The 16th Amendment and Income Taxes?

July 26, 2007

The 16th Amendment and Income Taxes?
Amendment XVI (1913)-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 of enumeration.
“…Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s.” (Matthew 22:21)

According to Attorney Thomas Cryer, “[Working] is a God-given fundamental right that is protected under the Constitution and can’t be taxed any more than exercising freedom of speech.”www.worldnetdaily.com

WorldNetDaily.com reports that, “The Internal Revenue Service has lost a lawyer’s challenge in front of a jury to prove a constitutional foundation for the nation’s income tax, and the victorious attorney now is setting his sights higher.”

Attorney, Thomas Cryer [LSU Law School, Baton Rouge, LA, J.D. 1973, Honor Graduate] has taken on the IRS and has won a precedent setting case. http://www.youtube.com/

WND said that Cryer “argued that income is not necessarily any money that comes to a person, but rather categories such as profit and interest.” The article goes on to state that Cryer asserts that, “There’s no law making the average working man liable [for income taxes], there’s no law or regulation that allows the IRS to contend that earnings are 100 percent profit received in exchange for nothing, and the right to earn a living through any lawful occupation is a constitutionally protected fundamental right, and it is exempt from taxation.”

Attorney Cryer had asked the IRS to show him the legal authority that made him liable for the income tax but the IRS did not respond.

Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s.
Mark Chapter 12 of the Bible says;
14: And when they were come, they say unto him, Master, we know that thou art true, and carest for no man: for thou regardest not the person of men, but teachest the way of God in truth: Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or not?
15: Shall we give, or shall we not give? But he, knowing their hypocrisy, said unto them, Why tempt ye me? bring me a penny, that I may see it.
16: And they brought it. And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? And they said unto him, Caesar’s.
17: And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s. And they marvelled at him. (Mark 12:14-17)

Have we as citizens of the U.S. rendered more to “Caesar” than his due?

In this writers opinion there is a major legal threshold issue also, and that is, is there truly a legally ratified Sixteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution?

“Bill Benson’s findings, published in “The Law That Never Was,” make a convincing case that the 16th amendment was not legally ratified and that Secretary of State Philander Knox was not merely in error, but committed fraud when he declared it ratified in February 1913. What follows is a summary of some of the major findings for many of the states, showing that their ratifications were not legal and should not have been counted.”

According to his Motion to Dismiss (United States v. Tommy K. Cryer No. 06-50164-01 Western District of Louisiana Shreveport Division) Cryer argues that, “It is, therefore, respectfully submitted that insofar as the government purports to apply the income tax law as imposing a tax on wages, salaries and fees personally earned, it is in conflict with Article I, § 9, cl. 4, of the Constitution, and is, as so applied, unconstitutional and not entitled to enforcement.”

In his Motion, Attorney Cryer goes on to state that, “Based upon recent cases involving claims that wages are not income there is an apparently common misconception, an erroneous understanding or belief, that the issue of whether wages, salaries and fees personally earned are “income” within the meaning of the income tax law and, particularly, “within the meaning of the Sixteenth Amendment”, has been settled. It has not. One government official contends that wages are constitutionally taxable income because the Supreme Court has not found them to be otherwise.”

The LieFreeZone Website says “THE TRUTH: The income tax law, although it is carefully written to APPEAR otherwise, does not actually tax your wages, salaries and fees that you earn yourself because the Constitution does not allow the federal government to tax those earnings.”

The Site further states that “The Sixteenth Amendment DID NOT authorize the federal government to tax your PERSONALLY earned wages, but only that part of your wages that is PROFIT, or GAIN above and beyond what you gave up in order to receive them. Can you say what part of your wages are above and beyond your personal investment in earning them?” www.gcstation.net/liefreezone/

Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s. The question is, have we as citizens of the U.S. rendered more to “Caesar” than his due?

*“Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113 (1973)[1], is a landmark judicial opinion regarding abortion in the United States. According to the U.S. Supreme Court’s Roe decision, most laws against abortion violate a constitutional right to privacy under the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. The decision overturned all state and federal laws outlawing or restricting abortion that were inconsistent with its holdings. It is one of the most controversial and politically significant cases in U.S. Supreme Court history, and its lesser-known companion case was decided at the same time: Doe v. Bolton, 410 U.S. 179 (1973).[2]

The central holding of Roe v. Wade was that abortions are permissible for any reason a woman chooses, up until the “point at which the fetus becomes ‘viable,’ that is, potentially able to live outside the mother’s womb, albeit with artificial aid. Viability is usually placed at about seven months (28 weeks) but may occur earlier, even at 24 weeks.”[3] The decision prompted national debate that continues to this day over whether terminating pregnancies should be legal (or more precisely, whether a state can choose to deem the act illegal), the role of the Supreme Court in constitutional adjudication, and the role of religious and moral views in the political sphere. Roe v. Wade reshaped national politics, dividing much of the nation into “pro-choice” and “pro-life” camps, and inspiring grassroots activism on both sides.”
