If you want to see the future of America, or at least the future the Obama/Pelosi/Reid axis of fiscal evil has in mind, look no further than what used to be the great nation of England
England has died under socialism and political correctness, but this plan may be too extreme, even for the cowed people of England.
The British tax agency has now proposed that all employers send paychecks to the government first. The government will then decide how much should be taken out in taxes, and if they don’t screw it up, send the remaining balance to the worker.
What could go wrong?
The government is like a drug addict. Their drug is our money. Our money that they want to spend in the most wasteful of ways. They will do anything to get that money.
Do you remember earlier this year, California, which forces artificially high withholding rates for the State income tax announced there would be no tax refunds this year. They have turned what was an interest free loan to the state into an effective higher tax rate, without a vote. This, simply because they spend money at an insane rate.
This lunatic idea shows the ultimate evil of the income tax. To quote a former Tennessee governor, the income tax exists only to “fuel the endless, easy expansion of government spending.” There is no level of taxation that will satisfy the government. The more they take, the more they want.
There is an ultimate solution. We must repeal the 16th Amendment. End of discussion. The purpose of taxes is to fund government, not to achieve social goals. The purpose of taxes is to fund the government, not to bankrupt citizens. The only way to stop this insanity is to find a tax system that is not based on socialism.
We need to find a leader who has the courage to step up against the left and insist the income tax system be dismantled and forever repealed. Right now, none of the major candidates have this kind of courage
The sixteenth wasn't added until 1909. Ratified in 1913 during the progressive era.
The constitution was formed because the articles of confederation were to weak is true.
That was for the original constitution. The 16th was a usurpation the progressives allowed themselves.
Kind of like health care. Couldn't do a thing about no matter how you counted the votes.
The 17th is also a usurpation. This was usurped into the constitution so they could centralize the central government into the control freaks they have begun. Not taking into account the 10th amendment which was added in 1787.
Adoption of the Constitution of 1787 was opposed by a number of well-known patriots including Patrick Henry, Samuel Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and others. They passionately argued that the Constitution would eventually lead to a strong, centralized state power which would destroy the individual liberty of the People. Many in this movement were given the poorly-named tag “Anti-Federalists.”
The Tenth Amendment was added to the Constitution of 1787 largely because of the intellectual influence and personal persistence of the Anti-Federalists and their allies.
It’s quite clear that the Tenth Amendment was written to emphasize the limited nature of the powers delegated to the federal government. In delegating just specific powers to the federal government, the states and the people, with some small exceptions, were free to continue exercising their sovereign powers.
OVER TAXATION IS THE RUINATION OF AN ECONOMY, we need to rid ourselves of the IRS. 100% TAXATION IS IT'S GOAL. WE PAY TOO MANY TAXES AS IT IS NOW. REPEAL THE 16TH AMENDMENT NOW and find a TAX FRIENDLY SOLUTION. A NATION WITH A GREAT ECONOMY HAS VERY LITTLE DIRECT TAXES ON IT'S PEOPLE. we are headed in the WRONG DIRECTION TAX WISE. NOBODY SHOULD MESS WITH UR PAYCHECK PERIOD!!!.
