EXTORTION BY TAXATION
Watch this video and see the face of government out of control. Watch and listen to Chucky "Porky" Schumer threaten to bring down on the heads of American citizens the full power of the U.S. government to tax its citizens. Apparently if Chucky and his comrades don't like what you are doing they will bring to bear all the power of their office, an office loaned to them by the American people, and use it to crush those they judge to have stepped out of line.
In the video, Chucky is threatening the AIG executives with being extorted out of their bonuses by government taxation if they do not return the bonuses to the government. I abhor the bailout mentality that has taken control of our government and I am sickened by the waste of our money. This isn't about Democrats or Republicans, its about government out of control. I don't have a lot of sympathy for these executives, but their bonuses may be legal. Certainly we need to allow the rule of law to prevail in this situation. Chucky cannot legally threaten these American citizens with extortion by taxation. The U.S. Congress can not be judge, jury, and executioner.
This is an attack on the U.S. Constitution. If these citizens can be threatened and made to buckle under to government threats we might as well tear up the constitution and go back to mob rule. What the hell is happening to our country? These people are in the process of assembling a ruling oligarchy. These executives are far from sympathetic figures, but we can not allow our elected officials to become thugs and threaten Americans from the floor of the U.S. Senate. We need to be very afraid of these kind of abuses of power. The rights of Americans are even more important in situations where the victim is despicable.
What happens when there is no one left to protect you?
