IRS SCANDAL UPDATE: Investor’s Business Daily: Ben Carson’s IRS Audit Can’t Possibly Be Coincidence.
This is not a coincidence, any more than awakening with a severed horse’s head in your bed after being made “an offer you can’t refuse” is.
Someone — either within the IRS bureaucracy or above it — saw what Carson did, didn’t like it, and decided to make him pay. The American people must know who it was.
And there are two other crucial points to the victimization of this man who personifies the American Dream.
First, when a government is as big as ours has become, outrageous abuse from the soldiers of its financing machinery is inevitable, especially within a governmental climate that encourages it.
Second, there is no excuse for a president who’s been in office for more than four years failing to ensure that such outrages couldn’t happen.
Whether or not Obama instigated IRS abuse for political objectives, he is responsible for a culture within the bureaucracy that tolerated and even encouraged it.
