As Americans and as Tax Payers, we ceded most of our Liberties to the IRS the day the IRS was created. It gave the politicians a way of buying votes through cradle to grave entitlements and give-a-ways and it also allowed international bankers to make money by promoting paranoia thus allowing them to become rich beyound imagination through their holdings in the various military contractors.
Before 1913, federal income taxes were rare and short-lived. America became the most prosperous nation on earth. The U.S. Government did not try to police the world or play "nanny" to everyone from cradle to grave. People took responsibility for themselves, their families, and their communities. That is how the founders of America thought it should be. And it worked. It can again!
