IRS Political Dragnet

"Why should I trade one tyrant three thousand miles away for three thousand tyrants one mile away? An elected legislature can trample a man's rights as easily as a king can."
--Benjamin Martin (The Patriot)

The IRS has released the names of organizations targeted approximately five years ago for additional scrutiny. More than 25% have words such as "tea" and "liberty" in their names. Less than one percent contain words that can be reasonably linked to progressive coalitions.

As Allen West observes, this revelation reinforces the existence of a political dragnet prosecuted by the Obama administration. Imagine the outrage in the mainstream media if the roles were reversed--Republican administration, preponderance of progressive groups targeted.

The stuff upon which revolutions are built over time...
