"It’s bad enough that our modern-day Caesars have devised a tax system that violates the letter and spirit of the Bill of Rights. By forcing Americans to bare the intimate details of their financial lives every April 15th, the U.S. government is in direct violation of the Fourth and Fifth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution, and the very spirit upon which this Republic was founded. As if that weren’t bad enough, it now turns out that every scrap of information that defines who we are -- birthdates, social security numbers, addresses, telephone numbers, income, expenses, stock and bond purchases and sales, property owned and taxes paid on it, we have hardly scratched the surface here -- is available to every hacker and criminal with the ability to penetrate IRS’s Maginot line of security."
