On Tax Day, taxes are in the news.

Today, there were several articles in the Review Journal and the Sun about taxes. Here is a list.
Tax code makes America a warring, two-class society.(yesterday)
State income tax doesn't deserve a debate.
Make taxes smaller and simpler, period.
Simplifying U.S. tax code makes abundant sense.
We should praise the IRS, not vilify it.
Why there's no need to pity the wealthy on tax day.

We have been brainwashes into accepting taxes as a necessary evil. However, taxes take away our freedom and liberty. How can one be free if they have to give the government part of what they earn? How can one be free if their homes can be taken from them if they do not pay their property taxes?

Alexander Hamilton said:
In the general course of human nature, a power over a man's subsistence amounts to a power over his will.

In the main it will be found that a power over the man's support is a power over his will.

Taxes are not a necessary evil, they are just evil. They deprive us of our freedom, liberty, and property. In his book, 'The Law'. Frederic Bastiat says that,
Life, liberty, property do not exist because men have made laws. On the contrary, it was the fact that life, liberty, and property existed beforehand that cause men to make laws in the first place.

The Constitution is the law of our land and it has been gradually overlooked by our legislature who took an oath to uphold it.
