This whole problem started 99 years ago with the 16th Amendment that the men who owned 1/6 of the world met in secret to devise, then had Philander Knox evilly announce had been ratified by 3/4 of the states but which had NOT as proved by Bill Benson. The power to tax is the power to destroy. Our income tax is a DIRECT tax which is why it was not ratified. But, how can the International Bankers profit without their private central banks to steal our wealth, manipulate our politicians and corrupt our courts? I've read that they now own 80% of the entire world, while we just go on enjoying our "bread and circuses."

The 17Th amendment was also crucial to their plans. Stealing the power of the states to check federal power. Without representatives in congress the states are powerless to stop legislation that does not recognise their sovereignty.

Absolutely! That was done during the "progressive era," so as to, as the lie went, stop manipulation at the state level. Where better to have oversight than at the state level?

We're fiddling while Washington burns us up!

Exactly right Mr. D!

To make it even worse, not only was the continuous oversight of state legislatures removed from US Senator's, but the Senators retained their 6-year terms, so they are basically unaccountable to anyone except for an election every six years.
Last Thursday, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled to uphold Obamacare's individual mandate (indictment) to collect more taxes from you and me. President Barack Obama's taxation shell game, which flies in the face of the freedoms we celebrate this week, is just one more reason his presidency and Obamacare need to be overturned this November.

Chief Justice John Roberts wasn't kidding when he offered the commentary about the court's ruling: "It is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices." Obamacare is taxation unleashed!

Despite the fact that in 2009, Obama repeatedly denied to ABC News correspondent George...
