    The IRS gets the largest slice of our bread and we get crumbs. This man is doing his best to protect our personal liberties and our freedoms from the IRS, the Federeal Reserve, and money grubbing big-government.

    this is why I like Ron Paul. If you are serious, the only way to make this work is to go all the way as he suggests.

    very much in contrast to those who shout small government but keep Medicare and Social Security. You can’t be for small government, limited powers, tax reductions and sustain these unsustainable programs.

    We need more political courage like this.

    I’m sad to see only two co-sponsors for the Liberty Amendment. It just goes to show how the minds of most politicians in both parties tend to view themselves and their jobs, “money is power, power is money; and the government can never have too much of either” [like a Corporation with themselves as executives]. Principals don’t seem to ever factor in to their equation. This is supposed to be a nation of the people, for the people, and by the people.

    I’m glad, however, to see a trend in the people towards Enlightenment about the government agenda, and with the determination to get our rights back. Thank you Ron Paul, Roscoe G. Bartlett, and Don Young for your integrity and support for the people.

    Repeal the 16th Amendment!
    End the IRS!
    End the Corporate States of America!
    … Bring back The United States of America!

    He certainly is a man of consistency. He keeps trying. And more and more people are taking notice. He seems to introduce The Liberty Amendment an average of every 2 years, but it wouldn’t hurt to bring it up again this year.

    This is Ron Paul at his best. The 16th amendment is at the very heart of what has made the federal government the out-of-control monster it has become. Kill the beast at the root of its power, which is its money supply. I like Ron Paul’s position on the 16th amendment even more than I like the Tea Party’s position in their “Contract from America” where they call for a flat tax. I say NO to the flat tax, NO to the so called “fair tax”. Let the federal government live within its constitutional confines and levy no tax except those originally provided for in that document such as tariffs.

    Our current tax system is unconstitutional even with the 16th amendment in place. How do you invent the IRS with all its databases and hundreds of thousdands of employees out of this statement?

    Amendment 16 – Status of Income Tax Clarified.
    The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration.

    The answer is, you don’t. There is no constitutional basis for the IRS and the constitutional basis for the federal government levying a tax on state citizens is tenuous at best. Still, in the interest of peaceful change, let’s drive a stake through the heart of the beast we created and repeal the 16th amendment. Good call, Ron Paul!

      see Dfens, we may not agree on everything but there are things that Ron Paul is doing that challenges the status quo.

      Yes not everything he stands for is perfect, but I support him because he’s challenging the status quo, and doesn’t keep quiet just to keep his job.

      One thing I’m not 100% behind him on is the legalisation of pot. Possibly it should be decrminialised, and yes alcohol and tobacco aren’t much better. But I am a bit concerned about the message it sends. Nevertheless on the California Report this morning they were stating since California has stopped clamping down on pot growers, the price of marjiana has dropped significantly (from $8000/lb to under $2,000/lb), which has resulted… funnily enough, in a lot of illegal pot growers who farm in national parks, going out of business.

      They even had a marjiuana activist who was complaining that the decriminalisation of weed was affecting a lot of businesses who supply weed (yeah how does that make sense? complain its illegal then complain when its not illegal). A federal agent was saying how they arrested one guy who had 800lbs of processed weed. When he asked him what he planned to do with it, the guy responded “I don’t know”, because there’s so much supply he had no one to sell it to.

      Sorry wrong forum to be talking about weed, but just saying Ron Paul has good ideas, and sometimes challenges my ideas (e.g. about legalising marjiana being a good thing).

        You may have to change your name to Neocon777?

        I do understand how difficult it is to not have “control” over your world.
        How hard it is to accept human flaws and misbehavior.
        DRUGS ARE DEADLY!!
        But people are weak willed and stupid…. And the war on drugs is lost!

        We are currently using US troops to guard the poppy fields in Afghanistan to secure this seasons crop of opium = heroin.

        We pay the Dept. of Interior DEA and ATF and others BILLIONS to protect US from US.. Mexico has turned into a Narco State run by Drug Lords in a battle zone, thousands die annually.

        Consider this… We legalize it, package to pharmacies, TAX it and pay for rehab and invention?
        Its not perfect, but it eliminates half of our prison population and eliminates billions in paying for DEA and ATF narco thugs

        Just a “Libertarian” thought…

          wow… how about READING my comment????

          “One thing I’m not 100% behind him on is the legalisation of pot. Possibly it should be decrminialised,…”

          “but just saying Ron Paul has good ideas, and sometimes challenges my ideas (e.g. about legalising marjiana being a good thing).”

          what i’m saying is my original take and ‘feel’ was it’s not a ‘good’ thing, but Ron Paul has challenged me on that train of thought…

            decriminalization is a stupid idea. it just lets all the gang members increase their business since they control all the flow. if it were fully legalized then the drug business would fall out of their hands.

            and drugs kill the stupid, the weak, the dregs of society. they’re great. we should subsidize drugs and give them away for free. see how many welfare recipients we have left then.

        Really? Our country is bankrupt, corruption and scandels in high level positions run amok, and you are worried about what? Those damn hippies looking for a recreational buzz? Oh my……

        Google: Industrial Hemp…..the more you know

        …..has little to no THC the ‘get high’ chemical in marijuana, so why is that illegal?

    I completely agree with abolishing the income tax and the IRS. IRS has owed over $5,000.00 for eight years. I sent them prrof of that. I keep getting letters telling me that IRS is “researching” my claim, Every 45 days I get another form letter telling me IRS needs another 45 days tp “research” my claim. All they have to do is draw up my 2000 Form 1040A, add upo the W-2 and the 1099 Forms and recognize that my income was $37,000.00 that year not $71,000.00 as IRS claims. I did the “research” in less than 15 minutes. But they keep sto0newalling. I can’t get through to talk to anyone. And, of course, they’re holding me responsible for piles and piles of fines and penalties. They now say I owe them $27,000.00 for $37,000.00 in income. That’s tax rate of 80% of my 2000 income!

      well isn’t it funny when we all get excited about getting a large tax refund back? When we clearly forget that that money was OURS TO BEGIN WITH!

      Clearly the IRS doesn’t have that position. Their position is everything we earn is their’s, and they’ll let us have some of it back, when it suits them.
