John Deeth Blog: Ron Paul, Tom Tancredo, and Tax Protesters

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

Tom Tancredo is now calling on Iowans for Tax Relief and the Iowa
Christian Alliance to reconsider and invite Ron Paul to Saturday's
debate. Maybe he thinks this wins some points from the Paul People,
but I doubt it. I would think the libertarian position on immigration
would be open the borders and let employers hire who they want -- the
diametric opposite of Tancredo's "stop legal immigration" view. Paul,
meanwhile, has taken up the cause of two New Hampshire tax protesters:
'Paul expressed his sympathy for Ed and Elaine Brown, who have been
holed up in their hilltop home for several months, threatening
violence if marshals come to arrest them. The Browns have each been
sentenced to 63 months in prison for crimes related to their refusal
to pay federal income taxes for nearly 10 years. The Browns contend
that there is no law compelling Americans to pay income taxes.' On
which count they are so so wrong, says attorney Daniel Evans in an
exhaustive tax protester FAQ. In the Concord (NH) Monitor: "People who
point this out and fight the tax code and fight the monetary code are
heroic," Paul said in a video that's been linked to several pro-Brown
websites.
