JOHN STOSSEL ~ IRS Selective Targeting

In recent years, we have witnessed arrogant exploitation of power by the Department of Interior and the EPA as they push their political agendas. And now we've found out that the most feared government agency of all, the IRS, has engaged in direct partisan activity by selectively targeting private citizens who speak out for liberty, constitutional government, or free enterprise. The framers of our Constitution would not be surprised that government agencies, left unchecked, could use their powers for castigation and harassment. Of all government agencies, the IRS needs extraordinary oversight because of how it is uniquely empowered with the capacity to single out individuals for punishment.
