A Redress of Grievance Ignored
The right to petition the government for a redress of grievance is a fundamental right guaranteed in the 1st amendment of the US Constitution. Yet what happens when the Government has grown so big and out of control that it simply and arrogantly ignores any redress petitioned by the people. In November of 2002 "We the People" foundation petitioned the Government for Redress against the IRS. On August 25th Federal Judge Emmet Sullivan ruled that government does not have to answer to the People, even though its guaranteed in the First Amendment. In short order the Government does not have to show the law which it uses to send people to prison. So the age old question remains, Is there a law that requires us to pay a tax on our labor? As convoluted as the tax code may seem it all boils down to two things. One several Supreme Court rulings have found that the 16th amendment granted no new powers to tax. Period end of story. Two congress can only tax either direct and indirect. However all direct taxes must be apportioned. And all indirect taxes must be uniformed. Since the Income tax is not apportioned, and the 16th amendment granted no new powers to tax, where does the law saying I have to pay income tax on my labor exist? It's a simple straight forward request, show us the law that allows you to tax our labor. We have asked for and been denied access to the very law they use to imprison people for a non crime. We asked for a redress of grievance and been it has been ignored. We have been lied to and manipulated into believing that it is our duty and responsibility to pay taxes. When in fact the tax code is itself un-American. We asked for and have been denied our rights and freedoms by the very people whose only duty is to protect our rights and freedoms. I think its about time we all just said enough is enough and I just refuse to go along quietly any longer.
