This old video I just uncovered is really incredible!
First, let me set the stage.
This is an old video which didn’t have a date on it when I found it but it looks like it has to be at least 20-30 years old.
It features a journalist interviewing Harry Reid about taxes and on so many different levels this is pretty incredible.
First, I can’t ever cover Harry Reid without resetting one of my favorite jokes from Dennis Miller: “Harry Reid? That’s not a name, that’s a medical condition!”
Hilarious! And so true.
The other thing that jumped out at me immediately is just how different the media looks back then.
You may not even recognize this because it’s been so long since you’ve seen it, but this is a real journalist actually asking real questions and challenging him on what he is saying!
Can you imagine seeing an interview like this today?
Oh sure, you’ll see Donald Trump get grilled, but that’s about it.
For everyone else it’s softball after softball.
No real journalism.
No hard-hitting questions.
But 20-30 years ago?
You got some great interviews!
And the last thing that jumped out, of course, was the topic covered in the interview.
Yes folks, here is a Senator claiming that “taxation is voluntary”.
Watch for yourself, he says it verbatim — watch here on Rumble:
Is Harry Reid saying you can stop paying taxes?
No, of course not.
This is a classic example of Double-Speak.
He says one thing and then says the exact opposite in the same breath.
Lying, corrupt politicians.
This interviewer was not going to let him get away with it, but he essentially did.
I love how he even gives a confused face at one point as if to say “what part of this are you not getting?”
Gee Harry, I don’t know…how about the part where you are flat out lying and saying two different, completely contradictory things in this one interview?
Maybe that’s the part we don’t get?
Maybe we’re tired of being lied to, literally right to our faces?
Taxation is voluntary.
Oh, and speaking of Harry Reid, never forget he’s in the Black Eye Club:
Oh and in case that video above gets taken down, here are some backups.
From all the way back to 2009:

Wow. Same Harry Reid who said taxation is voluntary. It's a travesty people like him have power over our money.
