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.”

There is absolutely no way the the federal government can justify their allowing the Internal Revenue Service to target individuals or organizations based upon their political and/or religious views and affiliations. These unlawful actions of people within the ranks of the Internal Revenue Service personnel must be appropriately investigated and charges must be brought against all those involved in these unconstitutional actions that have been unlawfully taken against our law-abiding American Citizens who have broken no laws of the United States Government Of America. We cannot and must not permit the IRS to continue administering the implementation of The Affordable Care And Protection Act--Obamacare--because they have now already proven that they are obviously incapable of managing such a massive invasion of the privacy of all of the American People, muchless, deliniating decisions that should be fully restricted to a physician's office where these decisions are made solely between an individual and that individual's private physician based upon the sole consideration of medical necessity for that particular individual--a decision in which the IRS should have no oversight nor any decision limiting powers.

Send the IRS employees to jail. Disband the IRS. Implement a Fair or Flat Tax. Innocent Americans should not have to fear Random Audits. This should stop immediately. Targeting Americans for Political and Religious beliefs is not American. Do your job.
