LETTER: It’s inevitable that IRS hiring will lead to ‘gulags, guillotines’

To Ozaukee Press:

Could anyone have dreamed that our representatives in Congress would actually vote to recruit, not more local police or ICE agents, but an army of 87,000 more IRS agents?

  Let no one believe that their party, ethnicity or gender will protect them. The clueless academics, mindless tech moguls, vacuous journalists and venial politicians who cheer the unlimited expansion of government power should know from history, if not common sense, that they too will be victims. The progression is all too familiar. The daily shakedowns lead to plundering “the rich,” followed by shortages and desperate wage price controls that trigger mass arrests of uncooperative “insurrectionists.” Then come the gulags, the firing squads and the guillotines.

This is all predictable and inevitable unless the citizens have the courage to act before it’s too late. This blatant vote to add 87,000 IRS agents tells us that it is very late.
