    . . . is that being anti-American or a revolutionary?


    He has a construction business and he is a vendor of fresh juice beverages in a big city in Massachusetts . . . and pays zero zip on taxes.

    He claims it is legal to opt out of paying them if you emancipate yourself.

    is this true?

    It's not as bad as pretending to be a teenage girl on the internet.

    yeah, but this guy tells me he legally "emancipated" himself from paying taxes.

    Nothing on the internet tells me that it is possible. If paying taxes was an option, why would they threaten imprisonment, or make you pay penalties and fines for something that is an option?

    the emancipation movement is a bunch of loons who read a book and think they can tell the govt to fuck off. it's not a white thing either. some black guys do it to.

    a bunch of geniuses.

    I saw a black guy on the tv show Parking Wars try to tell a cop that the city couldn't boot his car because he was a "sovereign citizen" and didn't have to follow the laws of the US.
