No Taxation Without Representation

This petition had 51 supporters

This is a national movement not to pay federal taxes in the future. We the People are putting Republican Party on notice: You do not have the right to impose a hard-right, second-place presidency on a moderate nation every dozen or so years.

If the Republican Party will not amend the Constitution so that America can resume being a democracy, then We the People, lacking the representation that supporters of a future popular vote-winner ought to have in the executive branch, should not submit to paying taxes to the federal government.

We would still pay state, local, sales and property taxes. This is a protest against our 229-year-old system of electoral votes, not against taxation in general.

If a Republican wins the election without winning the popular vote again, we will still pay what we owe in federal taxes—just not to the IRS. Instead, We the People will compute their federal taxes, file a Form 1040 and write a check to a national escrow account, in a well-established Canadian or British bank that is beyond the reach of the U.S. Justice Department.  “Funds to be transferred to the IRS as soon as America resumes being a democracy.”

The U.S. government will have access to the funds in this escrow account, only if and when, you have replaced our antiquated electoral system with a fairer way of electing presidents.  When 38 state legislatures have ratified an acceptable Constitutional amendment, the escrow officer will transfer the account’s trillions of dollars to the IRS.
