article imageKentucky residents protest IRS

By Alex Allen     May 21, 2013 in Politics
Louisville - Opponents of the IRS and its recent targeting of conservative groups have been protesting across the nation; it's no different in the state of Kentucky where protesters took to the streets with a surprisingly Libertarian stance against the IRS.
Social and political activists in Louisville have joined numerous others across that nation in protesting the IRS after it was announced recently that they were targeting conservative and "tea party" groups. According to WHAS 11, a local ABC affiliate in the Louisville, Kentucky area, activists were waving flags and holding signs, making it very clear that they are not happy about the recent scandals surrounding the IRS.
What is surprising, however, is that the protesters took their "tea party" activism to the next level and seemed to hold a somewhat Libertarian stance on the issue, stating that the IRS itself should be abolished. One spearker apparently drew several cheers from the audience after she called the IRS an "abomination" that needs to be abolished. Others were calling for a complete overhaul of the system and the establishment of a flat tax or national sales tax rate; not neccessarily an entirely Libertarian stance but certainly taking it a step further than many conservatives have in the past.
Former Congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul of Texas recently made headlines for his statement on the IRS scandal, saying that it should be abolished 'once and for all.'
Numerous protests have been taking place across the nation, with Homeland Security even showing up at some in Florida.
