The authority of the federal government to collect its income tax depends upon the 16th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, the federal income tax amendment, which was allegedly ratified in 1913. After a year of extensive research, Bill Benson discovered that the 16th Amendment was not ratified by the required 3/4 of the states, but nevertheless Secretary of State Philander Knox fraudulently announced ratification.
Now remember that the people telling you that Benson is wrong and the 16th Amendment was ratified are the same people who told you Saddam had nuclear weapons.
Because of the Iraq nuke deception, we KNOW that the US Government lies to the people. Is it really so absurd to imagine that they lied to open a permanent door into your wallet?
