What Would The Founders Do?

"Who is Chris Hedges? Not only was he a New York Times reporter for 15 years, he was its Middle East bureau chief in the 1990's." CWCID: NRO.

Can you say Walter Duranty?

Here is the latest example of his drivel published in The Nation:

"I will not pay my income tax if we go to war with Iran. I realize this is a desperate and perhaps futile gesture. But an attack on Iran--which appears increasingly likely before the coming presidential election--will unleash a regional conflict of catastrophic proportions. This war, and especially Iranian retaliatory strikes on American targets, will be used to silence domestic dissent and abolish what is left of our civil liberties. It will solidify the slow-motion coup d'├ętat that has been under way since the 9/11 attacks. It could mean the death of the Republic."

Would you like some cheese with that whine?

I mean, seriously - "I will not pay my income tax"? If the fate of the Republic is at stake, I am fairly sure tax court isn't the appropriate venue to decide it's future. At the very least, have the testicular fortitude of your convictions and, oh wait a minute, you don't believe in the Second Amendment either, I'll wager.

Mr. Hedges, I think your side is already at a distinct disadvantage.
