DickSimkanin.com | Simkanin stood up for America, for all American workers and for all American Business owners when he decided in 2000 that his company was no longer going to participate in the withholding racquet alledged forced and demanded by law from Congress. Dick had spent 6 years researching American history and foundational principles. Ultimately he was spiritually convicted that he had no business being an unpaid bookkeeper for the Federal government, therefore, he had to give his workers 100% of their pay. How American of him! Thank God for Dicks’ courage as it has cost him everything.

Ultimately, Dick was indicted after the government tried three times to no avail. A Grand Jury indicted him in June 2003, he was arrested and the criminal legal battle was on!

So what can we learn from Dick’s tragedy? Here are some suggestions:
