We'll touch on the many ways and levels of war tax redirection, as well as the supportive community of war tax resisters.

Alexandros of Cascadia

how is this idea ... pay your local and state tax as long as it does not go to the federal government or any of the Fascist corporations. And if your state complies to rejecting the federal government and the fascist then tip them with one third of what you would have sent to the federal.


Also do not play off your debts.. school loans, veteran loans and others

Collectively we should send a bill to Cheney and Halliburton!!!
