    the OP is not a historical fact and leaves out the wilson tariff act, which if you were being honest, you would have to admit it was liberals who created the actual agency, not some temporary war funding agency

    Who gives a fuck who created it and when.

    Today it's a monstrosity and needs to be radically changed, if not abolished.

    But hey, lets just deflect all the problems going on today with idiotic distractions.

    No offense to idiots everywhere.

    :eusa_drool:

    Mani's one of those when told the Republicans ended slavery told us all they were actually folks who later became the liberal democrats so the weren't really conservatives, but liberal democrats.

    I think this one's a bit touched, I really do.

    And the founder's opted away from direct taxation and instead sought to tax commerce to run government.
