Rock'n,

I agree with you that we are a nation of laws. The founders set it up that way. But, the tax code laws were made law even though they were unconstitutional. These laws never existed until 1913. The supreme court went along and ruled they were constitutional. That was during the term of Woodrow Wilson, a progressive. Jefferson feared this happening in the future. In his private writings, Jefferson's warnings to the citizens to watch out for government abuses by stating, "In confidence of power let no more confidence be given to man but bind them by the chains of the constitution". Income taxes are in no way mentioned in the constitution. Yet, the people did not resist and 'throw the bastards out".

The founders started this grand experiment by their fervent belief that if people lived by the rules in the constitution, allowing people to pursue their happiness unhindered, they should be allowed to keep any financial gains garnered from their individual efforts. Any other route would fail.

They believed all men are created equal, with gifts from above, that they were to pursue with the best of their abilities. And, wherever that took them in life was up to them. If they didn't make the pursuit, then they deserved what they received ... poverty.

Later, Ben Franklin sealed the deal with his concern about the flaws in some people in the future. He is credited with stating, "When the people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic". He only meant if we succumbed to our human, frail instinct. I believe we can state we've got a great start down this path that will lead to our nation's eventual demise, unless we grow up and fix it!

As for your concerns about class warfare, Lincoln stated, "You cannot make a poor man rich by making a rich man poor".

If you are so hell bent to gripe about the federal tax laws, why aren't you leading an effort to demand their repeal? Going further, why aren't you working hard to get rid of all the department's of the federal government, reporting to the president, that are clearly unconstitutional as well. Neither the tax nor a president's cabinet were mentioned in the constitution!

What are you going to do when the Supreme Court determines ObamaCare is constitutional? The constitution provides only for an excise tax be collected on goods or services being delivered among the states. The commerce clause provides for no taxes being levied on the health care industry or the citizens. If you are forced to purchase a product you may or may not want, then how is that constitutional? The insurance is not permitted to sell state to state. You can only buy health insurance in Texas for Texans.
