For some reason, Members of Congress, President Biden, and the IRS are increasingly concerned that you're committing tax fraud – so they want your banks to throw you against the wall.

I don’t want anyone telling me how to live my life. So honestly, if the country split up I wouldn’t miss anything that "The Left" brings to the table.
