The Government wants your guns, not to protect you, but to protect themselves from you


DailyPaul: After thinking about it for some time, I have decided to share my true story with you, in the hope that maybe even a few can be convinced of the absolute tyrannical state of our government and the absolute necessity of fighting to keep our 2nd Amendment rights at all costs.

What I am about to tell you is the truth. I am not twisting the facts in any way or changing any names to protect the innocent (whoever they may be).

In 1999, I ran a successful business with my father and brother. My dad came across some information that literally shattered my beliefs about the rule of law in this country and literally changed my life forever. He came across a man named Irwin Schiff (yes, Peter Schiff’s dad...who is now in federal prison because he was not allowed to bring up the law in his defense) who had written a book (The Federal Mafia...which is now much for the 1st Amendment) unequivocally stating that the Income Tax, as it was being imposed was a fraud. He asserted that the 16th Amendment did NOT give the federal government the authority to directly tax a person’s wages and that because of this, the term “income” as used in the 16th Amendment was not defined in the Internal Revenue Code, nor was there any liability section ever created for Income Taxes in the IRC stating who exactly is required to pay the tax (as there is for EVERY other tax in the IRC). I was literally shocked by this information, as was my dad. If it was true, the federal government was getting away with one of the greatest hoaxes in American history. How could this be true in America...the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave?

For the next year I studied, and I studied and read court cases and statutes and regulations trying to get to the bottom of it, and ultimately I came to the conclusion that Irwin Schiff was correct. There is no law requiring anybody to pay the income tax (no liability section) and income as used in the 16th Amendment has a very different legal definition than what the American people had been led to believe. I cried...I literally did, at the discovery that the American people had literally been enslaved, and most did not even realize it, me included!! If they can lay claim to 30% of your hard earned money...why not 40%?...why not 50%?...why not all of it? How can any person ever define themselves as being free, while another can lay claim to the fruits of their labor? The plain truth is, they can not.
