"Tax reform is taking the taxes off things

that have been taxed in the past and

putting taxes on things that haven't been taxed before."

-- Art Buchwald

(1925-2006) American Humorist and Columnist




"The IRS is an extraordinary example of the end justifying the means. The means of this agency is growth. It is interesting that the revenue officers within the IRS refer to taxpayers as 'inventory'. The IRS embodies the political realities of the selfish human desire to dominate others. Thus the end of this gigantic pretense of officialdom is power, pure and simple. The meek may inherit the earth, but they will never receive a promotion in an agency where efficiency is measured by the number of seizures of taxpayers' property and by the number of citizens and businesses driven into bankruptcy."

-- George Hansen

Congressman and author of "To Harass Our People"




"100% of what is collected is absorbed

solely by interest on the Federal Debt ...

all individual income tax revenues are gone

before one nickel is spent on the services

taxpayers expect from government."

-- Grace Commission
