the Case of Flora v. United States
is very narrow in its ruling, as is most rulings, and deals only with the specific facts of that case, then
you are as helpless as a little lamb before the sacrificial alter. Even knowing the specific facts in regards to that case and knowing inside and out
the ruling of that case can only truly be helpful to you to question assertions made by those insisting they have jurisdiction over you in regards to
taxation of this so called "Personal Income Tax". You may be able to utter a mystical incantation and make an assertion relying upon Flora v.
and get away with it, just as Kobe Bryant may be able to make a shot from the other side of the court at the last moment and it will
actually go in the basket, but it is unlikely and should be avoided if possible, especially if that shot is necessary to win the game.
There is a reason that prosecutors are required to prove guilt and defendants not required to prove their innocence. Sometimes, when all the evidence
presented makes one look guilty it becomes necessary to prove innocence in order to avoid conviction, but in the matter of this so called "Personal
Income Tax" a willingness to prove non-liability is foolhardy at best. You are not required to prove anything and should rely on the legal means
made available to you which means that you should let they who are prosecuting you prove you are liable for and/or subject to the tax and laws in
This brings me to a very important truth about the effort to extricate oneself from the muck and mire of this so called "Personal Income Tax" and
that truth is that if anyone attempts to extricate themselves from this system, at some point they will very likely face some sort of prosecution for
tax evasion. Unless they were foolish enough to make stupid assertions upon filing a valid tax return and there a numerous people sitting in prison
today because they made some sort of claim on their valid tax return that they were not liable for the tax, or exempt from it because of this or that.
In regards to exemption, it should be understood that the only people exempt form a tax are people liable to begin with. Someone who is not liable
for a tax requires no exemption from it.
If a person is not liable for the tax and hopes to avoid harassment from the IRS by filing a valid tax return claiming they are not liable for and/or
subject to the tax and law in question will quickly discover that such an action only guarantee's harassment and in fairness to the IRS it can be
reasonably argued that a person who filed such a valid tax return with these sort of foolish "taxpayer" arguments were the ones guilty of harassment
not the IRS. I can't stress this enough, if one is not liable for the tax to begin with then why would that person file a valid tax return?
These people, many who are currently serving time in prison, who have very vocally and, in my humble opinion, foolishly challenged, not the
jurisdiction of the tax collector, but instead dared the IRS or other tax collection agency to prosecute them, may have their hearts in the right
place but they must have been standing at the end of the line when brains were being passed out and thought it was trains that were being passed out
Master Sun Tzu said there are five factors that must be considered before engaging in battle. Those five factors are:
1.) Moral Law
4.) The Commander
5.) Method and discipline
As to the moral law this is the factor that causes the people to be in complete accord with their ruler, so they will follow him regardless of their
lives, not at all perplexed by any danger. In terms of the IRS, those people in complete accord with their ruler are the tax collectors and they are
not at all living in fear for their lives nor are they concerned of any danger. They are backed by an insurmountable army and you, anyone of you who
would dare challenge the authority of the IRS, are all alone.
As to Heaven, this signifies the seasons and the time, such as night and day, and cold and heat. In terms of the IRS, I assure you they know what
time of day it is and they know how hot or cold things can get, do you?
As to Earth, this consists of the distances, far and near, the security of landscape and the dangers, the open battle field and the narrow
passageways, the matters of life and death, or in terms of the IRS, the matter of conviction or acquittal. When challenging the IRS, the battle
always begins in the open battlefields where it easy to see your opponent and the numbers that you face. For them they are many and for you, you are
alone, it is therefore better to do battle in the narrow passages of the sacred halls of justice. Let them bring the battle to you while you defend,
do not take the battle to them.
As to the commander, they stand for all that is virtuous, or not, all that is wise, or not, all that is benevolent, or not, all that is strict, or
not, and all that is courageous, or not. For the IRS, it is up to you to decide if their commander is indeed virtuous, wise, benevolent, strict and
courageous and then it is up to you to compare that to your own virtue, wisdom, benevolence, strictness and courage. If there is any chink in your
opponents army it lies here with the commander, who is rarely visible and even harder to know who he is. Like the great and powerful Oz he hides
behind a curtain and appears usually in the form of a disembodied head that huffs and puffs and appears to be more strict than benevolent, more
courageous than either wise or virtuous and rules by primarily fear. Not so much over his own army but over those he hopes to rule.
As to the method and discipline, this means the marshaling of the army into its proper subdivisions, the scales of gradation in terms of rank of
officers and those below that, the maintenance of roads by which they may access their supplies and control of expenditures. They have vasts amount
of money to fight you, they have the proper subdivisions all in place to ensure any necessary plausible denial-ability, they have vast amounts of
resources that you do not have.
When all this is considered and accurately determined you can know who will win.
