If the IRS is one thing it is fair.
The IRS would have attacked liberals as well as conservatives if they both had threatened the existence of the IRS. But that isn't the case. Only "Tea Parties" and "Patriots" threatened to eliminate the IRS or seriously reduce its role through a flat tax. Liberals didn't attack the IRS. So, the IRS didn't attack them. Seems fair to us.
In the words of George Bernard Shaw, "A government that robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the support of Paul."
