    Default Resistance: Democrats Plan to Withhold Federal Taxes to Protest Trump

    Some Democrats prepare to withhold paying federal taxes in potentially the biggest tax boycott since the Vietnam War, [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] from The Guardian.

    The National War Tax Resistance Coordinating Committee (NWTRCC), which [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], says there has “renewed interest in war tax resistance following Trump’s inauguration,” with the website’s traffic doubling in the past month.

    “Something has clicked in the minds of thousands of people across the country… we don’t want to pay for Trump’s agenda! While many of the reasons people are fed up—extreme militarism, mass incarceration, police brutality, and mass deportations—are part of the foundation of our country, it is exciting to see many new people contacting NWTRCC and wanting to organize in their communities,” the website reads.

    The boycott has also attracted the interest of celebrities, with Mia Farrow saying “I refuse to pay a penny of my taxes toward Trump’s insane, insulting wall.” Feminist activist Gloria Steinhem also pledges her support, telling The Guardian that she will deduct from her tax return money she believes should be going to Planned Parenthood.

    In December, Time magazine [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] entitled “65 Million Americans Should Threaten to Not Pay Taxes,” urging the “approximately 65 million Democrats who voted for Hillary Clinton [to] pledge that in the future if a Republican wins the presidency with fewer votes than a Democrat for the third time in our era, we won’t pay taxes to the federal government.”

    California Democrats have [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] to “cut off the feds” by withholding taxes, with former State Assembly Speaker Willie Brown claiming the state could become “an organized non-payer,” in a state of “non-compliance with the federal tax code.”

    Before the election, dozens of celebrities promised to effectively boycott America by [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] should Donald Trump be elected. The list included singers Barbara Streisand and Miley Cyrus, the actor Bryan Cranston and the comedienne Amy Schumer. Since his election, none of their plans have materialized.

    Once the word gets out that the IRS is seizing homes and kicking the tax-dead-beats into the street, there will be a lot of libtards lining up to pay their taxes, interest and penalties.

    Good. Also, drink no water or fluids, eat nothing. Speed through all stop signs and traffic lights. Also, look both ways then simply take and hide that item your holding in someones store.
    Then, as the patriotic U.S. loving citizen you shout you are, if this fails, restrict the rights of others to speak, destroy property that isnt yours then sit down...hold your breath firmly...and watch the sheriffs sale on everything you own.
    I know such articles are meant to incite hate from all sides. This one worked, for me anyway. I guess I'm too old, too sick or too much meds. About had it. We have disasters, that damn failing..turns out several years ago when opportune time to address it,..." just too costly to fix " ?...east coast storms...utilty workers forcibly turned away and not allowed to repair grid system that you find in third world slums...Katrina, for reasons I still dont know, Bush stayed silent to lies said about his efforts, while mayor claiming " we will now have a chocolate " city...that mayor removed for crimes...when a rash or giant tornadoes ruin miles of south and mid west, couple stories, then real American families and citizens get to work and rebuild. We dont have too many such crisis here, they are just not enough in the right damn places. Maybe...we need earthquake to slide CA. into the sea...then reply...sorry, FEMA paid by and for...taxpayers!

    "Once the word gets out that the IRS is seizing homes.........."

    That's not how it actually works. I once - my own fault - got sideways with the IRS. They screwed up the correspondence communication between us, but that didn't stop them from "freezing" my bank accounts and even confiscating the amount under contention. They can get yer house, but why bother at first when they can get your bank accounts.
