Get Rid of the IRS, the TSA, the VA
by Ron Paul, via The Ron Paul Institute

Three recent stories regarding three government agencies — the IRS, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) — show why we should oppose big government for practical, as well as philosophical, reasons.
*** and ***
The TSA, VA, and IRS are just three examples of how government cannot effectively provide any good or service except authoritarianism. Individuals acting in the free market are more than capable of providing for their own needs, including the need to protect themselves, their families, and their property if the government gets out of the way.

When the “homeland security” reaction to 9/11 was to create a whole new bunch of Federal bureaucrats, I was appalled. As result, I, and a lot of folks, just stopped using Air Travel unless it was completely unavoidable.
The VA has been a failure.
And, the IRS is just a political tool for who ever is in power.
Time to nuke all three.
Then, there are many more organizations to go into the shredder!
