Tell Congress: Audit the IRS and Charge Members for their Crimes!

Congress must find the very individuals who authorized the IRS' attacks on free speech, remove them from their posts, and charge them for their criminal activity.

On May 10, IRS officials apologized for targeting conservative, tea party, and other pro-limited government groups and organizations. 

The fact that IRS agents would bully groups with particular ideologies contrary to their own is a gross fact -- what's worse is that senior IRS officials were aware of these acts since 2011 and had done nothing to stop them. In other words, senior officials have been condoning the use of our taxation system as a bludgeon for nearly three years. 

Congress must audit the Internal Revenue Service for these unacceptable crimes. Congress must find the very individuals who authorized these free-speech-based attacks, remove them from their posts, and charge them for their criminal activity. 

Sen. Mike Lee said, "This should not be dismissed as just another conflict between left and right; it is a conflict between the federal government and the American people, who — regardless of their political leanings — should be free to exercise their constitutionally protected rights without fear of political retribution from the world’s most powerful tax-collection agency."

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul introduced a resolution on May 14 to investigate these IRS abuses. 

“The IRS has been using taxing power as a political tool to bully these conservative groups and this type of intimidation is a major violation of our U.S. Constitution,” Sen. Paul said. “This act of discrimination should not be tolerated and I demand a formal investigation seeking criminal charges against any individuals who authorized or were involved in targeting people of the United States based on their political views.”

The government claims the NSA over intrusion into snooping phone calls, emails, credit cards, etc. will keep us safer, however, they have excluded Mosques which are the pit of terrorist. It also pushes hard for Amnesty and our representatives seems to turn a blind eye to this outrageous overreach and scandals. Then with obvious epistemological blindness of building a security state (police state) leaving the borders open, it is made worse by turning the IRS lose on Conservatives, Tea Party, Veterans, Christians, some reporters, Patriots (terrorist to this administration and a few Republicans (WACKOs) like a pack of Dobermans. It makes the true values of the current administration apparent. Keeping the American citizen down is far more important than keeping us secure. The IRS finds faith disturbing, builds a gigantic security apparatus and yet even tho given first hand information by the Russian can't find find or stop the Boston Bombers (not even considering that instead of terrorist these boys were just upset that they weren't accepted - yes housing, food, college education on the taxpayers and the reward was killing and maining). The EPA released private Conservative information to radical groups along with the IRS. And we are suppose to trust our government. When the government quits going after the ones who still believe in the constitution and bill of rights and starts calling terrorist, terrorist and quits attacking our military on beliefs in God, dictating their reading materials and stops Muslims clerics for damning our heros to hell and stops the insanity of Amnesty and Obamacare which is really just a way to bankrupt our country and makes us slaves to a police state.
