This weekend I met a gentleman running for McCain’s Senate seat who set me straight. He knows more than I about the ratification of the income tax and reported to me that a certain few states initially ratified it but that number of states ratifying the 16th Amendment has increased to 38. Senate candidate Jim Deakin corrected me during our conversation this weekend.
“Irregardless” of the vote, I hold that the taxing of income by the Federal Government is unconstitutional! And, what’s more, immoral. Now, the states may tax income but the Federal Government? NEVER! Our US Constitution limits the Federal Government to collecting duties & tariffs. Yet, The New World Order has created the god of “free trade” for us to worship.
It is refreshing to meet someone like Jim Deakin www.jimdeakin.com running for high office who knows his stuff and supports a return to both a Constitutional Congress (Wherein we don’t pay Congressmen!) and a Constitutional Senate (to which we the people don’t directly elect our Senators but our elected state legislators elect Senators from amoung themselves–subject to instant recall at any time!)
I admit I was wrong in my last post entitled “You Stupid People!” My apologies. Mea cupla.
