As politicians in Washington D.C. scramble to take best advantage of the IRS debacle over targeting conservative and Tea Party groups for extra scrutiny, the Libertarian Party has upped the ante and is calling for the elimination of the Internal Revenue Service altogether. Forget the investigation…just get rid of it.
“We must abolish the IRS and end any need for a regulatory agency that snoops into people’s private lives,” said Libertarian party Executive Director Carla Howell. She added that our federal government needs far fewer resources to address their constitutionally-authorized obligations. “We don’t need an income tax, and we certainly don’t need the IRS,” Howell added.
If elimination were to be discussed, now would be the time. Officials within the IRS refuse to admit what they know and when they knew it. It is more clear than ever that corruption exists in all levels of government, and the IRS is quickly turning into a prime example of how rampant uncontrolled power and unaccountable government employees really are within our federal bureaucracy. How much more evidence do Americans need before they stand up for their own rights and call for an end to one of the more historically corrupt entities of the federal government?
Once again, the Libertarian Party is the only party calling for an end to political corruption. Neither the Republicans nor the Democrats have called for the elimination of the IRS, opting instead to maintain the abuse of so many American’s tax dollars and an insanely complex and punitive system of taxation.
“Individuals, businesses, and political organizations will all be safe from government interrogation and free to express their political views. It will dramatically increase the wealth of the private sector and inspire hundreds of billions of dollars in investment in small businesses and American jobs,” Howell said.
