UNBELIEVABLY scary TV ad from Pennsylvania Department of Revenue

"We know who you are." That's the message from the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue in this spot - paid for with the tax dollars of Pennsylvania citizens - that obviously has but one purpose: to SCARE us.

Who exactly is "we" here? And who is "you" intended to represent?

Has our government really become so divorced from the people it's supposed to be comprised of and represent, that it has now resorted to active measures of intimidation?

Here. See for yourself...

This is not freedom, people. This is blatant tyranny. This is everything that the Founders and too many others since their time have fought against and far more than that. And if I were a resident of Pennsylvania, I would be mad as #&@$ at the state government there for this. It indicates way too much else gone screwy, not just in Pennsylvania but across this country.

As V said in V for Vendetta: "People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people."

Thanks to "lowbridge" for passing this along.

Very creepy. Very wrong. And very un-American.

I am a resident of Pennsylvania and this ad does make me mad as hell. PA is the Land of Taxes. You would not believe how many different taxes we pay here, it's disgusting.
