Conspiracy Theories

Those who follow the "tax protestor" -- actually, tax denial -- movement know they are deeply conspiratorial. Everything is part of an awful conspiracy, including the exact typeface used on letters they receive. In the immortal words of Aldous Huxley, paranoids live "in a world of terrifying significance."

While it is possible that some of the people who believe in conspiracy theory are actually paranoid (in the clinical sense), for most it fills some other psychological need -- in paricular, the need to explain away the inevitable failures and disappointments of life as a nefarious plot against them, and the need to feel important for being "in on the secret".

For this, any conspiracy theory will do. It is no surprise that tax protestors often believe in many other conspiracies -- such as in The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion (or its modern equivalents, replacing "Jews control the world" with "Zionists control the USA"), 9/11 conspiracy theories (decisively exploded here, for example), and so on.

First off, conspiracies grow when concerns are not addressed openly and honestly by those entrusted with power. This can happen anywhere, like within a family, a business, a club, a church or a government. Your simple brush off concerns me because it doesn't address the root of the problem, it just says that if you have doubt of any sort you have mental issues and need to get on medication. However, doubts are healthy and require debate to work through issues and to build and develop understanding and ensure peace. The idea that concerned citizens who are getting ignored by their government are nutcases gives me the notion that either you, yourself lack understanding of human behavior and philosophy or you have something to gain from a government who will not openly discuss citizen's concerns. Which one is it?

Conspiracy Is NOT a theory.

Our presidents and congressmen and senators have warned us almost from the start of this nation about banking, the press, jesuits, corporations, masons, the military-industrial complex, non-profit foundations, and more. There is plenty to read in the congressional record. There is plenty of video testimony from principal players such as our own politicians that you can watch on google or youtube.

Are they "Kooky Conspiracy Theorists"???

There is testimony on youtube of one of the top navy brass from pearl harbor that our government withheld information from the navy that they had known for weeks that the attack would happen. On that basis, we entered WWII. OUR GOVERNMENT PLANNED FOR OUR CITIZENS TO BE KILLED.

There is testimony from Macnamara on youtube that the "Gulf of Tonkin Incident" never happened. For that we went to vietnam. OUR GOVERNMENT PLANNED FOR OUR CITIZENS TO BE KILLED.

Operation Northwoods is a declassified document from the early 1960's. In it the joint chiefs of staff planned to get us into a war with Cuba. It involved the faked downing of a jet fighter and the real downing of a plane that was supposed to have students on it (they were to repaint a government plane to look like a civilian airliner). They were also planning to set off real bombs in american cities killing real people in the process. AGAIN - OUR GOVERNMENT PLANNING TO KILL OUR CITIZENS.

I have no doubt that our government was intimately involved in 9/11 to create a reason to go to war in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Those wars are about OIL PIPELINES and WAR PROFITEERING. The two towers were blown up as a
"new pearl harbor". Building 7 was like any other controlled demolition - it came straight down into it's own footprint - it wasn't hit. The feds were warned again and again by our own FBI and intelligence agencies that this was going to happen but they were thwarted at every turn by superiors who told them to drop it. Those terrorists did not have access to the WTC buildings for weeks to install explosives neccessary to bring them down. The security company for the wtc had to be involved. What do we find? The 2 companies that had the security contracts prior to 9/11 were securacom (also known as Stratasec) and another named Kroll. Securacom/Stratasec had some very interesting people their board. Would you believe G.W. Bush's younger brother Marvin and a cousin named Wirt Walker (as in George Herbert WALKER Bush)???? I got that information soon after the attack from Yahoo Finance SEC information.

Why, if you go the the FBI website's "MOST WANTED" page, does it not say that Osama Bin Laden is wanted for 9/11? He is there, but not for 9/11.





That was forgotten in all of the 9/11 hubbub.

Here is a proven theory about the Rockefeller family being part of a conspiracy.

Go buy the book "Memoirs" by David Rockefeller. Here is his confession.

" For more than a century, ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized
incidents to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and
economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure - one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it

"Theories" - HAH!

Doubt is fine, but when proposed theories are completely debunked over and over again, they gain the status of conspiracy theories and the people that insist on pushing them despite being discredited lose credibility.
David Ray Griffin and his ilk are making a bunch of money off of credulous people.

Conspiracy theorist don't doubt. They don't have an open mind. They KNOW everybody who disagrees with their favorite conspiracy is lying and evil. They KNOW their favorite conspiracy is THE TRUTH(tm). All this "we just want answers" is a facade -- the truth is, they just want answers THAT AGREE WITH WHAT THEY ALREADY BELIEVE. No other answer will be acceptable to them.

Wow, it only took two posts for a spluttering, frothing, diahrettic conspiracy nutjob to appear.

To the other commenters: If I am a conspiracy "nutjob" then go ahead and disprove what I have stated. You can say anything you want about me, but you can't disprove facts.

what conspiracy theory has been debunked? I've still yet to see any IRS official or government official point to the exact place in title 26 that shows united states citizens that reside within the states are liable for an income tax. Sub Title A does not show the liability. Nor does title 26 define "INCOME" I love watching you quacks further destroy the republic.

If anyone is the conspiracy theory nut its those who would try to have you believe that title 26 is legal.

And don't give me the bullshit argument about, "Look at the tax courts" well shit, of course there going to protect the corporation that pays there paycheck. Its fraud when a court doesn't allow certain evdience into the record.

How can a tax protester be illegal in the first place? Last I checked our first amendment right is to PROTEST.

The idiocy here is fleeting. Anywho, now open up the, Your an idiot type comments, don't bother doing any real investigation, just keep believing what mass media tells you.

If you perpetuate the fraud it is you who is the enemy.

>>>>>>How can a tax protester be illegal in the first place? Last I checked our first amendment right is to PROTEST.

That's absolutely correct. You have every right to protest your taxes. Many people do. You can also vote for someone who promises to lower, or even eliminate, them. You can run yourself on such a platform.

That's why I said that they are "actually tax deniers", not tax protesters. They don't PROTEST taxes -- they deny they need to pay taxes.
