As a practicing CPA for over 30 years I have often wondered about withholding payment of taxes as a protest and dismissing it because you would need to get a lot of taxpayers together to be effective.
Well the Anti-Trumpists seem to be giving it a try. I am sure they will be portrayed as righteous, courageous and making great sacrifice. The article is at http://www.theguardian.com/us, about mid page.
If this catches on, with all the other fronts the progressives are pushing forward battling Trump, chaos may not be far behind. The opposition seems to be finding ways to advance the “fight” seemingly every day.

let’s see how that works out for them. Maybe they should get a bill for all the other services they consume at taxpayer expense on top of the fines and interest.February 15, 2017 at 2:25 pm #41324Virgil KaneParticipant
As a practicing CPA you already know the outcome of not paying taxes. The devil will have his pound of flesh.

I think the point of M1-guys post is that:
A) the left is organizing a tax protest and they are good at organizing.
B) can the irs go after each “participant?”
C) will the irs go after each “participant?”
Are there enough like minds within .gov to give this things legs?
Just because we view the left to be a bunch non-masculine, whining snowflakes does not mean they cannot be effective…

Thanks for clarifying Jeff. In addition the left is demonstrating and confronting on different fronts in numerous locations. The so called “deep state” is fighting from within. They are learning from their engagements. We also read that they may be arming up. As I see it the game is on and if the left maintains intensity their “movement” may take on a life of its own. The left appears to me to have the momentum. Positions a have been defined, hardened and staked out. I do not see compromise, whatever that is. Finally, the left has the narrative. They are righteous, fair minded, doing good, blah, blah, blah. All it will take is a small miscalculation for things to go bad quickly.
The question is, what do we do? What can we do? If there is a pro Trump rally close by I will go, if nothing else to see what the opposition looks like, to see their tactics, to get a measure and feel of what is brewing.

I don’t know what to do. But I feel as if it’s a lose lose situation. Do nothing and the left builds momentum. Do “something” and the left gets the desired result…how to twist that to our advantage?
“Prepping” alone is no longer effective. Time has passed for preps. And training? You needed that yesterday.
The left is arming up! Even someone with no skill can cause chaos!

I totally get it. You both are right-on. My cynicism was on this morning more than my more thoughtful brain.
The anarchists will exploit the progressives organization capabilities and do more like Berkley where they raided a indignant college kid spat and went all violent. I expect more of this tactic since nobody got jacked down and arrested for felonies like arson and rioting.February 15, 2017 at 9:41 pm #41354Brian from GeorgiaParticipant
The Marxist left is certainly organized. They have leadership, goals and enthusiasm. They’ve played a 50+ year long game and are deeply entrenched in academia, entertainment and government.
The sacking of Flynn has been attributed to Obama admin holdovers (deep state). It’s like a low-intensity coup; low for now. The temp is certainly rising in this pressure cooker.
