Scofflaws are paid from tax revenues. The court rooms are built with tax revenues. The staffs that the Judges boss around are all paid for by tax dollars. It is a hideous and apparently acceptable conflict of interest to have judges whose livelihood depends on tax revenues to judge tax cases, and rare indeed are those few judges who have actually ruled on the letter of the law (or the absence of same).
If we had a fair and honest tax code, it would fit in a pamphlet.
The volume after volume after volume after volume after volume after volume after of the current tax code represents the accumulation of decades of special favors granted to favored supporters to exempt them from this or that tax, in order to allow more money to stay in the pocket.
Also, by keeping the tax code complex, Americans are so busy trying to figure out whether they should use an IRS Form 203945Q (Rev B) to report the wood chips in the hamster's cage that they are not paying attention to the whole amount being taken or what it is used for.
Finally, the major reason that the tax code is so complex is to obscure the fact that the income tax on wages and salaries may not actually be the letter of the law, both because of the legal definition of what constitutes "income" and the fact that the 16th Amendment cannot be proven to have been ratified. Indeed Judge James C. Fox declared in the transcript of Sullivan V. United States that it appeared that the 16th amendment did in fact FAIL ratification!
On January 10, 2008, the Federal District Court in Chicago issued a permanent injunction against me on the grounds that I was falsely telling people the 16th Amendment was not ratified. The Court refused to look at the evidence of the non-ratification of the 16th Amendment, deciding that the facts necessary to prove my statement was true were "irrelevant," What has America come to when the government can accuse you of lying and prohibit you from presenting a defense in a so called court of law? My attorney, Jeffrey A. Dickstein, will be filing an appeal to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals. I urge you to review the pleadings filed in this case so you can see for yourself the tyranny being practiced in our courts.
