Found this gem, to my great surprise in the university library-it gave articulation to everything brooding in me that I felt to be wrong with the idea and execution of the income tax. Radical doesn't begin to describe this. Get it from the Mises Institute (mises.org) and help fund the continued printing and study of works like these.

First off, this is an absolutely fantastic book. Short and concise, this book is a powerful tool in shaping your mind to get your liberty back that we all deserve. This book is not for the liberal or progressive but it's a great lesson in history of tyranny. I especially loved the first half of the book with it's wisdom in politics and what makes politicians tick. It even brings up Social Security and it's long term prospects... not good. In summary, this book could have been written today and it's never been more important to read than right now.

I was very pleased about most of the content of this book. It reveals the turning point in American history where we went from a relatively free and open market and society to a centrally controlled, progressive, socialistic economy. My only disappointment was the complete avoidance of discussion of the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, which in my opinion was the major reason for preparing the way with the Income Tax just months before. Without the Income Tax, the Federal Reserve does not have the guarantees it needs to underwrite US, Federal Government Debt. And, without the ability to monetize it's debt the two parties do not have the liquidity to wage world wars, rebuild countries after the ravages of war, buy alliances worldwide through guaranteed loans, and expand Federal Government programs beyond the current savings/capital of the American people. It's a very clever and well hidden process to most Americans today, and virtually none of them realize the slow and steady process that's been at work for 100 years now to fundamentally "change" our free market system with small government to that of a progressive, socialistic system of control. It all started with the Income Tax and the Federal Reserve in 1912, 1913.

All of us are to blame for this disaster. Both major political parties have been the victims of this movement. Neither party today has the understanding of the root of the problem, and without this knowledge the solutions will only treat the symptoms. The result will be catastrophic to our country.

Easy to read and understand. The 16th amendment IS the root of many of our problems and the repeal of it will solve these problems easier and faster than any other suggestions. In fact, any other suggestion to fix our problems won't work as long as there is an income tax.

I recommend this book to every American before they vote. This is the end all be all to what is wrong with this nation. Would fix most problems with this country. But congress will not give up the power.
