    That is outright racism.

    You want to compare paying the lowest tax rates in the industrial world to slavery?

    That's as bad as the Tea Party bigots who compared taxpayers to Holocaust victims.

    Its not racism. Its hyperbole, but its definitely not racist.

    Apparently, that is how secessionists think.

    Because a small groups of secessionists keeps trying to impose their will on loyal majorities.

    By definition, it is.

    You secede, you admit you have no loyalty.

    At the very least, it's hyperbole that also does not care if it is racist or not.

    The history of the Libertarian movement is one of cozying up to racists and intense hostility to civil rights.

    eg Ron Paul has some of his leading organizers drawn from white supremacists.

    It has nothing to do with race.

    Lets go through this..

    The income tax is a form of involuntary servitude.
    People like Haymarket desire to use people to reach their desires through the tax system and will NOT allow them to renounce their citizenship without punishment to avoid such treatment.
    He also supports taxing them wherever they go on the globe as long as they are citizen of this country knowing full well there is no reason for them to be paying taxes.

    All of this is describing slavery using taxes.

    Apparently to an open racist such as yourself as well. One who just fantasized about being a slave owner.

    I really hate it when ignorant yokel racists give such a bad impression of my state. Most Texans aren't like him. Texas is the home of Kinky Friedman and Janis Joplin and the Butthole Surfers.

    It's not filled with John Wayne wannabes, no matter how a dying species of rednecKKKs might claim otherwise.
