And neither would repeal of the 16th prevent that.

Did the Federal government have the right to tax incomes before the 16th Amendment was ratified?
If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.

You're plan replaces the IRS with the BATFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ,


Yours can easily grow back into something much worse than we have now.


K-Street has nothing to do with income.  K-Street's sole focus is on spending and regulation.  That won't change.


Receiving gifts and inheriting estates is not income.  If you are talking about social security taxes, those should be eliminated along with the program.

You are wrong on all counts but definitely entitled to your opinions.

 I'm done for today.  Have a great rest of your weekend.

Yes! And they did so. As did the Confederacy.

Even more reason for a Constitutional Amendment.
