"We're from the government and we're here to help you..."

Not. Really, really not. Claire Wolfe posts this tale of IRS abuse(redundant, I know). For earlier details, go here. Excerpt of letter Anthony wrote responding to a query from Claire:

The answer is complex. Unfortunately most people in the freedom movement have a foxhole mentality. ... Another factor is just plain fear of the IRS. An attorney friend contacted 6-8 other attorneys about helping and when they learned the IRS was involved they said, "No way!" More, the IRS has indicated in its filings that it intends to audit every one of my customers/supporters.

Who can blame them for wanting to avoid publicity? For not supporting me? It's the Catholic Inquisition with a different name.
