It is long past time for an open discussion in this country about the income tax. And this discussion needs to occur without fear of arrest, prosecution and imprisonment, and without the misinformation and intimidation so commonly associated with questioning its validity. Because in reality, the income tax is one of the first great deceptions of the 20th Century as it accompanied the Federal Reserve Act of 1913.
Obama intends to implement his unconstitutional socialist take over of the health care industry through the Internal Revenue Service-aka, income taxes–and thus this discussion is even more urgent.
There are hundreds of websites that purport to break down every penny of your tax dollar and where it was spent. The theme with these sites is that most of our tax dollars go to government services, often focusing on how much goes to military spending. But notice these don’t separate federal taxes paid on items versus federal taxes paid on income.
In a January 1984 report to President Reagan, A Private Sector Survey on Cost Control, several important points were made, and in particular, found that resistance to additional income taxes would be even more widespread if people were aware that
- With two-thirds of everyone’s personal income taxes wasted or not collected, 100% of what is collected is absorbed solely by interest on the Federal Government contributions to transfer payments.
- In other words, all individual income tax revenues are gone before one nickel is spent on the services which taxpayers expect from their government.”
Devvy Kidd is even more direct:
So what we have is a central bank issuing worthless paper “money” that controls our economy, our lives and our future. This private banking cartel was unconstitutionally granted this power by a devious, scheming group of senators back in 1913. In essence what they did was place the American people into indentured servitude by forcing The People to pay usury on worthless fiat currency (paper money created out of nothing), not to fund the government, but to enrich the bankers and fund wars in which America should never be involved. This system exists not to fund the government, but to allow the U.S. Congress carte blanche power to continue funding unconstitutional agencies and programs by providing them with a bottomless source of worthless ink.
Federal Reserve Act of 1913
Free Republic calls the formation of the Federal Reserve deadly hostility to the Constitution. The unconstitutionality of the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 is based in part on Article I, Section I of the Constitution:
ALL legislative Powers herein granted shall be VESTED in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.
“Vested” means, then, and now, “held completely, permanently, and inalienably.” From Vijay Kumar, Candidate for Congress (TN),
The power “To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures” was vested completely, permanently, and inalienably in the elected REPRESENTATIVES, and no authority was granted in the Constitution for them to re-vest that power in a PRIVATE CORPORATION that is entirely out of reach of THE PEOPLE, from whom ALL powers derive. (Emphasis added)
So with the Federal Reserve, Congress could pay for anything it wanted by borrowing from the private, Federal Reserve; in turn the people were required to pay back the debt through income taxes, or the 16th Amendment, conveniently illegally declared ratified also in 1913.
Take a look at this chart, which shows government spending as a percent of gross domestic product. Promptly after the twin blow of the Federal Reserve and the Sixteenth Amendment, Wilson (who had campaigned as the peace candidate) entered World War I and vastly expanded government and government spending. Warren Harding campaigned on a ‘return to normalcy’ and dismantled much of the government structure Wilson had created, only to have it revived again in the administration of FDR, where government size and spending increased again. To pay off the debt, income tax rose.
While the rise in income taxes can be directly related to the debt incurred by the Nation thanks to a lazy 63rd Congress, what occurred during the development of social security? My gut feeling is that Congress spent the social security and did not save it. Instead of paying down the debt the Congress keeps spending and the Fed keeps printing.
You’re supposed to stop digging when you are in a hole.
The Wasted 20th Century, and the Challenge of the 21st
The wasteland that we face in front of us is due directly to the wasted opportunity of the 20th Century…brought to us by: the bankers of Europe and the U.S.; a lazy Congress; an ideologically driven Supreme Court; corrupt politicians; clashes of political ideologies; endless power struggles, an uninformed and non-engaged public, and endless war.
In stating this, I am not underestimating or minimizing the real world-wide threats faced by the United States during this time. But what I am asking is to imagine our Country without the Federal Reserve and the 16th Amendment. An understand that this has been an addiction to money and power that must be broken in the 21st Century. This is one of the lessons of the events of 2012, the Age of Aquarius, the thousand years of peace that are spoken of.
Only then can we understand the wasted opportunity, and the goal of our movement forward now.
Republicans, democrats, judges, politicians, and professors all are hiding from and dodging this knowledge. Oh Republicans will argue about spending and taxes, but never raise the unconstitutionality of the 16th Amendment or the ongoing damage of the Federal Reserve to our system. The socialist democrats just don’t care and are going to milk this system for all its got.
It is time to draw a line in the sand. Understand the seriousness of drawing that line. Everyone needs to start talking about this and asking questions openly, and arming themselves with information, which is readily available. Do not forget about your Seventh Amendment rights to a jury.
And then when there is critical mass, it is time to join with each other and starve the beast…err, beasts–the Fed and the out of control government.
