This story is interesting. The IRS targeted “conservative” tax-exempt groups for stricter audits.
The IRS possesses a lot of power to spy on people, or just make your life miserable if they decide they don’t like you. If you say that taxes are too high, then you might face greater IRS scrutiny.
Of course, the correct answer is “All taxation is theft!” People are being outraged at IRS power being misdirected, rather than saying that power should not exist at all.
