IMMEDIATELY THE INTERNAL Revenue Code was jiggered for social engineering, it was corrupt. That would be about thirty seconds after the 16th Amendment was ratified. The fundamental concept of an income tax is corrupt, and nothing in the history of the thing suggests anyone ever tried to rein in the corruption.
And all this news means is that, now, it’s out in the open.
There will be a lot of pain before it’s over, but it’s becoming ever more clear: we must abolish the income tax, repeal the 16th, and dismantle the IRS. The whole edifice is fundamentally incompatible with a free republic.
