On November 28, 1984, IRS agents raided the Engleworld Learning Center
(a day-care center) in the Detroit suburb of Allen Park, MI, because of
overdue taxes. The IRS agents forced parents to pay the center’s taxes
when they came to pick up their children. According to the Washington Times,
“Inside were a handful of bewildered parents, unable even to see their
children until they paid money for taxes they did not owe to two IRS agents
sitting near the entrance. Allegedly, the children—as many as 30 of them—could
not run to greet their parents . . . as ordinarily was their custom. IRS
agents kept them closely guarded in Room C of the center. At least one
agent was posted in another room where pre-schoolers, some still in diapers,
were detained.” Parents were not allowed to see their children until they
signed an agreement with the IRS to pay up. Source

The problem with these sorts of things is that at the end of the day no one is ever held accountable. The gov't goes about its business and plans the next trampling of citizens' rights emboldened by yet another success.
And I believe that it is Congress that should be held accountable. They are as happy as clams to start MLB steroid investigations or NFL football videotable inqueries but anything that has merit? Nah. No thanks.
I urge people to keep this in mind come November. Our Congress has abandoned us. This became powerfully evident after the midterms. They are reponsible for protecting our rights as citizens and keeping a leash on government. They have done neither. I encourage people to de-elect every single Congressperson they can. If we can do this nationwide and with unity the message will be driven home loud and clear.
