The Arizona State University Students For Liberty have taken an interesting twist on a tax-day protest: acting like dorky IRS agents and sexy cops to collect “mandatory donations” from unsuspecting passersby.
Thanks to the help of a Student Protest Grant from SFL/Bureaucrash, the group first visited a block party in downtown Phoenix, where reactions were mixed. Some people believed the students actually were IRS agents, others begged to be arrested by the female officers, but most importantly some people’s eyes were opened.
Firemen and police officers agreed they would like their job more if it was run privately. People agreed a $9.3 million project creating RoboBees is not where they want their hard-earned dollars spent.
Ross Kenyon, a leader of the ASU Students For Liberty had an enlightening conversation with a student on the ASU campus about being forced to pay for things we do not agree with. Check out this first video released by the group.
Keep an eye out for more videos coming up! The group plans to hit the pavement hard on April 14th and 15th on the ASU campus, as well as storm a Tea Party on Tax Day to strike up what will surely be interesting conversation.
