Covers all the bases. Taxation is theft. The income tax is extortion. Of the many books I've read on the government's crime of taxation, this is one of the two or three best. The only one I rank before it is Irwin Schiff's, The Great Income Tax Hoax: Why You Can Immediately Stop Paying This Illegally Enforced Tax

The ink had hardly dried on the Constitution when in 1794 Congress passed the so-called Carriage Tax act and President Washington allowed it to become law. In levying the tax, Congress ignored one of the very few constitutional limitations on the government's power to tax: a requirement that direct taxes be "apportioned." Two years later the Supreme Court, in the case, HYLTON VS. U.S., agreed with Congress and unanimously held that this patently unconstitutional tax was constitutional. The HYLTON decision paved the way for the first income tax sixty-five years later at the outset of the Civil War, and it has been all downhill for taxpayers ever since. Richman does a marvelous job in describing the enormous changes in the size of the American government, the concomitant loss of individual liberty and the devastating impact of the income tax on the economy and on the self-reliance of individual Americans. Read this book and weep for America. And read Richman's recent book, AMERICA'S COUNTER REVOLUTION: THE CONSTITUTION REVISITED, to learn how the taxaholic Federalists like Hamilton and Madison outmaneuvered and outfoxed their Anti-Federalist opponents to get the Constitution ratified, thereby creating the mechanism by which the Leviathan state would flourish with virtually no constraint whatsoever on the federal government's power to tax and spend your money.

This book is one of the best written on the subject of abolishing the income tax.
As Americans, we have been taught that paying our fair share of income taxes is the American way and our patriotic duty. Nothing could be farther from the truth. In fact, the income tax is 100% against the American way and violates our very own Constitution.
This book exposes the complete history of the income tax, and its tyrannical, Gestapo like collection agency, the IRS. The IRS is the most feared organization American has ever known and they operate outside the bounds of the Constitution that is supposed to protect us from tyranny in government. What happened? Read this book to find out all of the sordid details.
Not only is this book a history lesson, but more importantly, it shows that we can survive without the income tax as we did for more than one hundred and fifty years before this form of communism was implemented into our lives.
If every American read this book, there would be a revolution by tomorrow morning.

The IRS is a lot more powerful than you think. If you want to be shocked, buy this book.
