I realize that many of you probably dismiss me as a lunatic or a conspiracy theory nut. The truth is that if you had asked me three days ago if there was a law requiring me to pay income tax I would have said "of course." However, after doing many hours of research I have discovered that this is entirely not true. And, in fact, the IRS says that 70 million Americans do not file tax returns each year.
This does not mean that you can simply stop paying and have everything work out. You must learn a bit about the system and realize that you can declare yourself a "nontaxpayer" which exempts you from being considered for owing taxes. This is totally legal and in fact has been upheld in countless court cases, including 8 supreme court cases in the last 90 years.
Google Evans v. Gore (1920) in which the supreme court rules:
"After further consideration, we adhere to that view and accordingly hold that the Sixteenth Amendment does not authorize or support the tax in question."
"We conclude that the (income) tax was imposed contrary to the constitutional prhibition, and so must be adjudged invalid.
Judgment reversed. "
The IRS code is intentionally confusing, but many former IRS officials have gone public and said that there is in fact no law that requires people to pay income tax. Please do research. Please.
As for how this relates to the daily rider forum, well, I think most Americans here could afford a new bike with the money they save from not paying taxes in a year.
Most of the media and world would have you think that if you do not pay income taxes in America you are "unpatriotic." When, in fact, surrendering your money to the governemt no questions asked is the true lack of patriotism.
Do research and get back to me or this thread. If you watch Aaron Russo's "Freedom to Fascism" film (included in the links I provided earlier) available on google video, you will see that I am speaking the truth. All the information you need is on the net. Spread the word.
