I agree with you that the IRS uses extreme coercion (and with your comparison to a mugging).

But sometimes you have to stand up for what you believe in (you may only lose your house, but a million guys in Iraq lost their lives).

At least if you disagree with the policies of war in Iraq, you have to agree that taxation is morally reprehensible (at least during the Bush term).
