Since income taxes were begun “to help the poor,” income tax has done more to create the poor than any other legislation. Isn’t it in the least way immoral that you have to pay taxes to the same government that has to provide you with entitlements because you are poor? So, you give the government $1000, which is more than you can afford. The government gives you back $300 so you can eat. What happens to the other $700? Does it go to other poor people?

Now the 16th Amendment had to be ratified by the American people. How in the world did the framers of this misbegotten gargantua convince the American people to do this to themselves?
Easy. They lied to us.
They told us “income” meant one thing when they convinced us to vote for it, then they…
