Beverly Lee # 75-07136
2601 Meacham Blvd. Ste.# 550
Ft. Worth, Texas 76137

Dear Beverly Lee:

I understand your letter; however, I have a few problems with it.

First, I have made extraordinary attempts over these past 4 years to get an answer to my now famous question: "Where is my tax liability in the law?" I have done death fasting at the IRS Regional Center in Austin and seen sad faces on Treasury Agents report that they could find no tax liability for me in the law. I walked from there to the Federal Building in Atlanta, Georgia. They said the same.

Second, I see in I Corinthians 7:23 that I have a mandate as follows: "You are bought with a price, [free Christians] be categorically not the literal, figurative, voluntary or involuntary slaves of men." My choices in light of my being a "free Christian" are quite limited, as you attempt to gain from my labor -- (slavery). I am fully prepared to meet the Biblical mandate by cutting my throat, slitting my wrists, burning myself with gasoline or fasting to death, should you seek further to enslave me with IRS action, in accordance with the Word of God.

Third, I read where U.S. vs. Lee, related by Justice Burger said, "Religion can be accommodated [in tax related matters]." I obviously seek some alternative to slavery so that I might live out my natural life on earth, but I am also prepared and willing to die.

Thank you for your kind attention to this matter. However, please note that your move to touch a dime of my meager assets or paycheck translates into an immediate death sentence upon me, a "free Christian."

I see no reason for a meeting unless you have an alternative tax system to slavery in mind.

Most respectfully,

Gene K. Chapman

I've mailed a letter to Beverly Lee. It basically shares my view of 'leave my money alone and I live; take it and I die.' Gene.

Hi Robert,

As I told you on the phone just now, I'm wanting to file a case against the IRS for violating my religious mandate: "You [free Christians] be categorically not the literal, figurative, voluntary or involuntray slaves of men" (I Corinthians 7:23).

I am looking for accomodation in taxation for my religion: Justice Burger -- "Religious beliefs can be accommodated...." United States v. Lee 455 U.S. 252 (1982).

I also want to bring out that I have asked (perhaps the most famous person in the movement for having asked the question): " Where is my tax liability in the law?" Becraft has already won on this.

I do not find on your site the blank court cases you told me to see. Can you put together something that I can file in Texas?

Gene Chapman

Dr. Clarkson says he will help me put together a court case that the IRS is violating my religious right to practice my religious views: "You [free Christians] be categorically not the literal, figurative, voluntary or involuntary slaves of men" (I Corinthians 7:23).

Well, I'll be down to about $1,800 in personal debt in a couple of weeks, by my math. I don't like bills. I must get debt free to fight the IRS freely.

Fred and I have been talking about getting a lawyer to take my religious issue to court before I have to slit my wrists over the slavery issue. Gene.

After all: Justice Burger -- "Religious beliefs can be accommodated...." United States v. Lee 455 U.S. 252 (1982).

My dear mother and I went to the lake to sit and talk and watch the birds out in the water on an island. We had breakfast and spoke of my death some. She is not real happy about my situation but understands my fight to stop slavery is of merit. She and I are both Christians, so we appreciate dying for your faith is an essential part of Christianity.


You may wish to call Beverly at 817-759-2900 ex. 6194 or fax her at 817-759-2923. Our meeting is scheduled for 1 pm. We'll see what I am to do. I know that I cannot assist them in enslaving me in any way to stay true to Gandhian ideas of freedom. Maybe God will let me die soon. I pray it is so. Gene.

Finally, after about 9 months, I guess, I have a letter from the IRS requesting a meeting to discuss all my tax matters in Ft. Worth, Texas, on July 28, 2004. It is from Beverly Lee, 2601 Meacham Blvd., Suite 550, Ft. Worth, Texas 76137.

It is fitting that I got my copy of The Essential Gandhi today, as well. The first thing I opened to in the book is the chapter entitled, How to Enjoy Jail. How I muse over my own death and how easy it would be to be a martyr to this just cause to stop tax slavery. I just want to do it when the time and reasons are right and most fruitful for the cause. Gene.

Pictures From The Road

Picture of truck window that was hit by a big rock on the highway.

I must be doing something right.  I've got a small army of propagandists showing parts of my accedemic records on the internet and then asserting that I'm a "liar" at every turn, based on their inablility to offer a complete picture.  I'm flattered that the petition has such a reach that it already has hardened enemies.  We may need to have a lawyer or the FBI find out where these people are located, as they do seem to gain interesting access to private data.  I'm not afraid of anything they could share, but it just is not right that strangers could know so much about private matters.

Well, I'm back in Dallas for the weekend.  We have 28 confirmed sigantures on the Slave Freedom Amenement Petition in hand, as of day 19 (today) of them being passed out.  I had 5 signatures in 40 minutes at a truck stop where I put out a petition and walked off to shower and eat. 
We are on the right track!!
Merry Belle in Georgia reported she has 20 signatures on her petition last weekend. 
I need help getting the petition online, so we can start running tv and radio ads to direct people to it.

I am in a truck stop tonight online. I am testing this system.

Sunday, July 11, 2004

I've been fighting off programs that keep installing on my computer and kicking me off line for the past couple of weeks. I'm thinking I've deleted the right stuff this time.

The Slave Freedom Amendment Petition was signed once again tonight at the motel I checked into. If we get them mailed in, the tax issue will be resolved quickly, in my view, as multitudes are signing it. I'll give it a couple of months and see what comes in before I think of a change in tactics.

I'll be thinking about state petitions on slave freedom this week.

A company advertises a $995 intense 5 day program to gain level 1 NDT Inspector status. That would get me off the road and into a good paying job.

I had a conversation with several Amish people in Ohio. They will be waiting to hear from their elder on the moral side of the arguments I make against the IRS. Amish people are IRS fighters from a long time back, and they do win at times. U.S. vs. Lee is an IRS/ Amish case, as you see on the left side of my blog.

Well, I'm off to drive 450 miles today. Gene.
