    We KNOW that the IRS was unfairly targeting Tea Party groups and have all kinds of evidence that it was doing so including admissions from dozens of people but (and apparently this is the only part that matters) because it can't be linked directly to Obama is isn't a problem.

    Is that really the argument people are trying to make?
    Not at all.

    The fact that it can't be linked to Obama is most definitely a problem

    They're racists. It would be too coincidental to think that they aren't. No other president has ever been the subject of such hate and vitriol from their ilk. W didn't even approach what's going on now and his crimes were multitudes of times more serious and egregioius. They're beinig caught with their pants down and like bad little boys they need to be marched out behind the woodshed while good and ordinary sane people fetch a switch!
    OK, they are racists. So you must be a terrorist supporter because so many Arabs support the Democratic party. See, it gets pretty ugly when you start assassinating peoples' character, based solely on association.

    Are there a few racists among Tea Party members? Of course there are. Lots of people from the Middle East, a very few of who don't like America, support Democrats. But I'm not going to say that, just because a few of them don't like America, then that makes you a terrorist. I would be un-american for doing something like that. So, let me ask you - Are YOU un-American?

    The states. I now support the concept of returning to a union of states. The federal government can bill the states for its services. The states can do the taxation.

We have testimony that people targeted by the IRS were targeted by the EPA, ATF, and OSHA at the same time in what looks like a coordinated effort. We even have evidence that whistle blowers in other agencies were then targeted by the IRS for harassment.

    We are way way beyond some guy in the Cincinnati office being responsible for this. It's beginning to look like a pervasive culture of corruption not just within the IRS but within much of the federal government.
    Show me the testimony which proves that. If it exists, it is in the 2 links I provided to the complete testimony given during the hearings. I read both links, and couldn't find what you are claiming. Perhaps you can do better?

    I'm confused. You say:

    and then this:

    ...Many Tea Party groups had applied, which appeared to be more political than providing social programs...
    appears antithetical...what am I missing?

    ...and yes, I read the ~200 pages of transcript but there is MUCH MORE out there for dissemination.

    FAct is, more than half of the baggers are racists. That's what their real agenda is all about. I'm in the process of proving that now with one example of them being afraid to take a stand against another war. Simply because it would tend to be supportive of Obama in that he opposes the mainstream of the repub party.

    But calling me a terrorist supporter is entirely different because the claim doesn't hold water and so it means nothing. if you would like to go the effort of substantiating that claim then I would probably be convinced to argue it.

    Am I anti-American? No. I'm anti-American wars that are being waged for phony reasons and I see another one on the horizon. Are you anti-American for refusing to speak up and oppose them? Aren't the majority of your people opposed to another ME war?

    Right...because it's so much better to have an incompetent administration than it is to have one that's overtly malicious.

    Re: IRS targeting linked to Republican staffer

    Some desperate liberal spin going on here

    The Federal Government used what are supposed to non partisan institutions to specifically target, harass and intimidate Americans based upon their beliefs. That is not in dispute. This information was released by Elijah Cummings who has made repeated contradictory statements and done everything in his power to brush this massive scandal under the rug. He's not even remotely a credible source.

    This just shows how desperate The Left is to excuse and dismiss Fascism because their belief in their GodKing Messiah > The Constitution

    You don't seem to understand. IT IS already linked to Obama just as those on the left are making the counter assertion that Bush had the IRS target the NAACP...
