Prior to the tax on your wages, government was making plenty of money for lawful government operations through the two forms of constitutional taxation... direct and indirect. Some examples of "direct" taxes include taxes on real property and personal property taxes. These are taxes that a person must pay directly to the entity collecting the tax. The taxpayer is not able to shift the burden of these taxes onto another individual or group. Direct taxes MUST be "apportioned" according to census/population to be lawful. (Property taxes is another fraud taking place, but that is another story).

Examples of "indirect" taxes are sales tax, import taxes, excise taxes (such as what "income" should be handled as), VAT and GST taxes, alcohol, tobacco and firearms taxes, etc. They are not levied directly on the consumer and Americans can choose whether to pay this tax or not by NOT purchasing the products or services being taxed. Indirect taxes MUST be "uniform" across all 50 States. (Everyone pays the same amount of excise for the product).

Now we have a private money printing press in the control of bankers who are bilking trillions of dollars from Americans and others across the planet, but had to keep it hidden. The tax on American wages was the scam created to give us all the illusion that "we" were paying for government services and constitutional activities, when, in fact, all "we" are paying is the fraudulent interest on a debt scam and making the bankers and others rich, while allowing government to become a cancer in American's lives.

In Article 1, Section 8, Clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution, it specifically confers on Congress the express powers to "coin Money and regulate the value of it." In the Federal Government of the United States, the "nondelegation doctrine" is the principle that the Congress of the United States, being vested with "all legislative powers" by Article One, Section 1 of the United States Constitution, cannot delegate that power to anyone else. So, how is it that a private banking cartel now has that power and is bilking us all out of interest we should not have to be paying?

Do you see the ramifications of this fraud? Congress "could" print all the money government needs, INTEREST FREE, and could also provide loans for Americans. Imagine obtaining a loan for a business, school, home, car, etc., and only have to repay the principal back to government coffers. Imagine the relief this would be to all America, and how it would automatically LIMIT what government could spend because We, the People, would be watching all the money activities.

Another aspect of this scam is that, legally and constitutionally, the so-called "national debt" is based on fraud and collusion, and therefore, is a non-existent debt in truth. Fraud "vitiates" everything it comes into contact with. Fraud renders it "null and void" so what the "national debt" is, is actually a national "credit" owed to us all by the bankers, and our government officials, and we can ignore any notion that we must pay this fraudulently conceived debt back to anyone, let along thieves.

So, the tax on your wages, which they call "gains, profit and income" when it is not, is a fraudulent and unnecessary and burdensome scam which must be eliminated immediately. The IRS was created to control this financial scam and intimidate and threaten Americans into complying with something most have never proven they actually owe. Consider... if the tax on your wages were a lawful and constitutional tax, all the IRS would have to do is take the record of your earnings as supplied to them by your employer, or yourself, and create a simple tax and bill you based on a basic percent. So why don't they do that and save Americans billions on tax preparation costs? Because it is illegal!

Because "someone" knows (or knew) full well, that to do so was not constitutional or lawful. So they created the facade of a "voluntary" tax system where by we assess ourselves based on the erroneous belief that our wages are "income" and that we "owe" this tax.... "our fair share." When you sign that 1040 form, you are stating, under oath, that what you are declaring is true. The government is NOT going to try to argue with you on this self-declaration, or call you a liar, or try to prosecute you because you are claiming your wages are "income" that you "owe" a tax to the government on when you don't.

Do some more research on this to verify what the truth is, and act on it.

If you are in the system, and want to get back all that has being taken from you, (back three years) there is a lawful and provable way... ( They are having great success simply by applying the laws that many are learning about.


You may have to, understandably, re-read this article because the rabbit trail is a bit convoluted. This author has spent 14 years collecting evidence from many different sources and researchers and it has taken a while to realize the scam, and yet how easy it is to see the picture once you put the various pieces together, despite any IRS claims to the contrary. The issue is a simple one which the U.S. Supreme Court clearly defined and clarified... "the 16th Amendment conferred no new power of taxation" on wages, salary or compensation for services. Such a tax never lawfully existed prior to the 16th Amendment and certainly cannot lawfully exist today. Wages are NOT the subject of the 16th Amendment, and no law or evidence of record makes it so.

Stop believing the lie and start believing the evidence and facts. It is up to the American people to hold government accountable, and challenge it wherever it is in violation of our rights or the Constitution...

"It is not the function of our government to keep the Citizen from falling into error; it is the function of the Citizen to keep the government from falling into error." U.S. Supreme Court, American Communications Ass'n v. Douds, 339 U.S. 382, 442.

If you want to free yourself from this fraud, begin by reading through the recently filed cases against the IRS Commissioner, 7 IRS agents, the Social Security head, and Wells Fargo Bank, for the illegal levy against this author, and for failure to prove their presumptions and hearsay that defies U.S. Supreme Court and other self-authenticating evidence. This case was just ruled on (after 2 months sitting there) with a "Reverse and Remand" for just one point, but the actual Supreme Court evidence was ignored as was most of the rest of the damning evidence was, and the Defendants cannot and will not answer the challenges...

Freedom is not free. Prove you actually have lawful "income" and pay what you lawfully owe, or stop claiming (under the penalty of perjury) that your wages are lawful "gain profit or income" every year on the 1040 form. Time to free yourself from this brainwashing and help others to do the same. How about a big raise, and how about limiting big government that has usurped authority over us far too long?
