If the amendment was ratified, there would have to be a paper trail... documents proving this.
Where are they? Post 'em.
Not he said she said stuff either... I want names, numbers, dates, scans.
A number of researchers have attempted to do this, and found nothing but empty files and dead ends. We just have to take the government's word for
it that this amendment is ratified.
But how about the supreme court's decision stating that "The 16th amendment granted congress no new powers of taxation"? What does this mean? It
meant that by the legal wording of the constitution and the amendment, it changed nothing. Only in the minds of the ignorant public does it look like
we can be taxed on our "income".
What people don't know is that "income" in legal terms does not mean "wages earned in exchange for labor". It means strictly "profit on
Your "income" is not income in terms of the law. It is an exchange, not a profit. Constitutionally, government cannot tax individuals on their
exchanges. If so, then when I give you an apple for your orange, an IRS agent should show up and take part of each.
Taxing your labor is simply creating a percentage of slavery. If you are taxed 0%, you are free. If you are taxed 100% you are a total slave. Right
now we are taxed about 35%. TAXED ON AN EXCHANGE.
If your wife cooks you a dinner, and you give her the food to cook, do you owe the government part of that food you exchanged with her? And does she
owe the government part of the labor she put into cooking it?
If it sounds absurd to tax simple household exchanges like this, then how much more sense does it make to tax the exchange of your time, effort, and
talent for compensation in terms of pay? It might only make sense to most people because money is involved.
But isn't money really just an exchange? Think about it.
It's all a big scam to confiscate the wealth and labor of the people. Theft and slavery, but under a different name.
This scam is as old as time. People in power using their power to enforce greater subjugation of the people.
Did you know that our country survived for 137 years without an income tax? If the income tax is so necessary, then how did we get by so long without
Here's something a lot of people don't know about taxes.
- Your income tax dollars buy you nothing. They pay for no government services. What they pay for is the interest on a debt to the privately-owned
"Federal" "Reserve" bank, which creates money out of thin air, loans it to our government, and charges interest on it. The Grace Commission
Report which President Ronald Reagan had set up in the early 80's reported this very fact.
- All the services the public expects from government are paid for by legal taxes (income tax being ILLEGAL). Roads are paid for by gas and tire
taxes. Schools by property tax. Federal Government by corporate tax.
- The income tax and the Federal Reserve were created the same year. Not a coincidence.
- The people that created this legislation were not government employees, or bureaucrats... but rather very wealthy bankers. Hmmm.... you don't
think they would have written it to work for themselves and not the people, do you?
