Cindy Sheehan Threatens to Sign Petition Asking I.R.S. to Audit Her

Cindy Sheehan announced that she wasn’t going to pay her taxes back in , but I haven’t heard much about her tax resistance stand since. I worried that maybe she’d lost her enthusiasm for that protest technique.

But one of the ever-valiant internet hawk squadron started an on-line petition begging the IRS to have Sheehan audited for her treacherous stand. That did it.

I have publicly said for months that I am not paying my income taxes.

Since my husband and I spilt and he filed separately, and I didn’t make one penny in , I don’t think I owe any, anyway.

I welcome the chance to go to trial, or be audited for not paying my taxes.

Then I can tell the world why:

George Bush and his lying bunch of criminal neocons deceived the world into an illegal and immoral invasion of a country that was no threat to the USA. My oldest, dearest son is dead because of their lies. Give me back Casey and I’ll pay your damn taxes.

I also think it is immoral to pay taxes to feed the War Department and to fund more killing.

If these people think they are hurting me by their petition, I smile. I am thinking of signing it myself.

David Lazarus at the San Francisco Chronicle did a nice piece on phone tax resistance today.
