| "Power and the law are not
synonymous. In truth they are frequently in
opposition and irreconcilable. There is God's Law
from which all equitable laws of man emerge and by which
men must live if they are not to die in oppression, chaos,
and despair. Divorced from God's eternal and
immutable Law, established before the founding of the
suns, man's power is evil no matter the noble words with
which it is employed or the motives urged when enforcing
"Men of good will, mindful therefore of the Law laid down by God, will oppose governments whose rule is by men, and, if they wish to survive as a nation they will destroy that government which attempts to adjudicate by the whim or power of venal judges." --Cicero
"Long before our own time the customs of our ancestors molded admirable men, and in turn thse eminent men upheld the ways and institutions of their forebears. Our age, however, inherited the Republic like some beautiful painting of bygone days, its colors already fading through great age; and not only has our time neglected to freshen the colors of the picture, but we have failed to preserve its form and outlines. For what remains to us nowadays, of the ancient ways on which the commonwealth, we were told, was founded? We see them so lost in oblivion that they are not merely neglected but quite forgot. . . . Our customs have perished for want of men to stand by them, and we are called to an account, so that we stand impeached like men accused of capital crimes, compelled to plead our own cause. Through our vices, rather than from fate, we retain the word 'Republic' long after we have lost the reality.""I believe there are more instances of the abridgement of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachment of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations." James Madison
Marcus Tullius Cicero, from De Republica
"Let us consider that arbitrary power has seldom, or never, been introduced into any country at once. It must be introduced by slow degrees, and, as it were, step-by-step, lest the people should see it approach. The barriers and fences of the people's liberty must be plucked one-by-one, and some plausible pretences must be found for removing or hoodwinking, one after another, those sentries who are posted by the constitution of a free country for warning the people of their danger. When these preparatory steps are once made, the people may then indeed, with regret, see slavery and arbitrary power making long strides over their land; but it will be too late to think of preventing or avoiding the impending ruin."
Philip Dormer Stanhope, Fourth Earl of Chesterfield, 1779.

The book that explains the fraud underlying the Federal income tax and why most Citizens of the several States are not liable for it. Few Americans realize that Congress can lay and collect taxes pursuant to a constitutional authority besides Article I § 8(1). The Federal income tax is not an Article I § 8(1) tax. Every American needs to understand the material in this book.
Why the Citizens of the Several States Are Not Generally Liable for the Federal Income Tax
Several writers on the income tax who are at present marketing their books maintain that the income tax is an excise tax. The constitution requires that excise taxes pursuant to Article I § 8(1) be uniform. The federal income tax was not uniform when it was enacted in 1913 continuing up through the beginning of WWII. My book points this out, which shows the glaring error in these writers' excise tax presumption. They are clearly in error.

Federal Income Tax: Pursuant to Article 4 § 3(2)
All collectors of internal revenue were fired in 1952. All customs officers were fired in 1965. These officers of the United States were appointed to offices created by Congress pursuant to Congress' constitutional authority at Article I § 8(18). How were they fired and yet the Government continues to collect internal revenue taxes and customs taxes? The taxes collected
are not now being laid & collected pursuant to Article 1 § 8(1).

"Our government is
the potent, the omnipresent teacher. For good or ill, it
teaches the whole people by its example. Crime is
contagious. If the government becomes a lawbreaker, it
breeds contempt for the law; it invites every man to
become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy. To declare
that in the administration of the criminal law the end
justifies the means...would bring terrible retribution.
Against that pernicious doctrine this Court should
resolutely set its face.” [Justice Brandeis, Olmstead v.
United States, 277 U.S. 438, 485. (1928)]"
"As nightfall does not come at once, neither does oppression. In both instances, there is a twilight when everything remains seemingly unchanged. And it is in such twilight that we all must be most aware of change in the air -- however slight -- lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness." Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas.
"The liberties of our country, the freedom of our civil constitution, are worth defending at all hazards; and it is our duty to defend them against all attacks. We have received them as a fair inheritance from our worthy ancestors: they purchased them for us with toil and danger and expense of treasure and blood, and transmitted them to us with care and diligence. It will bring an everlasting mark of infamy on the present generation, enlightened as it is, if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle, or be cheated out of them by the artifices of false and designing men." --Samuel Adams, 1771.
