“The IRS scandal is much worse than anyone realizes.”

How did I know this was a coordinated attack on conservative critics and donors? Because just in my small inner circle of friends, virtually every businessman that I met was getting hit with IRS audit notices only weeks after writing checks to the GOP and Mitt Romney. Strange coincidence, huh?

In one case, a friend of mine who is a hedge fund CEO attended the first major Wall Street fundraiser for Mitt Romney. Only a select few Wall Street big shots attended. After they went home, almost every one of them in the room that wrote a check to Romney later reported receiving IRS audit notices.

In another case, a friend of mine wrote a big check to Romney. He called me to report his suspicions when only weeks later he received an IRS notice. In another case, my next-door neighbor (who is a big GOP donor) reported being under vicious IRS attack. In another case, my accountant was suddenly audited only months after my first IRS attack. Even my publicist received an IRS audit notice.

The author of this article — a well known conservative critic of Obama — was himself audited twice, and exonerated twice. The second audit notice came five days after he had won in court the first time.

    It is time to end the IRS as we know it.

    Abuse of power, access to healthcare records and political intimidation all add up to one thing: TYRANNY!

    Folks, if we can’t recognize tyranny now, we never will.

    FLAT TAX

    Flat Tax? That might mean an end to those highly entertaining Star Trek spoof videos.

    The 16th Amendment was a bad idea. Not only did it create the ability for the government to abuse the taxing power 100 years later and violate the very rights government is supposed to protect, but it allowed the government access to such an unlimited supply of money that it freely overspends without regard to the need for the expenditure. Exhibit A: Star Trek spoof videos (unfunny though it is, did we really need to spend money on it?). When people ask “where is the waste in government,” you can’t point to a line item in the budget, but it is there nonetheless.

    Forget the Flat Tax idea and go back to the days before the 16th Amendment, the days of limited federal income and limited federal spending and power.

    If I sound angry, it’s because I am. If I don’t, it’s because I over-edited this comment.
