We get spun up, there is no justice, and apathy sets in. What's the point of truth if there is no remedy for injustice?

I love this logic. Just wait for it, it will happen any minute now, wait for it, wait for it...

The good news is that the measurements of time you are talking about are inconcievable to the life of a man. It would be like a May fly worrying about what to wear on New Year's Eve.
I think so but I also think there would be a lot of people who would be unprepared to pay their tax bill. I also think it would make more people realize how much money they are giving to the government every year. I hope people would then seriously question the role of government and how much is appropriate at what level.
The one deduction we should fight tooth and nail to keep is the charitable deduction. There is a need for these services. If charitable organizations are starved of their funds, there would be a call for government to fill the role, then guess what. Those once voluntary deductions would now become a mandatory one as governments would look to meet the demand. And I would suspect, they'd be a lot less efficient and effective than these private organizations.
Here's the solution. Eliminate withholdings and make everyone pay their tax bill at the end of the year. Right now, taxes are out of sight, out of mind for too many people. Let people keep the money they make, then tell them what they owe every year. Millions of people would be shocked and hundreds of thousands would not be able to pay their bill because nobody knows how to save these days. All that extra money would be spent. The bottom line is that people would finally understand how much money they are being charged. Lots of people would then question what the hell their taxes are going towards.

The fulcrum point in history was Roe v. Wade, this is the litmus test for Democrats. Is there a single pro-life Democrat left in their party? I don't think so. When we allowed for abortion on demand, we gave Man the moral authority to murder unborn children. Once you can justify doing that, you can justify doing just about anything.
Joe Manchin may be the last Blue Dog Democrat left in the Senate. He will always vote D when it counts but he will also need to sound like a conservative when he talks or the good people of WV will show him the door.
My point exactly, people need to learn how to defend against it. I wanted to see reactions so I played DA.
Laughable "Issa turned it into a partisan witchhunt", when it was the IRS who was abusing their power to impede private organizations in their missions because of their perceived political preferences.
