Quote:LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A bill authored by a Southland lawmaker that could potentially allow the federal government to prevent any Americans who owe back taxes from traveling outside the U.S. is one step closer to becoming law.
The problem is that there are no laws that specifically say you have to pay Federal income tax in the first place. Though debtor’s Prison isn't legal, this proposal to limit a persons right to travel is really the same thing. When right to travel is restricted, are you not imprisoned?
Its true. There is NO debtor's prison.
The IRS will throw your ass right in there with all kinds of mean nasty ugly looking people. Mother rapers, father stabbers, father rapers! All right there next to you! And they are ALL mean and nasty and ugly and horrible crime-types.
I am speaking of the life of a man who knows that the world is not given by his fathers, but borrowed from his children; who has undertaken to cherish it and do it no damage, not because he is duty-bound, but because he loves the world and loves his children… - Wendell Berry, 1971
