April 9 Tax Protest Planned in D.C.

by Jeff Head, March 19, 2001

The following letter was distributed via e-mail.

As many of you know, it is rare that I send out an email to my entire mailing list. As most of you are also aware, I have been very involved in activities and efforts which are directed at restoring our nation to the constitutional Republic is was designed to be, and re-instituting the principles of liberty this nation was founded upon.

In this regard, I have been made aware of and activity on April 9th in Washington, DC. This activity is being organized by two organizations that I have developed a lot of respect for, the "We the People Foundation for Constitutional Education" (http://www.givemeliberty.org) and the "Tyranny Response Team" (http://www.trt-co.org/national/) organizations.

The activity has the stated objective to, "educate millions of Americans about the fraudulent nature of the income tax system issue, the recalcitrance of the government, and the urgency tens of thousands of concerned citizens place on the need for the federal income tax authorities to meet with the tax researchers in a public forum". (The is from the web site of "We the People Foundation" at http://www.givemeliberty.org/features/taxes/irswalkaround.htm). In order to help do this, on April 9th, 2001, they will march from the Jefferson Memorial to the IRS building and completely in-circle it to attract publicity and draw the attention of the press to the effort to end the tyranny of the IRS and the current tax structure.

I support this effort as I believe that one of the principle methods and apparatus of the encroaching infringement on our rights is the funding those efforts receive as a result of the current tax structure. In recent years, there has been a growing recognition of the fraudulent nature and abuses of the current tax structure. Along with this has come a hopeful and growing effort to return taxation in this nation to something more in keeping with the intent of the founders and the principles of liberty that they espoused in forming this nation. The "We the People Foundation" organization and the notable patriots involved with it have been at the center of this effort along with many other dedicated and honorable individuals and groups. The following is a link to a full page advertisement the "We the People Foundation" took out in USA Today, http://www.givemeliberty.org/features/taxes/usatoday.htm.

If any of you can lend assistance, or be there in Washington DC on April 9th to help with this March, I would strongly encourage you to do so. Becoming involved now, in whatever worthy, civil methods that present themselves to us, may yet avoid the much more horrific courses for defeating tyranny such as were forced upon our founders.

Sincerely and in Liberty,
