he modern IRS and it's complex taxes were also implemented by Wilson and the democrats. So some of the taxes we do have are socialistic because they are "progressive."

Where is sit stated that nothingness created something out of nothing?
As far as I'm aware no scientist has ever stated for fact what created the universe or how it came to be, only theorised it.
Creationists claim to know how everything came to be with no scientific basis.

Jesus was a radical. He told people to give to Caesar what is Caesar's when asked about paying taxes because Caesar's face, was on the coin, he healed the sick and didn't charge them a dime, and he told us to love our neighbour as much as we love ourselves. Decide if this is socialist.

The 16th Amendment was the genesis for the modern IRS, this Amendment was favored by both parties. Get your facts straight.
For several years after Pollock, Congress did not attempt to implement another income tax, largely due to concerns that the Supreme Court would strike down any attempt to levy an income tax. In 1909, during the debate over the Payne–Aldrich Tariff Act, Congress proposed the Sixteenth Amendment to the states. Though conservative Republican leaders had initially expected that the amendment would not be ratified, a coalition of Democrats, progressive Republicans, and other groups ensured that the necessary number of states ratified the amendment. Shortly after the amendment was ratified, Congress imposed a federal income tax with the Revenue Act of 1913. The Supreme Court upheld that income tax in the 1916 case of Brushaber v. Union Pacific Railroad Co., and the federal government has continued to levy an income tax since 1913.
