    Any tax on a Right is unconstitutional......you can't tax the exercise of a Right.....

    Murdock v. Pennsylvania 319 U.S. 105 (1943)

    Held:

    - A State may not impose a charge for the enjoyment of a right granted by the Federal Constitution.

    - The flat license tax here involved restrains in advance the Constitutional liberties of press and religion, and inevitably tends to suppress their exercise

    Opinion:
    ...It is contended, however, that the fact that the license tax can suppress or control this activity is unimportant if it does not do so. But that is to disregard the nature of this tax. It is a license tax -- a flat tax imposed on the exercise of a privilege granted by the Bill of Rights. A state may not impose a charge for the enjoyment of a right granted by the Federal Constitution....

    ... The power to impose a license tax on the exercise of these freedoms is indeed as potent as the power of censorship which this Court has repeatedly struck down...

    ... It is a flat license tax levied and collected as a condition to the pursuit of activities whose enjoyment is guaranteed by the First Amendment. Accordingly, it restrains in advance those constitutional liberties of press and religion, and inevitably tends to suppress their exercise...

    We already have to pay for gun permits.

    How about we just make it a $100 bill tax per right every year for every right someone is supposedly guaranteed?

    Does that satisfy your lust for taxing rights?

    Don't want to house and feed troops? Well that's too bad you didn't pay the tax this year to exercise that right.

    Lol right?
    I can't wait until they start charging people to pray. Or have due process. Or throw you in jail for disagreeing with the govt.
    Fun times are ahead. I truly feel sorry for my son and his children. And theirs. Etc

    No secret donations, that defeats the purpose.. If you want your identity secret, don't contribute. A contribution is not a vote. One can contribute to more than one campaign, just as people, corporations, PACS, do today.

    If a non right can not be taxed what makes you think a Right can be?

    Sorry, the targeting of conservative donors to various issues is a real thing. The left targets individuals for destruction, so forcing people to out themselves is dangerous.

    The Courts ruled that citizens have a right to privacy which covers medical procedures. If you elect to avail yourself of medical services to practice that right, you pay for them. If you elect to avail yourself of gun ownership, you pay the merchant.

    The difference is that if you choose not to undergo the procedure, you will experience the pains and penalties of childbirth. If you do not buy a gun, you will experience nothing of the sort. So it’s not an apples to apples comparison.

    That is NOT the same as a GOVERNMENT TAX on the right and YOU know it.
