"You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children's children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done."
Ronald Reagan

Scottie Hughes - Tea Party Profiling by the IRS

The IRS acknowledging that it targeted conservative political groups during the 2012 election season has sparked bipartisan calls for investigation -- with House Republicans already saying they will hold a hearing on the issue.

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor said Friday the Republican-led chamber would investigate the tax-collecting agency for flagging the groups for additional review to see whether they were violating their tax-exempt status.

“The IRS cannot target or intimidate any individual or organization based on their political beliefs,” the Virginia Republican said.

Obama's Tactics - coercion - intimidation - threats:One of Barack Obama’s tasks at ACORN, where he worked with Madeline Talbott, was teaching community activists how to use “direct action” and be more forceful in demanding change.

The “in your face” style preached by Barack Obama was used by activists to stage sit-ins and demonstrations at banks to garner publicity and support for more bank loans for (sometimes unqualified) poor people.

ACORN Tactics included picketing at the homes of bank executives and calling them racists for not lending to the poor.
