War Tax Resistance IS Courage

“If a thousand men were not to pay their tax-bills this year, that would not be a violent and bloody measure, as it would be to pay them, and enable the State to commit violence and shed innocent blood. This is, in fact, the definition of a peaceable revolution, if any such is possible.”

Henry David Thoreau

  2. I plan to call in. I found out about this on The Picket Line, a blog by David Gross that focuses on war tax resistance. It's worth taking a look:
