Thanks to Mikkeluna’s thoughts for calling attention to The Mega-Lie Called the “War on Terror”: A Masterpiece of Propaganda by Richard W. Behan, AlterNet, September 27, 2007. This article contains a concise history of Bush’s and Cheney’s pre-9/11 plans to invade both Afghanistan and Iraq, for which 9/11 then provided a convenient excuse.
“Mikkelina’s thoughts” is a blog here on WordPress which contains posts in support of the 9/11 Truth movement. I was glad to see that it also contains posts that appear to be somewhat left-leaning, including When will the American people yell: ENOUGH!, in which Mikkelina endorses Michael Moore’s call for universal healthcare, and Governor Schwarzenegger: Sie sollten sich schämen!
But then, I found an earlier post in which even Mikkelina got sucked up into the anti-tax mania: Aaron Russo, Ron Paul, the problems of the Federal Reserve. As if it were possible to have even a big-city fire department, let alone universal healthcare, without taxes! Mikkelina repeats the claims, all too common among people in the 9/11 Truth movement these days, about how the income tax is supposedly illegal. Mikkelina, please see the following Wikipedia articles, for starters:
- Tax protester constitutional arguments
- Tax protester statutory arguments
- Internal Revenue Code
- Income tax in the United States
- Sixteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution
