Dear Democracy Now! Visitor: We are an independent, ad-free daily news program that serves millions of viewers and listeners each month. Our show is special because we make it our priority to go where the silence is. We put a spotlight on corporate and government abuses of power and lift up the stories of ordinary people working to make change in extraordinary times. We do all of this with just a fraction of the budget and staff of a commercial news show. We do it without ads, corporate sponsorship or government funding. How is this possible? Only with your support. If everyone who visited our website in the next week donated just $15, we would cover all of our operating costs for the year. We can't do it without you. Please donate today. It takes just a couple of minutes to do your part to make sure Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else.

Today is Tax Day. But not for a group conscientious objectors. Hundreds of people nationwide refuse to pay Federal income tax in protest at military spending.

Guest:

  • Randy Kehler, a war tax resistor since the Vietnam War, during which he was jailed for draft resistance for 22 months. He was also in jail for some three months in 1992 for refusing to pay some Federal income tax.
  • Wally and Juanita Nelson, long-time war tax resistors. He was a conscientious objector in World War II and went to prison. He stopped paying Federal income tax in 1948.
