    From Beck's Friday show, which was one of his better efforts, IMO. I think Napolatono got it right though: If citizens want to take back control of an out of control federal government and make government fear the people, we must take the source of their power: money.

    That show will probably air again today. I think they aired it about 5 times yesterday.

    Then that slimy mother fucker Glen Beck shouldn't have shit on Ron Paul when he had him on as a guest on CNN. Before Beck went to Fox, and when Ron Paul was running for President, (after Ron Paul won the first few debates), Beck had him on as a guest and was rolling his faggoty eyes every time Beck spoke the truth.

    I'm sick of talking about this conversation, because it goes knowhere. Yet, it is the most important issue out there.

    YEs, we need to abolish the income tax, but also the Federal Reserve.

    Fuck the banks. Let bankers own the banks. But NOT the Federal Reserve.

    This is the root of where/how they own us.

    So Nobama, this is an issue that you right wingers and us left wingers can agree on. Now lets see if we can wake up the rest of America.

    And I really wish Glen Beck didn't fuck Ron Paul in the ass like he did. I get the feeling that Beck is full of shit. He'll bitch about the income tax, but he won't go as far as to endorse breaking up the Federal Reserve. If he changes, then that'll show me that he is a sellout who is willing to say anthing just to get him some attention. Beck is an attention whore. And he's a flip flop sellout like McCain.

    Ultimately, he won't back our cause. But I am glad to see you have arrived. Welcome.

    Now why do you think it is okay to abolish some amendments, yet not others?

    I am not for abolishing the ability of the government to collect income taxes... we're not going to be able to fund our government on just tariffs, etc

    But I am ALL for laws that change and simplify HOW taxes are collected.. ensuring a completely equal % burden on all tax collection.... taking the tax code to be centered around equal treatment and making it so that we do not need such a huge sized government agency that is responsible for tax collection

    That's kind of a stupid question. Each amendment is different. Maybe you agree with one but disagree with another. Good examples are prohibition and slavery. If we abolish the income tax, what does that have to do with those other two amendments?

    Anyways, please don't ask stupid questions that get us off topic. The goal is to abolish the income tax. Are you for or against and why?

    Don't just ask a dumb fuck question like you did. Totally distracting. Its why politics are annoying. Stop asking 3rd grade questions. :eusa_shhh:

    I can't believe sealybobo is arguing for abolishing the income tax. How would Obama fund all these pet projects, which you argue were necessary?

    I am against abolishing the income tax. Simplifying it is another story. We have to have a way to fund our government, but not to the extent so that the government can control every aspect of our lives.

    You need to watch Freedom to Fascism. In the beginning they list all the taxes we pay. School, gas, luxury, death sales, property, city, etc. The list was HUGE!!!

    The income tax doesn't go towards anything specific. This is how they like it. If it is a direct tax, we can monitor it. We can see how much we pay in, and how much is spent, how much is wasted, etc. If we need more for schools, then we raise the school tax.

    But the income tax doesn't go to anything specific. Oh they'll show that pie chart and say that 1/5th goes to defense, 1/3 goes to budget, blablabla, but they are lying. All our income taxes collectively go towards is paying down interest on the national debt. I wish you could see the movie because it explains it better. Our income taxes do not go directly to Defense. They cut the checks for defense from the budget, which also is not funded by our income tax.

    So this vague income tax and the vague federal deficit that no one seems to care is racking up interest by the millions each second, is how the bankers own/control us.

    U.S. National Debt: 10.9 Trillion & Clicking

    How anyone can watch that debt grow at that pace and not get mad is beyond me.
