With all due respect, this is the thinking that keeps the IRS alive. The Republicans don't want to eliminate it, or even shrink it. They never have. Nevertheless, the myth that they stand for smaller government persists, and they use that to stay in power.
Here's the truth of the matter: To the Republicans (and Democrats) you are nobody. You're nothing but tax livestock, intended to be corralled under more laws than any other country on Earth, and milked for your money. Unless you contribute enormous sums of money to them personally, they don't care anything about you, your life, or how the government interferes with your hopes and dreams.
Recognize that, and be liberated.
