Default Is a Federal Income Tax Unconstitutional?

I watched a few videos about this... And here is a news article about it.

http://www.wmur.com/specialreports/13523407/detail.html

Also Aaron Russo has a movie out that shows a man defeating the IRS in court on the basis of the fact that there is no law.It's called Freedom to Fascism.

Unconstitutional as in its not explicitly stated in the constitution. When the constitution was written though it was a different time (obviously) where people were concerned more with state's rights among other factors barring its inclusion.

Without a federal tax, America, as currently configured, would fail tremendously. Some would argue that the private sector could do what the government does, but it would take an overhaul of the most gigantic proportions.

Interesting...I'll have to look into this.

What's unconstitutional is the fact that you have to be either filthy rich or dirt poor and lazy for this government to work in your favor.

The middle class makes this country turn and they get ****ted on.

the middle class is a bunch a fast food eating, video game playing, beer drinking, spoiled consumers.....screw them.(and I am a member)

"most" rich people worked hard to get where they are....that is the American dream. (don't bring up Paris Hilton)

"most" poor people are there because they were born into it.

Any single adult with an ounce of ambition and command of the English language should easily escape poverty in no more than 5 years in the USA.
