When you do business at the barrel of a gun, then things like evidence, logic, and of course good faith, just aren’t a part of the game plan. Violence, not logic, dictates and that is demonstrated again with this first call.
I say his position is the “law is applicable because the law says so”, and he responds by saying it makes perfect sense to him. He is either lying, or he doesn’t understand simple logic. I finally get this bureaucrat to understand and agree that: “The law applies because the laws says so” is circular, but that doesn’t stop him for a moment. The exchange went like this:
“So when you say the law applies because the law says it applies that doesn’t sound circular though?”
“It sounds circular but it’s applicable.”
Honest people, acting in good faith, when confronted with the fact they have no evidence and only rely on a logical fallacy, stop proceeding. I can’t make this any clearer. Lysander Spooner was spot on, these people calling themselves governments are nothing more than gangs of killers, thieves and liars. Listen to the call and make your own decision if this bureaucrat is acting in good faith. While not entirely clear from the call, this involves the forcible taking of property or in words, the robbery of someone’s property.
I confront another tax bureaucrat (second audio below) on this issue directly by asking if they are taking my property by force, how is that different from stealing? She says they have legal authority, but is unable to provide any evidence the laws apply. I ask several times: What evidence do you have proving the constitution and laws apply to me just because I’m physically in Washington? She is not able to answer. In the recording she agrees they need evidence the laws apply, yet she would not stop stealing from me if she lacked the evidence.
