You Owe the IRS? Welcome to the Hunger Games
By Richard Walbaum
The Hunger Games is a movie that takes place 75 years after a failed U.S. insurrection, and the population is confined to 12 districts barely surviving impoverished conditions. Alex Jones claims that this is the actual plan for our future, a case where art imitates life (we now have 10 FEMA regions).
Senate Bill 1813, Section 40304, states that any individual who owes more than $50,000 to the Internal Revenue Service may be subject to a denial of passport. Could this just be the first step? When our nation is bankrupted and everyone owes the IRS, perhaps everyone’s travel across state or FEMA lines will be restricted. Welcome to your district.
Section 40304 is unconstitutional for several reasons. First, a person’s property or rights cannot be taken except by due process of law, and in our system of government that includes a right to trial by jury. To suspend a person’s right to travel is a criminal penalty which cannot be imposed in an IRS civil case. Pursuant to Article 3 Sec. 2 of the U.S. Constitution, “The Trial of all Crimes … shall be by Jury.” When a criminal penalty is imposed, it must be a criminal action and not a civil one, and trial must be by jury.
Second, Article 1 Sec. 9 Cl. 3 forbids Attainder, the imposition of punishment without benefit of judicial trial. And finally, the Seventh Amendment secures our right to a jury in a civil case: “In suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved.” Unfortunately, a jury trial is never allowed in a civil tax action.
Our Founders granted the government certain powers, and reserved certain rights which are coextensive:
If the Constitution in its grant of powers is to be so construed that Congress shall be able to carry into full effect the powers granted, it is equally imperative that where prohibition or limitation is placed upon the power of Congress that prohibition or limitation should be enforced in its spirit and to its entirety. It would be a strange rule of construction that language granting powers is to be liberally construed and that language of restriction is to be narrowly and technically construed. Kansas v. Colorado, 206 U.S. 46, 91 (1907).
When government ignores your rights you need to assert them. If you want your rights you must claim them, otherwise you do not have any. One remedy, should government persist in violating your rights, is 18 USC 242 which states that:
Whoever, under color of any law, … willfully subjects any person … to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States, … shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both… .
Section 241 applies to a conspiracy against rights; if two or more persons violate your rights, the penalty is up to 10 years jail and a fine.
