Who knew that I would be a victim of the oppressive attacks of the IRS on people of conservative values and Christian faith. But I have, and it is a personal stinging reminder of how terribly close we are to losing all of our freedoms.
Like many readers of my column, I have been watching accelerated attacks against Constitutional government, free speech, free markets, freedom of religion – you name it, we have lost much over the last few years.
Even so, I wasn’t expecting that I would be caught up in the latest scandal to rock the Obama Administration. But I am not surprised to find out that Obama, et al are pinning the Nazi-like tactics on government bureaucrats deep in the bowels of the Internal Revenue Service.
The IRS last week offered a tepid apology for “inappropriate” actions by two low-level employees in Cincinnati, who subjected “about 75” conservative organizations to “extra inquiry” before deciding their eligibility for tax-exempt status.
Ho-hum. Just a case of well-meaning bureaucratic excess, right?
