Federal Income Taxes are unconstitutional

Here is a site and an article concerning some rumors that I have been hearing lately.

One of the rumors that I have heard is that the 16th amendment was not ratified. The other one now is that the Federal government is not apportioning the taxes collected properly. Another apparent conflict is that the 16th amendment looks to conflict with the original constitution.

I think these are valid arguments concerning my discourse about the fact that the Federal Government has not been following the constitution for over one hundred years and that may explain the reason why people have an underlying disrespect for our Government and country as a whole. I don't care how much people are lied to there is a point of discomfort with what our government is doing that goes beyond describing.
I have no doubts that this is a root cause of G.B. having such a hard time with his efforts. Not that the people have any reason to doubt his desires but that he is not giving the things of the constitution proper attention and redress concerning the correct authorization and use of power by our Government. The people are right to feel that the Government we have today is not built on a rock solid foundation but on shifting sand so to speak and as such people though probably financially secure are not secure in any of their social life.

Funny thing about it people are exacerbating their insecurities by accumulating an ever increasing amount of debt. Maybe the pundits of old were right in the fact that the masses are like a herd animal being led to a slaughter. With that I give a hearty HA HA, I told you so. Don't ask me to join y'all , that's all your own problems.

Many many times I have heard people say that they just don't know what the future may bring. I don't blame them when they are whipsawed back and forth between liberal dumbocrats and Republicans. By the way it is the blindocrats that got the 16th amendment passed and are the main offenders of the constitution as if we didn't already know that, and I have no doubts that Kerry, if he was to win would continue to insult the very document that would have gotten him the job in the most powerful nation in the world.
Here is another dichotomy. How can the U.S.A. profess it's ideals of Republic when it itself is not following it's own advice?

Like I said people even though they may not have a conscious knowledge of what's going on, somewhere in their subconscious they know that things aren't right. So until another Ronald Reagan comes along and spells out what he is going to do and then does it or tries to do it, it won't matter whether it's a Demoncrat or a Republican in office they will experience (in the words of the great King James I and IV)nuthin but trouble.

Anyway here is an excerpt and a link to the article site. I think you may find it enlightening

FACT #10: Congress passed an Act in 1894 to impose a tax on the incomes of citizens and resident aliens of the United States. The constitutionality of the Act was challenged in 1895 and the Supreme Court said that the law was UNCONSTITUTIONAL because it was a DIRECT TAX that was not apportioned as the Constitution required. (see Pollock v. Farmer's Loan & Trust Co., 157 US 429 [1895]).
