(NaturalNews) If you are one of the millions of Americans who does not want to be forced into purchasing "affordable" health care under Obama starting in 2014, you have the option to decline. As we reported previously, the Internal Revenue Service
(IRS) does not actually have the power or authority to collect so-called "taxes" for non-compliance with Obamacare's individual mandate, which means refusing to purchase it is a no-brainer.
As it turns out, provisions in the Affordable Care Act
(ACA) bar the IRS from enforcing penalties against taxpayers who refuse to either purchase insurance or pay the uninsured "tax." Not only can the IRS not
bring criminal enforcement cases against taxpayers who refuse to pay the non-insurance penalty, according to Forbes.com
, but the agency also cannot force a tax lien, which means the only way the IRS can collect the "tax" is to deduct it from taxpayers' refunds.
But many taxpayers do not receive tax refunds, which means they have the freedom to avoid paying the tax without penalty. And if millions of taxpayers choose to go this route, the entire sick care scheme will literally come apart at the seems, as insurance rates for everyone else will increase dramatically and eventually collapse the system. This, of course, will deter Obamacare from ever actually coming into full effect, at least not without major public uproar.
"The restrictions placed on the IRS's ability to collect the tax penalty make it unlikely the IRS
can effectively enforce the individual mandate," write tax experts Jordan M. Barry and Bryan T. Camp in their thorough analysis, Is the Individual Mandate Really Mandatory?
. "Thus, many taxpayers who neglect or refuse to pay the tax penalty could structure their affairs in such a way as to avoid being subject to legal consequences or any sort for years to come, if ever."

Why refusing Obamacare is a patriotic duty
What this all means is that savvy taxpayers who do not want to shell out their hard-earned cash to support the interests of the health insurance and pharmaceutical industry cabal have somewhat of a legal remedy at their disposal to protest it. Obamacare
already appears to be collapsing before it even has the chance to come into full effect, and pledging not to purchase it or pay a penalty could be the final nail in the coffin for this fascist sick care dictate.
"Congress purposely limited the enforcement powers of the IRS to avoid the public outcry that a strong mandate to buy government-approved insurance would evoke," write Joseph Antos and Michael R. Strain for The American Magazine
. "Under Obamacare, the IRS cannot seize any of your property to enforce the mandate penalty. The IRS cannot go after the money in your bank accounts, and it can't sell your car
. It can't send you to jail, and it can't touch your stuff."
But even if it did, some might say that patriotic Americans who value true health freedom still have a duty to protect Obamacare. Yes, the existing health care system in America is flawed. But Obamacare is yet another step in the wrong direction, as it not only gives the federal government the power to force
you into the system, but it will also require you to submit to treatments and procedures that are approved by the medical system, which we all know favors drugs and surgery rather than nutrition and prevention.Sources for this article include:http://www.inquisitr.comhttp://taxprof.typepad.comhttp://www.american.com
