Bill Allows IRS to Deny Americans Right to Travel -- Like the former Soviet Union, U.S. is setting up internal passport system

Senator Barbara Boxer’s MAP-21 (Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act) is headed to the House after clearing the Senate last month. Boxer’s bill allows the federal government to revoke the passports of citizens the IRS claims owe taxes.

“There is no requirement that the tax payer be guilty of or even charged with tax evasion, fraud, or any criminal offense — only that the citizen is alleged to owe the IRS back taxes of $50,000 or more,” reports The Daily Economist.

In other words, the Fourth Amendment will become irrelevant in many taxes cases if this legislation makes it through the House. MAP-21 does, however, face opposition by some Republicans.

In order to blunt criticism, Boxer’s bill is being portrayed in standard class warfare fashion – according to CBS and others, the law will be used to go after wealthy tax scofflaws who owe the IRS $50,000 or more, so the average citizen need not worry.

In fact, the IRS routinely leans on the little guy and small business owners. For instance, in 2010 the owner of a car wash in Sacramento, California, was harassed by the IRS after the government said he owed four cents in back taxes (which became $200 after three years of penalties and fees).

The IRS is also used by the establishment as a political weapon, as various Tea Party organizations around the country recently learned.

“In January and February of this year, the Internal Revenue Service began sending out letters to various local Tea Parties across the country,” writes Colleen Owens. The federal wealth confiscation agency asked the political groups to identify their volunteers and donors. “What possible reason would the IRS have for Tea Parties to ‘name your donors’ when said donations are non-deductible?” Owens notes (most Tea Party organizations are nonprofit 501(c)(4) and donations are not deductible).

Chief Justice John Marshall once observed that “the power to tax involves the power to destroy” and that is precisely what the government often attempts to do, as former Florida House Speaker Marco Rubio discovered in 2010.

The IRS is no longer strictly about taxes. “Top IRS officials have been working with Democrats on Capitol Hill to determine how the agency will enforce President Obama’s new health care law. Republican lawmakers estimate the legislation will require the hiring of many thousands of new (and armed) tax enforcement agents,” Fox News reported last month. “Under the new law, the IRS is required to fine taxpayers thousands of dollars if they do not purchase health insurance. In order for the government to enforce compliance, tax authorities will need information, for the first time, about people’s health care. Collecting that data will require more IRS personnel.”

In short, the IRS will act as an enforcer – armed to the teeth – for Obamacare, that is if it is not ruled to be unconstitutional by the Supreme Court in June.

The IRS is but one component of an increasingly tyrannical and militarized federal government.

“The Department of Homeland Security recently stoked concern by contracting a company to provide them with 450 million rounds of hollow point bullets. Now the federal agency is also purchasing bullet-proof checkpoint booths that include ‘stop and go’ lights,” writes Paul Joseph Watson today. “The purpose behind the bullet proof booths is unknown, but the DHS has publicly announced that it plans to increase the number of unannounced checkpoints manned by TSA VIPR teams and other federal agents beyond the 9,300 that were set up last year alone.”

The IRS move on supposed tax scofflaws by denying them the ability to travel abroad is part of a larger effort to control the movement of citizens in the same way citizens in the Soviet Union were forced under propiska laws to ask the government for permission to travel – and exiled dissidents were forced to live in isolated far-flung towns under virtual house arrest.

As we noted in 2011, an internal passport for Americans is codified under the December 2004 Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act. If fully implemented, Ron Paul has warned, it will allow “the government to establish a Soviet-style internal passport system” that would subject “every citizen to surveillance and screening points” of the sort the DHS is now expanding across America.

Funny to see this happen at a moment where so many Americans are trying to scape the USA.

The IRS if given this power would be able to at any time prevent anyone from leaving the USA in a legit way (If mexicans can get in we can still get out(ps learn spanish rosetta stone is great!)) All the IRS has to do is say you owe a few dollars and without any oversight will be able to revoke your passport. Good news is If your like me, your not a coward looking to run from tyrant scum and 2 if you must leave all you have to do Is make it out of the country and have a pocket full of Ben Franklin's and your passport. Typically they just look at it and stamp it, but if they should go further to check it a bribe works south of the boarder. 

Personally I'm rooting for the globalists to go for broke, the faster the better in my eyes. I'm hoping for a quick collapse, a short house cleaning and a smooth restart with a semi-new Government. I don't sweat this stuff at all.

Bribes at the border, nice. I was in Mexico for three weeks couple yrs back and actually got jacked by cops in an armored truck with sub machine guns and ski masks. My gf at the time told me that if you get pulled over you can usually bribe them and get out of a ticket. So yea, the bribe works. Whatever you do DON'T let them see all your cash. They will take it. A brief study of containment fabrication should suffice to pass any border checkpoints with valuables. 

The police thugs blackened my eye and stole about 30 pesos out of her purse and took about 50 pesos from my wallet. I had a hundred dollar bill in my wallet I palmed that they never got ;)

Gotta love those rogue skills :P
