Don't you get it? The scoundrels at Jeckyl Island who owned 1/6 of the WORLD at that time, needed to get the 16th Amendment in place so they could print money ad infinitum and use the IRS as our Gestapo-our police state. Bill Benson proved that 3/4 of the states did not ratify the 16th amendment as it is a direct tax. Rapscallions have been manipulating the system for at least 100 years through lies, lies and more lies, with the courts in cahoots. When, oh when, will we arise and get these evil people out and our Constitution back? When is the word TREASON going to be used???
