Want to Go to Jail? Stop Filing Your Income Tax Forms.

A lot of leaders in the tax protest movement have done jail time for their consistency. They did what they told others to do. They are now convicted felons with no money.
Some are still in jail. Irwin Schiff is one of them. He may get out in two years. He has been in jail since 2006. Are you ready to imitate him? Read this first.
Trusting laymen in the tax revolt movement are often unaware of just how consistently the IRS has gained convictions.
There are always exceptions, but the pattern is clear: juries normally convict. These protesters use arcane language and references to tax law cases that do not apply. It does them no good. These people jabber in jailhouse lawyer babble, and then they wind up in jail. They really do become jailhouse lawyers.

I prefer to not engage in Phyrric Victories, Don Quixote quests, or fights that I can’t win.
Income taxes are like that category.
As a little L libertarian, I think that the Gooferment is immoral, ineffective, and inefficient. Taxes are theft.
BUT, (and there is always a BIG butt), until juries refuse to enforce the Income Tax diktats, I’ll kowtow.
Like the “(pseudo) War on (some) Drugs”, tyranny will end when the Sheeple and Clovers no longer convict.
That why I never get on juries. I want to see a victim. The Gooferment, its politicians and bureaucrats, are NOT victims. They are the aggressors.
