Before the Income Tax

This year — 2013 — marks the 100th anniversary of the modern income tax, a tax that dominates the revenue scheme of the federal government today. Individual income taxes accounted for about 45 percent of all federal tax revenue in 2012, along with 35 percent for Social Security and Medicare payroll taxes (which are also a tax on income), 10 percent for corporate income taxes, and only 10 percent for all other tax sources.

It wasn’t always so. Prior to ratification of the 16th (income tax) Amendment in February 1913, the federal government managed its few constitutional responsibilities without an income tax, except during the Civil War period. During peacetime, it did so largely — or even entirely — on import taxes called “tariffs.” Congress could afford to run the federal government on tariffs alone because federal responsibilities did not include welfare programs, agricultural subsidies, or ...

it shows to me that we are a spineless generation, a don quixote generation that would rather chase windmills than stand firm in truth and righteousness. yes, the power of a preacher who says it all, and the sweet move of the Holy Spirit that brings restoration!

We need hear what should be over and over, that we not forget. Most have forgotten precisely because they do not hear it. Kind of like back slidden lukewarm Christians, who do not hear the power of truth preached, so it becomes cloudy, then fritters away.

Rufus -- it almost seemed the poster was trying to introduce confusion, but was the 16th Amendment even properly ratified?

They told me in school that the gov was 3 branches -- leg, exec, and jud. the first two being elected with checks and balances.

since then I have seen that the printing of money, income taxes and all things money was given to european bankers and called the "FED" and in Greenspan interviews he clearly says he doesn't answer to anyone.

why do we keep repeating what we heard in 8th grade civics when what we live in is not that?

Freedom requires the free flow of ideas, knowledge, capital, goods and people.
It is progressive/communistic ideology that brought in the 16th amendment and the "income" tax and took a formerly free people and turned them into tax and debt slaves to international banksters. How one could define the rejection of this ideology as "progressive nonsense" is quite baffling.
