Hello Craig – Please look this over about the CST. This is the only way to get the Federal Government under control. If you are inclined to do so call me. My phone number is at the end. Thanks. Cy.
The CONSTITUTONAL SUPPORT TAX (the CST)
A States-based system to pay for Federal
expenditures that ends the Federal Government’s
power to tax and borrow money
The States of the USA, and the People, have granted the U.S. Federal Government, through Congress, the power to tax, borrow and
create money. (Article I, Section 8, Paragraphs 1, 2, and 5 of the U.S. Constitution plus the 16th Amendment. The "Big Four.") The Federal Government has monopoly control over its own financing. Has this monopoly control worked out well?
On December 31, 2000, the U.S. National Debt was $5.662 trillion. December 31, 2008, $10.700 trillion. December 31, 2011, $14.025 trillion. And, despite the November 2010 election results, $15.785 trillion on June 19, 2012. A 279% increase in less than eleven years, six months. ((Source: www. TreasuryDirect.gov Debt to the Penny (Daily History/Search.))
It can arguably be said that these taxation, borrowing and money creation powers, have been seriously and shamefully misused.
Changes need to be made to end this misuse. However, the needed changes go far beyond electing more responsible congressional and Presidential representation, as necessary as these steps may be.
The misuse, and potential for continued future misuse, will not be curtailed until the monopoly financing control created by the Big Four to pay for Federal expenditures is replaced by a States-based system. The CONSTITUTIONAL SUPPORT TAX (the CST, www. constitutionalsupporttax.net) should be that States-based system.
In summary the CST will do the following:
The power to lay and collect Taxes, Imposts and Excises will be repealed from Article I, Section 8, Paragraph 1 of the Constitution along with the 16th Amendment. The power to lay and collect Duties will remain with Congress.
Article 1, Section 8, Paragraph 2, authorizing Congress’ power to borrow will also be repealed.
Once Congress sets the Federal Budget each year, the dollar amount of the Budget will be divided among the States by a formula that is fair to all States. This five-part formula is explained in the HOW IT WORKS section of the website.
It will then be up to the People of each State, and state and local officials, to decide how their State will pay its mandatory share of the Budget. This is similar to Article VIII of the Articles of Confederation.
With the power to raise money through taxation, borrowing in the credit markets and through the Federal Reserve ended, Congress will have a powerful incentive to prepare yearly budgets that are well within the bounds of what the Constitution will allow. The States and People will be very skeptical about paying for anything beyond providing for the "common defence" stated in the Preamble to the Constitution. The Founding Fathers intended such non-defense expenditures be handled and financed at the state or local levels. GSA Las Vegas outings and more should become closed history, never to return. Think about this fully, and you will correctly conclude that the CST is the only way to end the Federal overspending problem.
Please read the website. Give it some time to "mentally digest." If you like the CST, spread the word about it among thd people you know. Questions can be submitted through the website or to me at the following contact information.
Thank you for your time and consideration.

Hello Craig - (An excellent write up on little "Frankie" Snider)
Why do we continue to allow the Federal Government to have the power to tax and borrow to raise money? (Article I, Section 8, Paragraphs 1 & 2 of the Constitution, plus the 16th Amendment.)
On December 31, 2000, the National Debt amounted to $5.662 trillion. December 31, 2008, $10.700 trillion. December 31, 2010, $14.025 trillion. And, despite the November 2010 election results, $15.585 trillion on March 22, 2012. ((www.TreasuryDirect.gov, Debt to the Penny (Daily History/Search.))
For nearly 100 years, since President Woodrow Wilson infused the idea of ever-growing debt into Federal Government financing, the irresponsibility with money has grown beyond comprehension.
With such easy access to money through taxation and borrowing, what incentive do "the Feds" have to spend carefully? None whatever. The hard, cold facts of nearly 100 years confirm this beyond any doubt.
There is a proposal on the table to shift to a States-based system for funding Federal expenditures and in the process ending the Federal Government’s power to tax and borrow.
The CONSTITUTIONAL SUPPORT TAX (the CST) is that proposal. The website is
1. The power to levy Taxes, Imposts and Excises Congress currently has would be repealed from Article 1 Section 8, paragraph 1 of the Constitution, along with the 16th Amendment.
2. Paragraph 2, giving Congress power to borrow money would also be repealed.
3. Once Congress sets the Federal Budget each year, the Budget will be divided among the States by a formula that is fair to all States. This five-part formula is explained on the website in the HOW IT WORKS section.
4. At the State level, the people and State officials would decide how to pay their State's mandatory share of the Budget.
Using the States as a critical checkpoint on the flow of money into "the Feds" coffers, We the People will have much greater control over the Federal Government. Please see details of how the CST will work on the website,
Political pressure point 4 of 8 in the PRESSURE POINTS section is key to reining in Federal expansionism. Point 4 of 8 will create a whole new, on-going structure to keep Federal spending and the Federal/State relationship within the parameters the Founders envisioned when drafting the Constitution.
With uncontrolled, unlimited access to America's income and wealth through taxation and borrowing, the whole U.S. Government has no incentive to restrain spending. The 89th Military Air Wing (with much over use of Air Force One) is just one of thousands of examples.
Overspending will go on, and on, and on until this uncontrolled, unlimited access is ended. Period.
