: : I need some imput on the following situation. I tried to register to vote yesterday at the county clerk's office. Now before everyone jumps all over me I was aware of the potential implications in signing of Adhesion Contracts, however we have a big election coming up with the chance of electing a constitutionally oriented sherrif and changing a corrupt departing.
: Anyhow, as I attempted to register I was told I had to answer 4 questions verbally. The 2nd question said that if I register to vote in the Stat of Colorado I also agree to register my vehicles, get a drivers license and the last point pay income taxes! ! ! ! I took issue with the county clerk on that last point in taxes. I asked what does income tax have to do with voting? She said " it was one of the requirements for proving I was a "resident"
: Can anyone tell me if there is a way to vote without perjuring myself. And how can they prevent me from voting on the basis of income tax.
You may wish to discuss this with those more
aware of the nuances of the law, as I've still got
a lot to learn, but (hypothetically) just for a
chance to turn the tables on 'them' consider this:
When they ask you to swear you will pay your
income taxes, reply that you will pay all taxes for
which the law makes you liable. That's what the
Paperwork Reduction Act Notice on the 1040
form requires, and as most who visit here
regularly know, the law doesn't make you liable
for federal income taxes (you'll have to check for
state income taxes). If you don't pay them,
you're not violating your oath. (You may want to
record your statement on tape or video for proof
of what you actually swore to and have a
witness along to support your claims, just in
Again, that's not legal advice. What you do or
don't do with it is your responsibility. Tread
