It is now the month of December in the year 2009. The USA and the world are in the midst of a hard recession.
The president of the US, Barrack Husein Obama has been in office for eleven months. MASSIVE government spending is in progress with HUGE government “bail outs,” accompanied by seizure and control of banks and industries which are placed under the control of an OBAMA APPOINTED Czar.
OBAMA, has personally pushed congress for legislation that would allow the government to take control of the health care industry and what is called a “Cap and Trade” law allowing the government to Tax emissions of carbon dioxide gases.
This is just two of a big list of legislation on the OBAMA wish list, all of which are designed to take the USA down the road to Socialism, with extremely high, unfair TAXES, all targeted and directed at the pleasure of the current administration.
The purpose, here, is to LIMIT AND DEFINE THE KIND AND AMOUNT OF TAXES THAT MAY BE LEVIED AGAINST THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and to create an ABSOLUTELY, FAIR and BALANCED TAX SYSTEM for the USA.
This can ONLY mean that:
CONGRESS is NOT allowed to change the tax system anytime they feel like they want to, IN ORDER TO, REWARD or PUNISH any PERSON, any GROUP, or any ENTITY.
ONLY ONE TAX WILL BE LEVIED and it is the only tax that is ever permitted to be collected!
There will be NO WITHHOLDINGS TAKEN FROM PAY CHECKS
THERE IS TO BE NO RECORDS, KEPT BY THE GOVERNMENT , OF INDIVIDUAL PERSONAL OR ENTITY INCOME AMOUNTS
THERE IS TO BE NO RECORD, KEPT BY THE GOVERNMENT, OF PERSONAL OR ENTITY SPENDING AMOUNTS
Because Social Security must now be paid from the general fund, and all people, regardless of income, must pay taxes on all their purchases, Social Security payments must be changed so that all are equal in amount.
Unemployment Insurance, Workman's Compensation Insurance and all other kinds of PAY withholdings for worker benefits must be paid from for from the general fund of the paying entity.
Union dues and payments for union benefits are not to be withheld BY EMPLOYERS from employees pay.
Employees are to be paid the full amount earned with NO EXCEPTIONS and NO DEDUCTIONS OF ANY KIND
EVERYONE must pay taxes WHEN they SPEND MONEY.
Remember, MONEY IS WORTHLESS, UNLESS, YOU CAN SPEND IT. WHEN you SPEND IT, YOU WILL PAY THE TAXES.
NO ONE can be singled out to pay any UNFAIR TAXES.
NO ONE can be singled out to NOT PAY their FAIR TAXES.
Everyone can see through this totally transparent tax system. The so called “rich” people will always buy the best and most expensive product and will pay a proper tax an that higher amount.
People with less money will adjust their purchases to fit their budget and pay taxes only on the lower amount they spend.
It is not really important how much money a person makes or hordes or accumulates. Such money is of no use WHATSOEVER, UNTIL AND UNLESS, THEY SPEND IT.
FROM THE ONSET, IT MUST BE SIMPLE AND PRECLUDE ANY CHANCE FOR “OPPORTUNISTIC TINKERING AND CHANGING” BY POLITICOS
AMENDMENT XVI (SIXTEEN) to the USA CONSTITUTION,which is shown below, in its entirety, HAS, as of this writing, caused THOUSANDS of pages of “Income Tax Law” to be written, all of it unfair, targeted to special interests and therefore, illegal and unconstitutional. Laws allowing for preferential TAXING or EXEMPTING FROM TAX, any SPECIFIED PERSONS OR ENTITIES were not given in this amendment. Non the less, countless thousands of different tax laws in unending changes have produced the WORST and MOST TANGLED tax method EVER DEVISED by any government.
Amendment 16, save for the heading and note, is a one sentence, one paragraph amendment. The total CONFUSED RESULT is tax cheats and failures to pay and an army of workers studying the new laws each year, who prepare, for a fee, tax returns required to comply with this totally unfair tax system.
This is the complete text of Amendment XVI:
Passed by Congress July 2, 1909. Ratified February 3, 1913.
Note: Article I, section 9, of the Constitution was modified by amendment 16.
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.
The complete text of Amendment XVI must be AMENDED as proposed herein.
Since the day that I filed my first Income Tax return, I have always thought that THE INFORMATION REQUIRED by the GOVERNMENT is an invasion of personal privacy. The Government really does not have the right to know every thing you do. NO PLACE IN THE CONSTITUTION IS THE GOVERNMENT GRANTED THE POWER TO CAUSE YOU TO DIVULGE THE INFORMATION THAT THE IRS HAS DECIDED, OVER THE YEARS, THAT YOU MUST SUPPLY to the government so that the government can try to manipulate the economy.
By the time I had filed my fifth income tax return, I had come to realize that entire USA TAX SYSTEM was a political football & lawmakers used it to achieve unfair and unbalanced results designed to enrich special interests in both the public and private sectors. SINCE THAT TIME I have despised the IRS & Income Tax System as it has existed in the USA since Amendment 16 was adopted.
I am personally DEDICATED to bring about a change in UNITED STATES Federal Legislation that will put an end to the INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE as we know it today.
Further, I am DEDICATED to a BALANCED BUDGET, a REDUCTION in the National Debt, every year, until it is paid off.
And legislation prohibiting ANY INCREASE of the National Debt, except an EMERGENCY Declared by a two/thirds majority of BOTH HOUSES OF CONGRESS.
TO ACCOMPLISH THESE GOALS
I PROPOSE ONE SINGLE
It should be worded something like this:
Note: Section 1, Article 9, of the Constitution was modified by Amendment 16; Section 1, Article 9, and Amendment 16 are modified by Amendment (XXVIII:)
Amendment 28 also affects the laws of every State or Providence, Territory, and/or Protectorate in/of the United States of America.
Neither the Congress, nor any governing body of any State, Province, Territory and/or Protectorate, 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. Further, this shall apply to all Counties or and all cities, townships, villages and any and all local bodies of government of whatever nature.
Amendment 16 to the Constitution is repealed in it's entirety.
Neither the Congress nor any other governing body within the United States its various territories and/or protectorates shall make any law of any kind or nature providing for taxes, other than a tax on retail sales to the Final User who purchases a product or service. This shall be true also for taxes on properties on any kind or nature.
It is noted here that everyone, not just property owners, benefits from the departments of police and fire and all other services provided by any government in the USA. Therefore, everyone should help to pay for these services, NOT, just property owners.
For the purpose of this law, the “Final User,” “product” and “service” are defined as follows:
Final User is defined as the person or entity purchasing the product or service for use by such person or entity. It does not include materials or parts used in the manufacture of a finished or complete product or the finished product purchased for resale.
Product, is defined as any item of any kind whatsoever that is sold to any other person or entity, for which recompense of any kind or nature whatsoever is charged or paid.
Service, is defined as any and all kinds of work, labor, task, or favor rendered by any person or entity to any other person or entity, for which recompense of any kind or nature whatsoever is charged or paid.
No other tax, or taxes, of any kind whatsoever shall be levied or collected by the Federal government, the State Government of any State,Province, District, Territory, or Protectorate, or the local County or Parrish, City, Village, Township or any other body of government of any kind whatsoever, in/of the United States of America.
The total Limits on the percentages that are collected for all taxes are set herein, and shall not be exceeded, except that, by a two/thirds majority of both houses, limits may be raised for periods of not more than one year at any one time.
Limits are as follows:
The total of all combined taxes of the Federal, State and local governments of whatever nature shall not exceed 43% of the Gross National Product. (GNP)
For the Federal government, not more than twenty percent (21%) of the Gross National Product. (GNP)
For the units of States, Provinces, Districts, Territories and or Protectorates, not more than twelve percent (12%) of the Gross Sales finalized within the legally defined territories of said Provinces, Districts, Territories, and or Protectorates.
For Counties or Parrish, Not more than 8% of their Gross Retail Sales.
For all other local bodies of government, not more than 3% of their Gross Retail Sales.
All persons and entities collecting monies from the public, including any and all persons or entities, for products or services to the final User must collect the tax required by the various governments and remit the same to each according to their prorated share. Such remittance to be made at least every week and for high volume outlets taking in $1,000 gross, or more, per day, remittance shall be made daily.
ALL government entities are required to submit annual budgets. All budgets shall have a contingency fund of 15% above the total amount that is alloted for spending on that entities business for the business year.
All 15% contingency fund monies are to be held for use only in cases of shortfalls in tax income. All unspent monies shall be held for a period of three years, based on the physical year for each entity. After three years the monies form the oldest year must be applied to reduce any debt owed by that entity. If no debt is owed surplus funds must go into the next years general fund to operate towards a reduction in the percentage of taxes to be collected for the next year.
Watch for changes and additions !
all imported items must be taxed
items bought in one State where tax was paid will not be taxed in another State
efforts to avoid tax will be made, when caught persons trying to avoid tax should be made to pay twice as a penalty.
efforts by politicos to go around the constitution should result in removal from office
