    This is a page from a professor of law at George Washington University. It debunks the claims in the movie America: Freedom to Fascism.

    Thanks Toro.

    I wonder if Russo has put his claim to the test and not paid his income taxes? He could then explain his views of the law in a federal criminal trial. Maybe the judge would knock a couple points off his sentencing guidelines.

    Interesting read. I've never seen Freedom to Fascism and have no desire to, but I have tried to explain to others that whether we like it or not, and I don't, the 16th amendment does make the income tax perfectly legal.

    Tax is legal and necessary in a system of the state, it needs money to set up administration and in turn pay for the services, and so forth it is meant to provide.

    Wake up! Yes taxes are necessary. So fucking what? The income tax is neither necessary or constitutional.

    Watch Freedom to Fascism.

    Anyone who hasn't has nothing to say. They are under informed.

    I could be misinformed, but they are under informed.

    Right. And we have a professor of law who addresses point by point where Freedom to Fascism is wrong.

    It seems that this whole topic is an extreme example of a very large tendancy for wingnuts to blatantly ignore reality. They believe what they want to believe, in defiance of reality. They seem to make up a fantasy world, craftily invent lies to support it, and then propagate these lies as much a possible.

    It's a kind of sickness, but it's worse than a sickness, because it is all of us that pay the price when these lies dictate policy.

    At the bottom of it all, I'd guess, are some rather ingenious thieves. They take advantage of the ignorance of these wingnuts and their tendancy to live in this fantasy world. The whole scam creates an environment for massive thievery.

    The U.S.A. is all but destroyed because of the policies that are a direct product of these lies.

    When are the rest of us going to wake up and recognise this scam for what it is:

    TREASON!!!!!

    No policies have been a product of any of the arguments of Freedom to Fascism. The income tax and 16th amendment remain in effect, and the Federal Reserve has not been abolished and only now is there a bill in Congress that would add any more transparency to the organization.
