James Otis, Jr. (February 5, 1725 – May 23, 1783) was a lawyer in colonial Massachusetts who was an early advocate of the political views that led to the American Revolution. The phrase “Taxation without Representation is Tyranny” is usually attributed to him.
So let’s look at history for a moment.
This is my belief.
If Barack Obama is elected to the White House then the Marxist Socialists (The Democrats) will have full control Congress. What that means is I do not have an equal amount of representatives to vote NO on any taxes that are imposed.
OK, so now your motive is the 16th Amendment.
“The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several states, and without regard to any census or enumeration.”
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”
One always has to ask himself or herself. Yes it is protected by an amendment in the US Constitution, BUT is it morally correct to abuse that amendment?
That is my feeling about Barack Obama’s plan to tax “Wealthy Citizens” that earn over $250,000.00 a year.
I believe that is morally wrong. If that number was more like $500,000.00 a year that would be way more palatable than $250,000.00
Whatever happened to “Question Authority?” Oh wait that is not allowed in a Marxist Socialist Government.
