This is a classical argument for the 8 6 1 statue, which is not typically allowed any longer as an argument in court. I believe it has been determined by the IRS and several Judges as being frivolous.
Karen Rose takes you along on a true detective story and spells out the history and detailed legal arguments for how the tax code has been manipulated and the laws hidden from the public over the years by the IRS. The detail he goes to in explaining his position and the law is compelling and detailed, and while extremely complex, it is written for a layman to understand. Even now, if you try to propose the same arguments (eight sixty one) in court you may be jailed and fined. Larken Rose goes into horrifying yet humorous details of how he openly challenged the IRS, how they kicked in his front door, harassed and threatened him and his family, destroyed his business and life, how they manipulated the court trials, jailed him, and then publicized their win as a warning to all others who think they can use the law (as intended by the US Congress) in court.
According to Rose:
Much like the famous Schiff trial, where the judge was quoted as stating "... I will not allow the law in my court!...", Larken was set up to loose from day one. He thought by challenging the IRS in court and letting Americans see the true nature of the tax laws it would open of flood gate of tax protests.Read more ›
Attached is a full page ad that he ran in newspapers in 2001.
Wow ... this man has 'cajones'. @@!!
The book shows, in excruciating detail .... while at the same time being quite humorous, that, depite thousands of letters, meetings, talk shows, law suits ... the IRS simply will NOT answer a simple question from one of its own regulations ( reg 861), concerning how to determine 'taxable income'. They refuse to answer the question because, to do so, would show millions, clearly, that they do not owe taxes.
Paying taxes is just another huge con job impressed upon the slaves (U.S. citizen) by blanket media propaganda or ubiquitous 'non-coverage' of key arguments and assertions, combined with extortionate demands backed up by guns and force.
In the end, sorrowfully, the 'justice' system let another American down.
Larken was imprisoned for 15? months.
His web site have been taken down.
This book is hard to find.
The elite do have a habit of getting their way.
Despite all this Larken continues to lambaste the bastards every chance he gets.
I will die happy if I just do 1/1000th of what this man has done.
I suggest, again, that everyone repudiate this de-facto, corrupt, illegit, government.
* repudiate your voter registration, it is a contract for slavery
* correct your standing with the govt via an affidavit to the State Dept. Assert that you are NOT a U.S. citizen (slave)
* examine closely all other contracts signed or presumptively engaged in.Read more ›
and this is supposed to be land of the free, home of the brave.

This was a well written account of a tax protestor. It was enjoyable to read and a very fascinating experience. I can't recommend any book by this author enough.Published 17 months ago by Robert Spencer
