America: Freedom to Fascism

Home >> Economics 3.19K views 2 comments


Determined to find the law that requires Americans to pay income tax, Aaron Russo (THE ROSE, TRADING PLACES) sets out on a journey. Neither left- nor right-wing, this startling examination exposes the systematic erosion of civil liberties in America. Through interviews with US Congressmen, a former IRS Commissioner, former IRS and FBI agents, tax attorneys and authors, Russo connects the dots between money creation, federal income tax, voter fraud, the national identity card (becoming law in May 2008) and the implementation of radio frequency identification (RFID) technology to track citizens. A striking case about the evolving police state in America.

    I extremely enjoyed this! I would have to say this is an pretty informative post that needs mentioning elsewhere.

    Russo's work was an excellent start, but stopped short of the full story. Any discussion of the corrupt application of the US tax Code by the IRS is incomplete without reading Peter Hendrickson's excellent 'Cracking the Code'. In it, Mr. Hendrickson makes a convincing argument that it is not the tax code itself that is invalid, but rather its unconstitutional and erroneous inclusion of the average private sector worker as 'taxpayer' that is. In short, it was never meant to apply to the majority of us. The answer, therefore, is not tax 'avoidance', armed resistance, or failure to file, but rather honest affirmation that WE are not the 'taxpayers' referred to within the convoluted Code.
