You seriously think that by allowing states the right to make their own laws that they would create slaverly???
I mean seriously.
The Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution officially outlaws slavery and involuntary servitude, except as punishment for a crime.
It was passed by the Senate on April 8, 1864, by the House on January 31, 1865, and adopted on December 6, 1865. On December 18, Secretary of State
William H. Seward proclaimed it to have been adopted. It was the first of the three Reconstruction Amendments adopted after the American Civil
As you can see if a state were to pass a slave law it would be unconstitutional and the Federal Government would have a job to do. So it would never
happen... plus people have evolved further than that.
First by having citizens pay taxes to the state only and then the state paying taxes to the fed gov. State would want to maximize on how many
citizens they have because the more people the more money. Second we are americans and have the right to move any where in the U.S. and this foremost
would dictate what laws states would pass... we as people would have the power to create change.
On February 3rd, 1913, the states ratified the 16th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. It reads:
"The congress shall have the power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States,
and without regard to any census or enumeration."
This amendment gives the federal government the power to tax a person's income. These income taxes can be used to pay for the government's new
programs. Taxes are not based on a flat rate but can change according to the amount of income earned. The richer you are, the more taxes you pay. If
you're poor, you get a break.
If you examine the bill closer you will find that the amount of states needed to ratify this amendment was never met, and adding to that, this
bill is completely unconstitutional as it is a direct unpartitioned tax

Unfortunately the 16th admendment has been contested and I do disagree with this one because of the facts. I do believe the federal government should
receive tax money.. I just feel it should go to the states then the states pay washington. Then the more Profitable the State the more the Federal
Government recieves. Which in turns makes the Fed Gov. wanna help make each state as PRODUCTIVE as possible.
Actually keeping it simple with most things works well.
And no we don't have the most money our money is almost worthless and we are on the edge of fiscal collapse.
Oh but we can just keep printing money from nothing right???
