American’s Found Guilty: The Sixteenth Amendment

Aug 23, 2012 by

In 1913 every American was tried, found guilty and sentenced for their exercise of freedom and participation in Capitalism. With the ratification of the Sixteenth Amendment to the Constitution we were handed a death sentence. The Sixteenth Amendment states “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”. We all know it as individual income tax. In our unmolested Constitution, the founders, guided by what is just, apportioned “direct taxes … among the several states which may be included within this Union, according to their respective numbers” (Art.1 Sec. 2) determined every 10 years by the census. The Founders further stated in Article 1 Section 9 that “No capitation (numbering heads or individuals) or other direct tax shall be laid, unless in proportion to the census or enumeration herein before directed to be taken.” Taxation is an equal duty and financial responsibility according to the Founders in which each state in fraternity with the others provides for the execution of the National Government’s responsibility to protect the individual’s rights.

When the National Government takes an individual’s personal income it penalizes the person for exercising individual freedom. The very act of personal income tax limits a person’s ability to purchase food, shelter, clothing, goods, travel, and leisure time activities. The more the government takes the less freedom you can exercise.

The way personal income tax is applied is unjust. The more you make the more they take. It becomes a penalty the very moment that taxation is applied to the person unequally. The very act of penalizing some, and giving others less responsibility or a pass, is unjust. Do individuals who make more income pay a greater tax to purchase goods (sales tax), mail a letter (stamp tax), or enjoy a State or National Park (user fees)? Justice is blind because it is without bias, therefore applying the law equally. We do not adjust the penalty for a crime based on the individual, but on the nature and severity of the crime. That is not the case with the income tax penalty. It is based on the individual’s personal income, as if making money is a crime, and the more you make the greater the penalty.

There is a crime being committed. The crime being committed is in the methodical destruction of the reasoned principles contained in the Declaration of Independence and protected in the Constitution. Find the right perpetrators of this crime, exact justice, and Self-Government will be restored rightfully to the People.
