According to Cha-Cha, the information website on (supposedly) everything, the great novel Moby Dick is 864 pages long. Wikipedia claims that War & Peace is 1440 pages in hardcover form. Each of these great classic novels were written long before radio, television, I-Pads, I-Phones or the Internet. The point here being if someone wants to read one of the above, they should be prepared to sit on the porch for the better part of the summer and drink gallons of lemonade while doing so.
Former House Speaker Pelosi said it about as eloquently as she could when she informed America, ""We have to pass the [health care ] bill so that you can find out what is in it."
Nearly two years later, we now know that after 2700 pages we are the proud recipients of new government bureaucratic red-tape the likes of which we have never seen before. We are the proud owners of twenty-two new taxes, government controlled-everything regarding our health-- and now the Congress can do pretty much anything they desire, if they call it a tax. Side-note: You do realize that this will now allow the Federal Government the ability to control your hot dog and Coca-Cola intake, right? Add smoking, drinking a beer, eating a hamburger or visiting Taco Bell on your lunch hour, too. They will now be able to instruct that you must have the benefit of a mile-long walk every evening, or you pay a fine for not doing so. NO, I am not kidding, America. Look at New York City and their Mayor Bloomberg. The process has already started, with the banning of Big Gulps. In the Big Apple, you're now restricted to 16oz Cokes.
Your mission to save America is as follows: Once you've finished reading this, send it to ten friends on the first day, then they'll send to ten friends on the second day. If 100 of you do this, within one week these instructions would have made it to some ONE HUNDRED MILLION mailboxes. WE CAN ACCOMPLISH THIS!
After the Supreme Court's June 28th ruling, I contacted a fellow I know named Craig Bergman.
Craig and I have agreed on many issues in the past, but we've also had some very fiery discussions on topics we disagree on. The one thing I will have to take my hat off to Craig about, is his vast knowledge on issues such as this one. Craig's political experience goes back to the Jack Kemp campaign for President. He cut his political teeth on that campaign and has been active in Conservative causes and politics ever since. His resume for political and government knowledge can be traced to five Presidential races, six Gubernatorial races, eight U.S. Senate races, dozens of Congressional races and numerous state and local races, in nearly every state.
The bottom line is this, Craig would be the perfect person to contact if one wanted to know how to actually get rid of this monstrosity of a health-care bill. I called Craig today and began asking questions.
According to Mr. Bergman, what really has to happen is this. Currently sitting in Congress is a bill with sixty-eight coauthors. It strips the Federal Government of the ability to tax citizens individually, and turns over all individual taxing authority to the States. In this bill, the United States Congress could not set and implement income taxes any longer. In other words, it would repeal the 16th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. Craig makes the point that for the first 140 years or so, our nation had no Internal Revenue Service or Federal Income Tax. They were not imposed on America until ninety-nine years ago.
What would happen if a bill like this is implemented? You (The American Citizen) will pay much lower in taxes, for one thing. It's much easier for the good folks of Iowa to walk into the Capitol building and confront their Representative, than it is to walk into the U.S.Capitol and do so.
It would be easy for me to write an entire seven-page long essay on this topic. Here's what I want each of you across the fruited plain to do. Visit a couple of websites, listen to a couple of programs in which Craig explains (in very concise detail) what needs to happen to implement it.
America, this is our only chance to stop something that will destroy our nation. Make no mistake about it, America. THIS OBAMACARE BILL WILL DESTROY OUR NATION BEYOND RECOGNITION!
Follow these instruction carefully:
1. Listen to Craig's explanations at (www.americaswakeupcall.net)
2. Find and join a great organization that's representing you, and donate generously! We are working hard to get this done. www.restoringamericaproject.org OR www.americansforprosperity.org Both of these organizations are going to battle on your behalf on many issues like this one that are stripping you of your liberty.
3. Contact your Congressman, and tell him or her that you want them to rally support for this bill. Once there are enough votes to get it passed, you want them to bring it to the floor for a vote. Tell them that you demand your Government be given back to the people. If they do not want to do this, you will work tirelessly to defeat them in the Mid-Terms.
4. Get involved! Pass this on, keeping in mind the math from earlier in this article. Without you, the American people, nothing happens. Don't expect your neighbor to do something first! You do it, and set an example!
Together, America, we can return our country to how our Founding Fathers intended it to be. Get busy, America! Get involved, donate some money, join an organization that is involved and pray hard. It can happen, but it won't without it starting here. Remember every journey begins with just one step. This is your step!

That's quite a bill.
Is there somewhere specifically on the link where one can listen to Craig’s explanation? It directs the listener to his website but noting specifically to this income tax repeal bill. Thanks.
Unless I am mistaken, a congressional bill cannot overturn a Constitutional Amendment. You need to put forth an effort to Repeal the Amendment in question, in the same manner as if you were trying to add another Amendment. In other words, the congress has to pass the amendment, and the states need to ratify it. And is it a simple majority of the sates (26) or a super majority?
I believe that this is a non-starter given the info presented...
True but in order to start the process you must introduce a formal account of the intentions to a legislative body (Congress and the 50 States, 57 if you are strung out on cocaine).
As the Constitution IS the supreme law of the land and no congressional law, statutory law, Penal code, or county ordinance can trump it.
So ask yourself why we are bound to this Federal Behemoth???
We are born with inalienable rights given to us by our creator. These rights are not given to us by man or government, therefore they can NOT be taken from us by the government or man. Only YOU can VOLUNTARILY give up those rights.
You are born a sovereign citizen over the government and you still to this day have a right to exercise those sovereign rights.
I am going to give you the condensed version and link you to all of the proof you need to verify it for yourself.
In 1871, congress passed the “Act of 1871” which created the corporation we now know as “The Federal Government”.
The District of Columbia Act of 1871
What did it do?
Now picture yourself working for a corporation. They offer you a “Benefit” [a paycheck] and you accept it, you are now subject to their rules and they can change the rules at whim.
This is exactly what they have done.
You have been tricked into surrendering your sovereign rights by excepting any one of a multitude or “Benefits”.
Below are some websites that will give each one of you the proof [documents and court cases] of what and how they have done this.

September 30, 2007
161 Federal Tax Charges, 0 Convictions
IRS Suffers Staggering Defeat
Tax Questions Raised Regarding
Gold and Silver Coins Used to Pay Wages
Around noon on Monday, September 17th, a Las Vegas federal jury returned its verdict refusing to convict nine defendants of any of the 161 federal tax crimes they had been charged with. The charges included income tax evasion, willful failure to file and conspiracy to evade taxes.
The four-month trial centered around the family businesses of Robert Kahre who paid numerous workers for their labor with circulating gold and silver U.S. coins, and did not report the wages. The payments took place over several years, allegedly totaling at least $114 million dollars.
On September 20, 2007, three days after the federal trial’s dramatic conclusion, the Las Vegas Review Journal, reportedly under a degree of public pressure, ran its first (and last) story about the outcome of the trial. To this day, with exception of the single article by the Review Journal, no major media entity has published a news story regarding the outcome of this important federal criminal tax case.
The censorship of this important news story is, unfortunately, not unexpected given the continuing, worldwide onslaught against the U.S. “dollar” — specifically the Federal Reserve variety, and the ever growing numbers of Federal Reserve Notes required to trade for an actual ounce of silver, gold, oil, or for that matter, anything.
In short, this failed prosecution has coalesced and exposed truths our Government desperately needs to hide from the People: the truth about our money, the truth about our (privately-owned) central bank, and the truth about the fraudulent nature of the operation and enforcement of the federal income tax system.

According to defense attorney Joel Hansen, who represented co-defendant Alex Loglia, the primary “willfulness” defense was that the defendants believed they had no legal obligation to withhold, pay income taxes or report anything to the government because, in part, the nominal (i.e., face value) of the gold and silver coins is so small as to fall beneath the reporting thresholds set by the Internal Revenue Code.
The Defendants also argued that regardless of the valuation of the coins for internal revenue purposes, there is no law that requires average American workers to file or pay direct, un-apportioned taxes on the fruits of their labor.
The Government argued that the payments in solid gold and silver U.S. coins must be considered at their bullion (i.e., intrinsic full-market) value when considering the worth of the wages for purposes of the internal revenue code.
Attorney Hansen cited two Supreme Court cases bolstering Defendant’s monetary argument at the heart of the defendants “willfulness” defense.
The essence of the argument is that under the Constitution Congress is obligated by law to mint and circulate such coins as demand requires, and must establish the value of coins as they are used as legal tender, but the coins’ market value, arising as valuable personal “property,” is a distinct, separate attribute of such coins, and is of no legal consequence if the coins are used as legal tender.
In other words, if a worker is paid with such coins, his taxable “income” (if any) can only be the face value indicated upon the coin money paid — i.e., $1.00 for a circulating silver dollar or $50 for a circulating gold U.S. coin. Not surprisingly, the IRS has never issued any public guidance regarding this significant issue.
The first case, Ling Su Fan v. U.S., 218 US 302 (1910) establishes the legal distinction of a coin bearing the “impress” of the sovereign:
“These limitations are due to the fact that public law gives to such coinage a value which does not attach as a mere consequence of intrinsic value. Their quality as a legal tender is an attribute of law aside from their bullion value. They bear, therefore, the impress of sovereign power which fixes value and authorizes their use in exchange.”
The second case, Thompson v. Butler, 95 US 694 (1877), establishes that the law makes no legal distinction between the values of coin and paper money used as legal tender:
“A coin dollar is worth no more for the purposes of tender in payment of an ordinary debt than a note dollar. The law has not made the note a standard of value any more than coin. It is true that in the market, as an article of merchandise, one is of greater value than the other; but as money, that is to say, as a medium of exchange, the law knows no difference between them.”
Defense attorney Hansen confirmed that members of the jury were able to actually hold and inspect the gold and silver U.S. coins paid to the workers.
After almost four months of testimony and three and a half days of deliberation, the jury did not convict any of the defendants of any of the 161 crimes alleged. Although some defendants were acquitted of multiple counts, and several were acquitted completely, others may have to stand for a retrial if the Government brings charges a second time.
The Review Journal reported the jury foreman claimed DOJ prosecutors admitted they were “shocked” by the outcome.
In March 2007, the primary defendant, Bob Kahre, filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against the prosecutor and IRS agents who had conducted what he alleges to be an unlawful search and seizure raid. In 2005, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals refused to overturn a previous District Court ruling holding that the federal prosecutor is not entitled to absolute immunity for the unlawful raid.

The media suppression of this story is similar to the widespread mainstream media suppression of the July 11, 2007 acquittal of Louisiana attorney Tommy Cryer who was also charged with multiple federal income tax crimes and relied upon numerous Supreme Court precedents and U.S. tax laws to establish his “willfulness” defense.

This sounds like what the Cato Institute calls Reverse Revenue Sharing. It would lead to competition among states and, thus, to efficient government and would make gov't accountable to the People. Crony Capitalists would fight it in a big way.
