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 price of apathy towards public affairs is to be ruled by evil men" Those are the words spoken by Plato over 2,000 years ago and they could not hold more true today. If we don't stand up to our government in it's abuses to the Constitution and the public it is supposed to serve, we become nothing but it's slaves. Our governors act like they are the ruling class and we the working class are nothing but tax slaves. I am shocked by the IRS and it's abuses of power. This is not a party issue, it's an affront to the Constitution and should be one for all who love their nation and freedom. I am in full support of holding those responsible to face their crimes in our court of law. It's time for Congress to do it's job and take their sworn oath to uphold the Constitution seriously! Failure to do so will harm what's left of the American public's faith in it's government.

It just so happens that I was one of those tax-paying citizens targeted by the IRS. This kind of intimidation, corruption and abuse of power must be stopped now.

I am disgusted about the way our government treats the public. When will we wake up and realize it is out of control. If this isn't tyranny (which our President says doesn't exist), what is? How much worse does it have to get before America wakes up?
