    Barring any geolibertarian arguments, property comes from labor. Property is the extension of one's faculties and therefore taxing labor is therefore a violation of property rights. If you own yourself, then you own the extension of your faculties, which is property.

    I really don't know how much more succinct I can be for you, especially for the retards on this board.

    Well except for the whole concept that in fact the Government can and does tax property and did so BEFORE income tax.

    Property and commerce...the Founders NEVER meant for income to be taxed. It would be and has become a weapon for politicians to control the people.

    The Constitution was AMENDED to allow Income Tax. Just as the Founders intended it be made to be Amended.

    A whole hell of a lot of property came FROM the Government via land grants from the King and then purchases or conquest by the US Government.

    I realize this, but this does not stop me from pointing out the fact that you hate property rights and the a priori truth that individuals own themselves.

    Republicans are such fascists pigs.

    Property does not come from the government, you tyrant. It comes from the individual who expels their labor.

    True...and look at who it was thatAmended it and who was POTUS at the time? None other than Socialist Wilson...

    It should be amended OUT just as prohibition was for the damage it has caused society.
