The comments section of this Union Leader article on the Brown's are filled with negative invective spun against the Browns such as the following:
"Those people in the Brown's "camp" are delusional idiots. When they are ignored by Police and the public they whine and cry about being attacked and do their best to create some dramatic lunacy about being "picked on". I wish they'd be attacked by common sense but that's a waste of a wish. That's somethin neither the Brown's nor their "supporters" have. It would be nice if the outsiders who pander to the Brown's need to appear as victims would go back where they came from. New Hampshire does NOT need them."

We posted one response/comment which has yet to appear in the comments section of this article as follows:
The Browns have offered to pay all their "taxes", but the Federal government refuses to show them the law that requires them to file and pay....
First....."At the heart of Brown's protest is the Court�s failure, in denying Brown�s substantive and dispositive pre-trial motions, to properly respond to the questions and issues that were presented to the Court in the motions � that is, the Court's failure to state the facts and the questions being presented by Brown, the law and how the Court was applying the law to answer the questions."
Second....Tom Cryer, an attorney from Louisiana, recently won a case against the IRS which your publication has yet to report on. See...
Third....Tom Cryer and Ed and Elaine Brown are among millions of Americans who have asked the question "Show Me The Law" and to date the government has responded with stone/cold silence. 2000+ individuals filed a lawsuit against the US Goverment on July 19, 2004 in an effort to compel the government to admit that We The People are the Masters over our servant government - and this is expressed in the limitation imposed by the last 10 words in the 1st amendment to our Constitution:
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
"....AND TO PETITION THE GOVERNMENT FOR A REDRESS OF GRIEVANCES." One could argue that these are 10 of the most powerful words in the bill of rights.
Tom Cryer, Ed and Elaine Brown and millions of Americans have repeatedly "petitioned the government for a redress of grievances" regarding questions about the taxing powers of Congress related to the administration of the Federal income tax.
The government remains silent on this issue. It has taken the position that it does not have to answer questions from We The People concerning Constitutional torts. During the first 60-70 years of our country's history governments at all levels treated petitions from individuals - across all range of issues - with respect by answering each and every one.
Here's a write up on the formal record of the petitioning process over this and other issues involving Constitutional torts conducted by We The People Foundation/Congress since 1999:
