    The IRS Backs Down

    The IRS will now delay new regulations that would have stifled your free speech rights.

    After months of deliberations, the IRS plans to go back to square one and start over on their anti-political speech regulations. Due to the incredible volume of comments grassroots activists across the country submitted, the bureaucrats at the tax agency were forced to halt their plans. They had no choice but to listen to the voice of the people.

    If the regulations passed, the IRS would have suppressed the free speech rights of millions of citizens across the country. Make no mistake: this was a deliberate effort to silence the views of ordinary Americans who want to petition their government.

    Luckily, activists wouldn't stand for this radical power grab and sent over 150,000 messages to the IRS protesting the new rules - a record amount.

    But the IRS’s new rules aren’t defeated yet. The bureaucrats will go back to work, trying to undermine the Constitution and Bill of Rights. As citizens, it is our job to be ever-vigilant of the government’s efforts to crush our freedom.
