It really is irritating to hear Fox News personalities constantly complaining about federal taxation, 87,000 new IRS Agents, and out-of-control deficit spending without offering a solution.

One solution which appears in the Congressional Record [1995-6 Hearings on “REPLACING THE FEDERAL INCOME TAX”] is The Fair Share Balanced Budget Amendment. The following is its wording with editorial explanations.

The Fair Share Balanced Budget Amendment

“SECTION 1. The Sixteenth Amendment is hereby repealed, and Congress is henceforth forbidden to lay any tax or burden calculated from profits, gains, sales, interest, salaries, wages, tips, inheritances or any other lawfully realized money.

NOTE: these words would return us to our founding father’s original tax plan as they intended it to operate! They would also end the experiment with allowing Congress to lay and collect taxes calculated from lawfully earned “incomes” which now oppresses America‘s economic engine and robs the bread which working people have earned when selling the property each has in their own labor, not to mention they would end federal taxation being used as a political weapon to harass and attack political opponents!

“SECTION 2. Congress ought not raise money by borrowing, but when the money arising from imposts duties and excise taxes are insufficient to meet the public exigencies, and Congress has raised money by borrowing during the course of a fiscal year, Congress shall then lay a direct tax at the beginning of the next fiscal year for an amount sufficient to extinguish the preceding fiscal year’s deficit, and apply the revenue so raised to extinguishing said deficit.”

NOTE: Congress is to raise its primary revenue from imposts and duties, [taxes at our water’s edge], and may also lay miscellaneous internal excise taxes on specifically chosen articles of consumption. But if Congress borrows and spends more than is brought in from imposts, duties and miscellaneous excise taxes during the course of a fiscal year, then, and only then, is the direct apportioned tax to be laid in order to balance the budget on an annual basis.

“SECTION 3. When Congress is required to lay a direct tax in accordance with Section 1 of this Article, the Secretary of the United States Treasury shall, in a timely manner, calculate each State’s apportioned share of the total sum being raised by dividing its total population size by the total population of the united states and multiplying that figure by the total being raised by Congress, and then provide the various State Congressional Delegations with a Bill notifying their State’s Executive and Legislature of its share of the total tax being collected and a final date by which said tax shall be paid into the United States Treasury.”

In reference to the above Section see: FIRST DIRECT TAX LAID BY CONGRESS, 1798

NOTE: our founder’s fair share formula to extinguish an annual deficit would be:

States’ population
---------------------------- X SUM TO BE RAISED = STATE’S FAIR SHARE
Total U.S. Population

The above formula, as intended by our founding fathers, is to ensure that each state’s share towards extinguishing an annual deficit is proportionately equal to its representation in Congress, i.e., representation with a proportional financial obligation! And if the tax is laid directly upon the people by Congress, then everybody taxpayer across the United States pays the exact same amount!

Note also that each State’s number or Representatives, under our Constitution is determined by the rule of apportionment:

State`s Pop.

------------------- X House size (435) = State`s No. of Representatives
U.S. Pop.

“SECTION 4. Each State shall be free to assume and pay its quota of the direct tax into the United States Treasury by a final date set by Congress, but if any State shall refuse or neglect to pay its quota, then Congress shall send forth its officers to assess and levy such State’s proportion against the real property within the State with interest thereon at the rate of ((?)) per cent per annum, and against the individual owners of the taxable property. Provision shall be made for a 15% discount for those States paying their share by ((?))of the fiscal year in which the tax is laid, and a 10% discount for States paying by the final date set by Congress, such discount being to defray the States’ cost of collection.”

NOTE: This section respects the Tenth Amendment and allows each state to raise its share in its own chosen way in a time period set by Congress, but also allows the federal government to enter a state and collect the tax if a state is delinquent in meeting its obligation.

"SECTION 5. This Amendment to the Constitution, when ratified by the required number of States, shall take effect no later than (?) years after the required number of States have ratified it.

Fox is the face of the Republican Establishment.
Their solution is to promote Unfettered Capitalism.
We see where that got us.

To any human beings who happen upon the op's insanity, as I have done, we can only marvel, the op literally thinks they are on the team, that the new "willing to kill" IRS army is a good thing, and we should shut up about them and our money. He is absolutely clueless what was just created, and why, the moron also obviously wears a mask to bed and likely has had at least four jabs of the killer juice, they think they are on the team, they think totalitarianism is the bees knees, its just appalling how fucking stupid and vindictive the op, and most other fascist democrat street trash really are, they think they are on the team, they will be ratting out their neighbors to the Marxists for extra drugs, or social credits, the op is less than human! :banana:

Then I suggest you don't watch.

And, unlike the ideologues at other network news companies, perhaps they realize that it's the job of a news person not to run the country, but to oversee those who do.

Yes, within a century and a half we rocketed past countries with economies hundreds of years old and left them in the dust.

We didn't rocket past them via unfettered capitalism, we rocketed past them by regulated capitalism by creating a middle class that GW's unfettered capitalism almost destroyed.

you do know under the original intent of the constitution the states had the most power??
It doesn't matter what the intent was at this point.

It only matters what the structure is now. Since that point in time, there have been many amendments, SCOTUS rulings, and new administrative agencies, that have all shifted power to the Federal Government.

Indeed, the civil war itself, has put the sword to the very idea that states shall have political autonomy.

They need the guns because they are going to be seizing land from property owners. Most especially farmers, and ranchers who own large tracts of land. No other reason to raise a veritable army...
