They Are Systematically Destroying Our Independence And Making Us All Serfs Of The State
August 13, 2013
The percentage of Americans that are economically independent has dropped to a stunningly low level.
In order to be economically independent, you have got to be able to take care of yourself without any assistance from anyone else.
Unless you are independently wealthy, that means that you either have your own business or you have a full-time job.
Unfortunately, as you will see below, the percentage of Americans that are self-employed is at an all-time record low and the percentage of Americans with a full-time job has declined to a level not seen in about 30 years.
Tea Party Says Time For IRS is Over
Nation needs something that ‘can never be used as a political weapon’
The IRS gives annual bonuses of $86.9 million per year but this year, the new acting commissioner of the IRS, Danny Werfel, told employees that those will be eliminated.
“In this unprecedented budget situation, I do not believe the IRS should pay performance awards,” said Werfel, but he added, “The elimination of bonuses was not a reflection on the quality of work done by the agency.”
He said that eliminating the bonuses would prevent furlough days later in the year, as well.
The IRS has come under heavy scrutiny since it became obvious that it was targeting minority groups, such as tea party groups and Jewish organizations.

Will U.S. Even Survive Obama’s Full Term?
Media giant: America being ‘taken over’ by president’s policies
The rash of scandals facing Barack Obama and his administration in recent days has some people wondering if the president can survive his full term through January 2017.
Britain’s Telegraph newspaper is even running the headline: “You have to wonder: Will Obama see out his full term?”
But U.S. radio giant Rush Limbaugh says that’s the wrong question to ask.
“That’s not the question. The question is: Will America last through Obama’s full term?” Limbaugh said on his program Monday.
IRS Tells Ministry: You Can’t Talk About That
Hear federal agent say ‘You have to know your boundaries’
A new tape recording has been released that reveals an Internal Revenue Service agent stumbling and hesitating her way through a telephone call with a non-profit organization with the basic message that its officials are not allowed to spread their pro-life message.

You don’t apply for tax exemption.”
