Thomas Jefferson said, “When the people fear the government there is tyranny. When the government fears the people there is liberty.”

By Thomas Jefferson’s definition this country has had tyranny for, at least, 100 years. In 1913, Secretary of State Philander Knox fraudulently claimed that the 16th Amendment had been ratified by the required number of states. The 16th Amendment allows for the income tax and the internal revenue service.

A scandal is still breaking about how the IRS targeted enemies of the Obama Administration such as tea party groups for special scrutiny. Liberty and the IRS cannot coexist.

What is a real crying shame is that no organization has filed suit to reconsider the 16th Amendment. Proving in court that the 16th Amendment was never legally ratified should be enough to force a constitutional convention to either ratify or repeal the 16th Amendment. Considering that half of the states vote conservatively, it is very doubtful that the 16th Amendment could be ratified.

Bill Benson wrote a book titled “The Law That Never Was.” In that book Benson proves that the 16th Amendment was never legally ratified. “The Law That Never Was” can be found online.

Eliminating the income tax and the IRS would go a long way toward giving the people of this country liberty. Eliminating the regulatory agencies of the federal government would be another step in the right direction.

A few changes in the law could once again give the citizens of this country liberty as the founding fathers understood it.
