Action Alert: Repeal the 16th Amendment

Earlier this week the House voted to hold former IRS gestapo Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress for her refusal to answer questions in regards to her role in using the IRS to target Liberty & Tea Party groups.

One of the most destructive forces in America emerged 101 years ago when the 16th Amendment to the Constitution went into effect. It gave Congress the ability to levy taxes on the income of working Americans and in the process, gave us the Internal Revenue Service, the most widely reviled agency in all of government.

The IRS was spawned by the need to enforce the income tax and the only way to eliminate this agency is through constitutional change.

If the IRS was just collecting taxes, that would be one thing. But we now know the IRS has engaged in a systematic campaign of intimidation against us and like-minded Americans. It’s time to Dump the IRS.

From Tea Party Patriots --

Will you join with us in calling for the repeal of the 16th Amendment?

The amendment, which went into effect in 1913, gives the federal government power to levy an income tax. Yet the Internal Revenue Service has time and time again, abused that power to harass law-abiding citizens with opposing political beliefs – including Tea Party Patriots.

It’s also clear that the federal government cannot be trusted to responsibly and efficiently spend our hard-earned tax dollars. We believe there is simply a better way for Americans to pay their taxes. We believe the tax code shouldn’t be so rife with opportunities for fraud and the IRS is an agency with too much power and a demonstrated willingness to abuse its authority. The current tax system is an antiquated model that has no place in the 21stcentury or a free society. All it does is breed corruption and waste – not to mention rampant inefficiency.

Congressman Jim Bridenstine of Oklahoma has already introduced legislation to repeal the 16th Amendment. He believes, as we do, that real tax reform won’t happen until Congress loses its constitutional authority to impose an income tax. Let’s help get Rep. Bridenstine’s bill the attention it deserves, and call for full repeal.

It’s time for a change! It’s time for Americans to have more control over their own money, but we need your help.
