    There is actually little to nothing the government is doing that is authorized in the US constitution. Art 1 Sec 8 (powers of Congress) is very small and very limited. From there we go to the 10th amendment.

    You "income tax" violates more clauses in the doc than most people can even list.

    Social Security, Medicare,Education,Arms ......none of it even mentioned as a granted power. (Art 1 sec 1)

    Unfortunately, by now, LIARS like Wage salve have read so much into the Constitution, that the original framers are rolling in their graves.

    Income taxes were not allowed until 1908 and people like Wage Slave argue that they have a right to steal my money to pay off THEIR debts. NOT the government debts, THEIR DEBTS!!!

    And to SOO LIE and pretend like the government was talking about Wage slave's debts for getting a degree in dance theory, and not the GOVERNMENT'S debts.... PURELY LIES. It is truly disgusting.

    Wage Slave, You think I am being unreasonable here???? Explain to me why I can't buy a YACHT on credit and have the taxpayer pay for it. By your reading, not only should I be able to do this, but the government should be obligated to pay my debt as a matter of course.

    You're also paying for elementary, junior high and high school even if it's a private school. Private schools still receive some state funding, which they get from taxes.

    16th amendment covers taxes.

    "Do strangers have a right to force me to pay for <pick anything supported by taxes>? Where is that in the constitution?"

    It's in the 16th amendment. The federal government may collect taxes and pass bills to appropriate tax money. A good chunk of that money is used for the military. Taxes also are used to maintain the national highway system. Federal money is also passed on to local school districts to assist in primary education.

    In the end, people with college or trade school education after high school earn more money and pay more taxes than people that don't have that education. Education is a good investment for the US.

    My tax payments pay for roads I will never drive on. Should I get a tax cut?

    It's not in the Constitution, but when you have Socialist trying to run the country they will try to have ordinary people pay for others.
