If you've read our stuff, you'll know we're not fans of an all-powerful government only accountable to itself. History and common sense give a good idea of

Oh Suk Kwon, 73, a South Korea immigrant who came to the U.S. back in the 1970s and served four years as a fleet mechanic in the U.S. army, bought a gas station in Maryland in 2007 following decades of work at an electrical plant as an auto mechanic.
But just several years after opening the gas station, IRS investigators seized all the station’s cash – more than $59,000 – leaving the Kwon family cash-strapped, even though no evidence of criminal wrongdoing was found by the government, the paper reported.
After the IRS investigation ended, the station went bankrupt, Kwon’s wife passed away, and the IRS changed its policy regarding seizures like this; but the agency is still refusing to hand back Kwon his money.
Wow. Ron Swanson's wise words have never seemed more relevant.
So, this chap is an immigrant veteran who came up from nothing and built a respectable business. That's about as American as it gets. In walks the IRS, who seize everything the guy built at gunpoint, before concluding he did nothing wrong. When the chap asks for the return of his lawfully-earned greenbacks? "Nah bruh, your cheddar's ours now. Enjoy that bankruptcy, tho."
This is the world the left wants. The government has unlimited power and everything you own belongs to them if you get on their bad side. Because reasons. It's this and many other reasons why we should keep that senile lawn gnome, Bernie Sanders, far far away from the Oval Office.
