The de facto US Constitution is "Anything Goes... That We Can Get Away With."

The body of statutes and case law on taxation is somewhat like the so-called "bible" -- you can find a citation to "prove" almost anything.

The person seeking fiscal freedom is somewhat like a fish among many in an ocean with a few sharks. A small percentage of fish get eaten by sharks. Some fish are very good at eluding sharks. In general, sharks go after the "sitting fish."
