“[The] power to tax involves the power to destroy….” -Chief Justice John Marshall, McCulloch v. Maryland, 1819
In it’s taxing power, the FERAL government has taken to destroying individuals and organizations with which the Administration disagrees. This is not limited to the 0bama Administration. We know that the Nixon administration did it; we know that the Clinton administration did it; and probably every other administration since Nixon has too.
Without the income tax and thus the creation of tax-exempt organizations, no-one would care if pastors were campaigning from the pulpit. No-one would care if this TEA Party group campaigned for a candidate or not. No-one would care if the Sierra Club or Planned Parenthood gave money to candidates (except that Planned Parenthood gets money from the government).
It is not the government’s business what organizations I donate to, and the government should not be de facto supporting organizations though tax deductions. It is not the government’s business how many children we have, how old they are, or where they go to college. It is not the government’s business how much we make or how much we have saved.
It is past time to repeal the Sixteenth Amendment.
