The indications are getting stronger by the day that Colleen M. Kelley, President of the National Treasury Employees Union, could shed a lot of light on the abuse by the IRS of Tea Party, “patriot” and conservative organizations and other opponents of the Obama administration -- if she testifies before Congress under oath.
In Part IV of "Why I'm A Conservative, Not A Libertarian," Writer Ben Hart says he's a "William F. Buckely, Jr. conservative" and argues that conservatives aren’t driven by ideology the way libertarians are. Thus, if the free market isn’t working in certain areas, conservatives reserve the right to make adjustments, to patch it up, and to make rules that make the economy work better.

This time the big government liberals have really outsmarted themselves and given the Tea Party movement a great recruiting tool in the process. By using the IRS to discriminate against the Tea Party, they’ve demonstrated to the average American what the logical conclusion of Obama-style big government is -- and most Americans want no part of it. Tea Party Patriots announce protests outside of IRS Offices nationwide this Tuesday -- that's tomorrow, May 21. For details go to: http://www.teapartypatriots.org/irs-protests/.

Please sign our petition demanding compensation for IRS targeted conservatives, then call conservative and Tea Party Senators (Capitol switchboard is 1-866-220-0044) and urge them take the lead in drafting and swiftly enacting legislation that reimburses IRS-targeted conservative groups and individual donors for this government lawbreaking.
We think that Congress must pass legislation to compensate victims of the IRS's abuse of opponents of the Obama administration that, at a minimum, allows for the reimbursement of attorney’s fees, CPA and other tax preparer fees, as well as expressly allowing the victims to seek damages for the violation of their constitutional rights.
Those who were abused by the IRS due to their policy differences with the Obama administration should be made whole by reimbursing them for their out-of-pocket costs and for other damages they suffered at the hands of the Obama IRS. Please sign our petition urging Republican and Tea Party Senators to swiftly introduce such legislation.
The most extreme social engineering experiment in all of human history, one purposefully designed to fundamentally alter our country, is not being led and sold to the American people by a left-wing ideologue, it is being shoved down our throats by Republican Senator Marco Rubio.
In Part III of "Why I'm A Conservative, Not A Libertarian," Writer Ben Hart says he's a "William F. Buckely, Jr. conservative." Arguing that the libertarian credo is not a practical charter for government, Hart outlines what a conservative government-backed social safety net could look like.
