No State shall ....make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts;
Article I, section 10 of the United States Constitution. It is obvious that the meaning of this is that the government must back the currency we use with Gold and Silver. And you people seem to trust that the same government that is blatantly violating this provision of our Constitution is tellin the truth when they say that the individual income tax is a power they have. The truth is that in 1896 the Supreme Court ruled the income tax unconstitutional because it was not "apportioned." In 1909 the Congressmen who wanted to tax our livelyhood secretly waited until the recess then got together and passed what became the 16th Amendment. In 1913, Secretary of State, Philander Knox, declared it ratified when it wasn't. A man named Bill Benson went to Washington to review the ratification of the amendment. When he found an incomplete record he went to the 48 state capitals to review the ratification. He documented the proof that he found. The 16th amendment was never ratiied. It is well known by people who look for the truth that Congress, and the President have been lying to us for the past hundred years and the federal judiciary is in on the fraud. Bill Benson tried to get his proof in front of the courts but they ruled it "irrelevant." The Supreme Court refuses to review his proof. If you went to the first link that I provided in post #39 and did a little reading you'd see what I've seen. I won't get into the fraud that the government is perpetrating against us but what I find beautiful about the fraud is that Kentucky is listed by the government as one of the states that ratified the 16th Amendment. What follows is the vote of the Kentucky State Senate on the adoption of the 16th Amendment, copied right out of the Kentucky Journal of the Senate for February 10, 1910. 9 for and 22 against ratfying the 16th Amendment. Does the federal government lie to us? You bet they do!

If you doubt this, I suggest that you go to Frankfort Kentucky and review the "Kentucky Journal of the Senate" for yourself.
If you trust the hypocrite tyrants that now control the fedeal government, you are an ignorant fool!
