On behalf of JC and Shadow Raider, I post the following:
Though a link to this is on the recent House Ways & Means feature, it is at the bottom of that post with a single line reference.
It is unrelated and deserving of its own post. I have provided some text below that may be included.
I have communicated with Shadow Raider via Facebook. He says it is o.k. to ask for his recent paper to be a feature on The Isaac Brock Society.
This is an important paper outlining how citizenship-based taxation is unconstitutional, especially in the case of U.S. Persons resident outside the U.S. The paper appears well researched and presented. However, the paper may be strengthened if it were subject to “peer review” with some probing of potential weaknesses and restatement (in different words) of some key points and strengths to assist others understand the concepts.
This was posted on Facebook, yet that posting only received “likes” and not comments. That leaves The Isaac Brock Society for review.
Shadow Raider reports:
I’ve also been sending my paper to many law professors. A few responded with an opinion, some positive and some negative, but always inconclusive and claiming that they were not experts on the subject. Those focused on taxation referred me to those focused n constitutional law, and vice versa. I’m starting to think that an “expert” on this subject simply doesn’t exist. I’m taking this inconclusive result as an indication that my argument is indeed a valid question for the courts.
Also, please include in comments ideas of how to get authoritative attention to this paper, and or authoritative affirmation/endorsement of the key points.
The paper has been cleverly linked from Google Docs as a “living document” allowing editing and revision by the author, accessible from the same link.
The paper has been “significantly updated” since it first appeared a few weeks ago.
