A separate account has been opened for Project TOTO. All donations will be protected. We have retained the services of a bonded accounting firm, experienced in large account management. Two signatures are required on each check -- the President of the Accounting firm and either the Chairman or the Treasurer of We The People Foundation for Constitutional Education, Inc. No salaries, overhead or G&A expenses will be paid out of the fund.

Project TOTO
Nationwide Plan To Expose and End the Illegal Operations
of the Income Tax System

The goal is to educate scores of millions of citizens (along with accountants, tax attorneys, legislators, judges, IRS employees, and prospective jurors) about the true nature of the income tax laws, to expose operations of the IRS that are unauthorized by law, and to put an end to their illegal collection of taxes from people who do not owe them -- the vast majority of US citizens. 

If the government has legitimate answers to the questions raised by the legal research that has been done, we hope this kind of public informational campaign will force those answers to the surface.

We have started to see some results from previous direct, large-scale, public educational efforts. We The People Foundation for Constitutional Education ran full-page ad messages about the income tax in the Washington Times last June and in USA Today on July 7th.  These ads were a big factor in prompting the New York Times to assign its senior tax reporter, David Cay Johnston, to research and write an investigative report. His article appeared on the front page of the November 19th national edition (see We The People comments), and was followed by an editorial on Tuesday, November 21, 2000. Both pieces focused on the increasing number of employers who have stopped all tax withholding from their employees.   The IRS failed to rebut the legal claims of the employers. Although the articles were heavily biased, it shows that the subject is gaining national attention.   Another example: a producer for CBS' 60 Minutes II has now contacted Joe Banister for a piece that will air in April, which will presumably focus on Mr. Banister's decision to resign from his position as a Special Agent in the Criminal Investigation Division of the IRS, because he could no longer enforce the Internal Revenue Code as if payment were compulsory.   This was after completing a two year private research project in which he concluded that payment of the tax was voluntary.  Another example: a producer for John Stossel and ABC's 20/20 has requested a copy of the tapes of the four symposiums and conferences the We The People Foundation for Constitutional Education has sponsored at the National Press Club on the subject of the fraud and illegal operations of the income tax system.

As the story of the tragic events of a taxpayer's life unfolded in Massachusetts recently, we are reminded once again of the trail of carnage and human tragedy left by our income tax system and the government that refuses to address the legal grievances of the Freedom movement. Even if Mr. McDermott was liable for the income tax (which is not the case for most U.S. citizens), the law prohibits the IRS and employers from doing what they were about to do to Mr. McDermott -- garnish his wages without a court order.

We believe that the tide has finally turned and NOW is the time to publish and broadcast the collective detailed, statutory and regulatory arguments of the Tax movement -- to put these facts before the American public to reach a critical mass of people demanding an end to these unconstitutional and illegal (corrupt) acts.  We believe public exposure is the worst enemy of governmental wrongdoing.

This is our project. Everyone is invited to participate, contribute and join with others to manifest a moment in history rivaling the legacy of our Forefathers.  Just as those Founding Fathers pledged their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor to the cause of liberty, we will be asking each of you to consider a similar pledge. Each of you who participates has access to either intellectual property, a network of citizens and/or access to financial resources.

The primary project strategy is to widely disseminate our message for FREE.

We believe that by standing together and sharing the collective burden of this calling, we can more rapidly and effectively accomplish together what none of us has achieved alone thus far. We intend to ignite a public discussion the likes of which our Nation has not seen for 225 years.
