An American libertarian-oriented tax resistance movement is starting up. They’re calling it a Slave Uprising.
Two thousand years ago, a Roman Senator suggested that all slaves wear white armbands to better identify them.
“No,” said a wiser Senator, “If they see how many of them there are, they may revolt.”
Starting on , we are calling on all champions of liberty to wear a white armband to affirm your commitment to resisting tax slavery.
Campaign organizer Adam Kokesh, who is also a member of Iraq Veterans Against the War, explained: “The white band is a symbol that represents our unity and identity as citizens of the United States Empire who refuse to be slaves. The white armband is an affirmation of our commitment to resist the Federal income tax.” While the campaign has a libertarian bent, much of its rhetoric would not be out-of-place in the more left-oriented war tax resistance movement:
“I will no longer work for unjust warfare.
I will no longer work for bailouts.
I will no longer work so that I can be spied on.
I will no longer work for torture.
We refuse to be enslaved.”
They’ve also printed up “Certificates of Debt” to show people how much they individually owe as a result of the government’s deficit spending.
