Owe the IRS? You’re Not Going Anywhere


Owe the IRS? You’re Not Going Anywhere

A new bill making its way through Congress could allow the federal government to prevent Americans who owe back taxes from leaving the country.

The provision is part of Senate Bill 1813, which was introduced by Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) in November and passed by the Senate on March 14 “to reauthorize Federal-aid highway and highway safety construction programs, and for other purposes.”

Those “other purposes” have come to include a little-known amendment recently introduced by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid that would allow the State Department to revoke, deny or limit passports for anyone the Internal Revenue Service certifies as having “a seriously delinquent tax debt in an amount in excess of $50,000.”

While the provision does make exceptions if the debt “is being paid in a timely manner” or “in emergency circumstances or for humanitarian reasons,” it doesn’t require that a person be charged with tax evasion before having their passport revoked — only that the IRS has filed a notice of lien or levy against them.

    I was wondering what Thomas Jefferson would think about senate bill 1813 with the attached amendment giving new power to the IRS to revoke and suspend passports.
    Thomas Jefferson Said
    A free people [claim] their rights as derived from the laws of nature, and not as the gift of their chief magistrate.

    A government afraid of its citizens is a Democracy. Citizens afraid of government is tyranny!

    A little rebellion now and then is a good thing and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical.

    All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.

    Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.

    Educate and inform the whole mass of the people…they are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.

    Experience has shown, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.

    Government big enough to supply everything you need is big enough to take everything you have. The course of history shows us that as a government grows, liberty decreases.

    Governments constantly choose between telling lies and fighting wars, with the end result always being the same. One will always lead to the other.

    I am not a friend to a very energetic government. It is always oppressive.

    I hope our wisdom will grow with our power, and teach us that the less we use our power the greater it will be.

    I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it.

    In matters of style, swim with the current; In matters of principle, stand like a rock.

    My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.

    Most bad government has grown out of too much government.

    Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of liberty.

    The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.

    The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions that I wish it to be always kept alive. It will often be exercised when wrong, but better so than not to be exercised at all.

    The purpose of government is to enable the people of a nation to live in safety and happiness. Government exists for the interests of the governed, not for the governors.

    The policy of the American government is to leave their citizens free, neither restraining nor aiding them in their pursuits.

    The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first.

    The Democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.

    The will of the people is the only legitimate foundation of any government, and to protect its free expression should be our first object.

    There is not in the British empire a man who more cordially loves a union with Great Britain than I do. But by the God that made me, I will cease to exist before I yield to a connection on such terms as the British Parliament propose.

    Those who surrender freedom for security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one.

    To preserve our independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our election between economy and liberty, or profusion and servitude.

    Upon the altar of God I pledge eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.

    We in America do not have government by the majority. We have government by the majority who participate.

    We must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt.

    What country can preserve its liberties if its rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance?

    When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.

    One man with courage is a majority.

    Never put off for tomorrow, what you can do today.
    (yes,all the above are Thomas Jefferson quotes)

    After reading his quotes it is easy to see that Thomas Jefferson one of the authors of the Declaration of Independence would have opposed the attached amendment in senate 1813 giving new power to the IRS to revoke and suspend passports. This bill 1813 has already passed the senate, it is very important that you contact your representatives to oppose senate bill 1813 and request that the amendment giving new power to the IRS to revoke and suspend passports removed. It is very easy to contact your representatives by email, here is the link. https://writerep.house.gov/writerep/welcome.shtml
    Thomas Jefferson would not just complain, he would do everything possible to prevent bill 1813 and the attached amendment giving new power to the IRS to revoke and suspend passports from becoming law.

  2. I think Jefferson would be organizing citizen militias.
