    ......IRS! :smilewinkgrin:

    The following was pulled off Facebook:

    Happy 100 Year Birthday to the IRS...
    Exactly 100 years ago our Constitutional Rights were kicked to the curb allowing the Federal Government authority to directly tax citizens as individuals and groups. State governments, representing its citizens, have the power to resist federal tyranny, individual citizens do not.

    Abuse of IRS power requires change now. From its inception the federal income tax has increasingly invaded our privacy. Requiring or encouraging us to tell them more and more about ourselves in detail we would not ever share with our own families...

    (It then proceeds to give us this link: http://www.clarksvilleonline.com/2013/09/10/federal-direct-citizen-taxes-power-grab/ [The linked article then proceeds to go into a whole lot more detail about the IRS's abuses.])

    I oppose a federal income tax, but how were constitutional rights kicked to the curb when the amendment passed according to constitutional process?

    Keep in mind- the IRS collects more than just personal income tax

    The IRS does need a complete overhall; including doing away with the overriding authority of the IRS courts.

    Chanage the tax system to the Automotic Electronic Tax - not to exceede 2% -
