Everyone should understand that the power to tax is the power to destroy and there is a constant debate whether taxes should be limited to fund
government or taxes should be used as a form of social control. IMO its the former.
Another thing people need to understand is that the federal government has no inherent or expressed power under the constitution to legislate federal
criminal law. Federal criminal law came into being through the enforcement of taxation, like the enforcement the marijuana tax stamp laws. You see,
before marijuana was taxed into illegality by the federal government. To this day the federal government clings to the fact that you need to have
federal tax stamp to possess marijuana and of course the federal government does not permit you to purchase a tax stamp for marijuana. The result is
that the power of the federal government to tax and regulate has been twisted into the power to prohibit and criminalize. IMO its unconstitutional.
The federal government has the powers granted to it under the constitution and that's it, no more, no less.
Anyway, this tax on video games is the regurgitation of the same old tired ideas that do nothing but permit the politicians to stand up for their
photo ops and declare that they solved the problem. Next they will be playing albums backwards looking for satanic messages. /sarcasm
At a time when we need bright people in congress to deal with these issues, that is when you really realize that we have a bunch of corrupt imbeciles
who at every turn take the opportunity to cut into the bill of rights. Neither party promotes the bill of rights, instead each party takes turns
attacking the portion of the bill of rights that the other party supports. What that means is that the constitution is under constant attack by our
politicians. The sooner that people realize the game that is being played, the sooner we can demand that they stop.
Attacking liberty is never the solution.
