Well, like clockwork, tax day is fast approaching. Like so many people I know, I believe that the federal income tax (along with the 16th Amendment, of course) should be abolished. Citizens should have first claim to their money, not the federal government. The income tax has led to a ballooning in federal revenue, which in turn has given rise to a massive increase in federal spending, government programs, bailouts, and unconstitutional usurpations. How much longer will the American public continue to remain silent in the face of our growing welfare state?
This year, a coalition of conservative and libertarian organizations have risen in protest. They include groups such as Americans for Prosperity, Campaign for Liberty, Freedom Works, The Leadership Institute, Young Americans for Liberty, and many others. They are supporting a number of rallies across the nation on April 15th in opposition. Here in Virginia, you can, (as of March 31), find rallies in: Abingdon, Roanoke, Rocky Mount, Lynchburg, Charlottesville, Richmond, Newport News, and Virginia Beach.
So head on over to The Tax Day Coalition website to learn more and to sign up.
