Not a night goes by when I do not think about it as I craw in my warm bed beside my sweet wife of 35 years.
“Will this be the night that the black limos pull in my driveway? Is this the night that the SWAT Team goons bust down my door and haul me off to the slammer?”
I am being dead serious. I really do think about it every night because that is what they did to Dr. Kent Hovind.
Permit me to say right up front that I have no intention of committing suicide. I am madly in love with my wife, enjoy the time I spend with family and friends, and look forward to watching my grandchildren grow up around my feet.
To the best of my ability I obey the laws of the nation, no matter how tyrannical I believe some of them to be, while I do my best to speak the Truth in such a way as my Savior would be honored by my life.
But my outspoken style rubs many the wrong way, especially those who hold positions in the Government. Every time I type a word on my keyboard I wonder just who is going to be offended by what I say and across who’s desk will my commentary be passed.
George Washington said, “Government is not reason, nor eloquence. It is force. And like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearsome master.” The IRS has ruined Dr. Kent Hovind’s life.
It is a sad time in America when we are in fear of our government. You need look no further than what Lois Lerner did with the hammer of the IRS. We are all just one audit away from destruction.
Does anyone really understand the tax code? Do you ever think twice when filing your tax returns as to whether or not your deductions and write-offs are in full compliance with the IRS code? How do you defend yourself from such a maize of tax-law and an army of government bureaucrats?
When government reaches the point where they profit off of law-breaking we have reached a dangerous place. Government should be about seeking “justice” not enforcing laws. Today, law-breaking is big business for the government.
Once the government finds out that they can increase their largess by “fining” citizens for code violations we can only expect more code violations will be levied.
Prison is a place for violent, hardened criminals. It is not a place for people who simply violate codes statutes, and ordinances. Sentencing to prison a non-violent individual simply for breaking a “law” is inhuman. It is, in fact, a life sentence in that it destroys the perpetrator, the family, and the financial future of the family. The punishment does not fit the crime. Restitution…paying back the victim plus damages…is the solution spelled out in the Bible.
Kent Hovind is a perfect example of the tyranny of the legal system. Known lovingly as Dr. Dino because of his affinity for dinosaurs, he is one of the nations foremost apologist for Creation Science. The internet is full of free videos of him presenting seminars where he destroys the phony science of evolution….
But this week, Dr. Dino has just completed his 99th month in Federal Prison for what the government claims was violation of the IRS tax code….
In many ways Kent Hovind is a political prisoner. It was what you would expect in a communist country like North Korea.
While in jail Dr. Hovind has led thousands to saving faith in Jesus Christ. He conducts 4 Bible studies a day for the inmates. He has written 37 books. He has been married for 40 years. He has grandchildren that he has never held.
Meanwhile Al Sharpton is invited to the White House, and hosts his own television show on MSNBC while owing over $4.5 million in taxes. Former Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner got off Scot-free by blaming Turbo Tax….
