I rather like the Birdman's approach*.  How many of the guvmint's minions would continue to content themselves in fastening the chains around their countrymen's necks at the hazard of their own life and limb?   Have you read Unintended Consequences by John Ross?  A novel (fiction) about how the Birdman's thesis could be played out.

TRUTH ATTACK!

*NEWS FROM THE FRONT*

*TRUTH ATTACK TURNS UP THE HEAT *

*AND IR'SS' REACTS WITH "TAXDEF"*

*—TIME TO RE-RAISE—*

*/ /*

*/TRUTH TROOPERS HAVE BEEN SPREADING THE TRUTH!/*

*/OVER ONE MILLION LETTERS HAVE HIT GOVERNMENT DESKS, LETTING GOVERNMENT
KNOW THAT WE KNOW!/*

*/OPERATION STOP THIEF GETS MESSAGE TO MILLIONS!!/*

*/IRS RESPONDS WITH RASH OF INDICTMENTS, GAG ORDERS AND FORMS "TAXDEF"
TASK FORCE IN DESPERATION!!/*

* *

The IRS is feeling the heat TA and its allied organizations have been
generating and it is reacting by ramping up its criminal prosecutions,
pursuing more abusive 6700 'gag order' suits and now it has called in
all other agencies to assist in harassing and obstructing the flow of
the truth. It seems that every week brings news of another indictment or
another suit claiming that telling the truth about the tax law is an
"abusive tax shelter". Orders to turn over membership lists have
provided a new source of "usual suspects" and the IR"SS" brown shirts
are storming patriot households with administrative and criminal
actions. Even the post office is getting involved, recently freezing
mail to TA coalition member Free Enterprise Society offices.

*This response means that we are doing exactly what we need to be doing
because the squadron getting the most flak is always the one over the
target.* They aren't afraid of us in court because they own the courts,
but they are terrified of what we are now doing, going to their ultimate
worldly court, *the People.*

Truth Attack has opened fronts on their flank and rear, their lies and
myths, where they have no teeth, no talons, no way to strike back,
because in a 'truth fight' they are empty-handed. This is exactly why TA
stresses that you do not need to take the beast on in its cave by
refusing to file or trying some filing method to defeat the tax. It can
hurt you in the cave but it cannot do anything to you for telling others
the truth, for exercising your God-given right to free speech to reclaim
your God-given right to earn a living—to keep the fruits of your own labor.

So, what do we do? They're squirming and squealing just from our initial
efforts, so let's turn up the heat some more and see if they can turn
their heads 360!!

*TRUTH ATTACK ANNOUNCES *

*AMERICAN LIBERTY COUNCIL 2008! *

/ /

/ALL FREEDOM MOVEMENT ORGANIZATIONS TO ASSEMBLE FOR UNVEILING OF TRUTH
ATTACK'S OVERALL PLAN /

/TO SAVE OUR COUNTRY FROM THE GOVERNMENT /

/AND OUR GOVERNMENT FROM ITSELF/

*/AND YOU CAN HELP MAKE THIS COUNCIL A SUCCESS/*

The beast is on the run, it's beginning to tremble and sweat, and that
means it's time to charge forward.

Patriots have been fighting the growth and expansion of our bloated,
power crazed federal government for years, but just as Thomas Jefferson
warned, the giant continues to grow and increase its power at the
expense of our liberty. And just as it was obvious in "Jaws" that "We're
going to need a bigger boat", it is obvious that we need all the help we
can get, especially now that we are organized and taking action.

We know that forcing the IRS to obey the law, to cease applying the
income tax to those who are not liable for the tax, is not going to make
the federal government withdraw within its Constitutional confines. But
we also know, and the rest of the Freedom Movement knows, that when we
can succeed in doing so it will advance the entire movement a huge step
forward, gain millions of grateful supporters and force Americans to
accept the fact that our government cannot be trusted. All issues,
taxes, gun rights, religious freedom, states' rights, and on and on,
benefit from every success in every quarter because the Freedom Movement
is strengthened and the government is weakened.

We also know that if we and the rest of the Freedom Movement continue to
fight as we have been fighting the government will continue to grow
stronger and we will continue to grow weaker, continue to fail and lose
ground, the government marching on and over our rights, trampling them
underfoot. The government has united its many agencies in its efforts
against us, forming "Tax-Def". *It is way past time for the Freedom
Movement to do the same, what the Tax Honesty Community has already
done—_curl its easily broken fingers into a formidable fist_.*

*We have to change what we do to change the result we get and that is
where TA's AMERICAN LIBERTY COUNCIL 2008 comes in*. Truth Attack is
inviting all verified Freedom Movement organizations we can find to send
representatives to Houston, Texas, on October 11, 2008, where TA will
for the first time present its comprehensive plan to put the government
back in its box—ONE TENTACLE AT A TIME. This plan begins with the
unification of the Freedom Movement and its fighting not only together,
but smart. This is no time for the Ted Mack Amateur Hour.

*The general concept* is very simple. Imagine a playground where a gang
of bullies is abusing and terrorizing the rest of the kids. The children
are helpless because the gang is stronger and bigger than they, but if
some of those kids can join forces and single out one of the bullies,
they can beat the daylights out of him. Other kids seeing this happen
will become emboldened, excited about the successful ejection of the
bully, and join forces with the initial group. Larger, stronger, they
then single out another bully for similar treatment, then another.

None of the groups, most confining their efforts to a single issue, are
strong enough to take on and defeat the federal gang of bullies, but
united, acting according to a well-reasoned and well-executed plan, a
unified Freedom Movement can defeat one of the bullies, starting with
the government's Rottweiller, the IRS and its illegal application of the
income tax to working families and households.

That accomplished, the new 'gang' in town, the People, encouraged by
success and reinforced in number, the government's credibility and
financial resources clipped, we pick out another bully, the Federal
Reserve—then we restore sound money—then take out the alphabet soup,
ATF, DOE, and so on. By this time the Freedom Movement will involve
almost every kid on the playground and we will have the political means
to purge Congress, replacing the usurpers with more Ron Pauls until
Congress once again looks to its people for ways to serve, rather than
for ways to rule, its master, the people.

*BUT: Until the last tentacle is crammed back into the box and the box
securely nailed shut, none of our rights is safe and the job remains
unfinished. That is why the Freedom Movement MUST act as one, because
every right is precious and every tentacle is a threat, capable of
destroying any and all of our rights.*

*What you can do to help*

Truth Attack has assembled a mailing list of over 500 organizations and
members of what is left of the free media. Almost 200 of those
organizations are veterans' groups that want in on the fight to restore
what they have already sacrificed much to preserve. AVIDD, American
Veterans in Domestic Defense, a coalition of veterans' organizations
headed up by Jim Cabaniss, who has been a tremendous help in making this
Council happen, has put all its weight behind the Council.

Ron Paul has expressed his support for the Council's concept and plan.

* But there are many, many more organizations out there who need to
receive an invitation to this historic assembly of all the "tribes".*

If you know of any such organizations *please send us a note with as
much information on them as you can*, web sites, contact persons, their
issues and—very important—their mailing addresses, so we can verify them
and issue an invitation to them. Time is short because we do not know
when it will be too late, so please act on this request today. Please
send your info to hq@truthattack.org <mailto:hq@truthattack.org>.

*You can also help with the financial burden of hosting this Council.*
TA is keeping the registration fee at a minimum in order to encourage as
many groups as possible to participate and it is more likely than not
going to end up in the red. That expense is, no doubt, a very worthwhile
investment. So, if you can, please contribute
<http://truthattack.org/page3.php> something toward our investment.

Finally, Liberty Works Radio Network
<http://www.libertyworksradionetwork.com/jml/index.php> plays a vital
role in TA's overall plan and its specific tactical approach to putting
the government back in its box. The American Revolution could not have
succeeded without a free and dedicated press, spreading the truth,
inspiring the population to stand up for its rights, lifting the morale
and spirits of the troops. *LWRN needs your help to get started.*
