How much more of this can we take?

by Robert Arvay, Contributing Writer

Wave after wave, outrage after outrage, slams into us, yet we have not risen up in rebellion.

Consider the case of Lois Lerner, among many others. She says she did nothing wrong, then refuses to testify on the grounds that if she does so, she might incriminate herself.

We respect the Fifth Amendment, but that amendment was intended to prevent abuse by the government against citizens. It is an amendment intended to shield the public from government abuse, not to shield the government from its criminal acts of abuse against the public.

IRS bureaucrats are unionized. Union rules protect IRS bureaucrats from answering to us, their employers. Union rules? Who was it that signed our names to this outrageous agreement with a union which seeks not to protect the public, but rather, to protect those who abuse the public? Who did this? Yes, IRS workers should be protected, but we who pay their wages deserve equal protection from them, when they abuse us. What kind of “system” permits this?
