Lawsuit against the IRS?
« on: July 12, 2016, 03:25:09 AM »
Is the idea that taxation is theft arguable in court? Would replevin apply? I'm just spit-balling but it was an idea I had earlier today. I think such a legal campaign could easily be funded through crowd funding, many more groups than voluntaryists are against the income tax. What do you guys think? Am I just crazy?

Do not forget that each failed claim, at any level, becomes the next claim's precedent. Electoral resistance to the income tax has increased dramatically over the past decade. Put the two together, and using the political process rather than courts is both safer in terms of consequences and more likely to have success.

Failed court claims filed for just cause do permanent damage. Political damage is repairable.

Also, filing suit (unlike defending against one) implies, rightly, that it is unethical not to abide by the result. The plaintiff is the one asking the judiciary to decide the matter.
