federal Building and then when the police arrive smile for the television cameras and hold out their wrists cheerfully for the handcuffs, the Federal jail would be overflowing within hours. When they then made it perfectly clear that if released they would continue to decline to pay the tax, they could force consideration of what they intend to say. (Continued)

    Here is a private response to me from one of our members:

    It is ironic that the announcement of the tax protest at the Post Office concludes with a signature quotation from Thoreau. Faced with a tax to pay for a cause he opposed, Thoreau did not just express his opinion; he declined to pay the tax and went to jail.

    To rally hundreds of people to express an opinion - and then pay the tax! - is futile. (Continued)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
