Gordon writes, The Feds have released libertarian Anthony Hargis -- who operated a free banking system based on gold, which did not report to the government -- after 6 mos in jail, but only because they could not find anything they could hold him for, and because they have already seized every asset that he owned, and all of the funds his clients had invested with him. Furthermore, the IRS has seized his offices, email, and snail-mail addresses, and are using them in a "sting operation" to try and ensnare Hargis' clients, whom they are assuming guilty of tax-evasion unless they can prove themselves innocent.
