The Simple Solution to Fix America's Economic Problems

Before I disclose the solution of how to fix America, I must give you some background history to validate the solution. America’s economic problems started on February 3, 1913 with the ratification of the 16th amendment (the income tax amendment) signed into law by President Woodrow Wilson then compounded by the Federal Reserve Act, signed into law on December 23, 1913. The first income tax imposed in America was during the War of 1812. Its original purpose was to fund the repayment of a $100 million debt that was incurred through war-related expenses. In 1817 the tax was repealed.

Most Americans are under the delusion that income taxes supports government and services provided to us. If that were true, how was government supported from 1776 to 1913 before the 16th amendment? Simple, the United States government was supported by internal taxes on distilled spirits, carriages, refined sugar, tobacco and snuff, property sold at auction, corporate bonds, tariffs, and slaves.

The only reason the 16th amendment was enacted was to support the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 which was passed, as sold to the people was to end banking anarchy and control inflation. As we all know… it didn’t happen! We must ask the question why? That’s another simple answer. It was to enrich the already wealthy bankers. In 1982 President Ronald Reagan authorized the Grace Commission to examine (among other things) where income tax dollars go. His commission concluded that “100 percent of what is collected is absorbed solely by interest on the federal debt and all individual income tax revenues are gone before one nickel is spent on the services taxpayers expect from their government.” That means that one hundred percent of your tax dollars go directly from you to the Federal Reserve Corporation…a private for-profit bank that is State and Federal tax exempt!
This was how it was done in 1773 during the Boston tea party. The Crown (of England) attempted to impose several taxes on the colonist, they rebelled and England eliminated all those taxes except for a reduced tax on tea. England’s logic was if the colonist agreed to pay a tax, even a reduced tax on tea, then the colonist would be recognizing the Crown’s authority to tax them. The colonist saw through that ploy and dumped the tea into the harbor.

Today the IRS demands that every person sign and file a 1040 form (under penalty of law) to pay an income tax.

In IRS jury trials the jury, by law, must decide if the law is just. If taxpayers (and juries) do not believe the law is fair, the jury may declare the accused innocent (by jury nullification) which means that the jury has the legal right and legal authority to acquit the accused even though the evidence proves otherwise. Judges are legally bound to inform juries of their right to determine the fairness of a law and to vote not guilty. So perhaps Americans should try to nullify the Federal Reserve and the IRS by joining together and filing a giant lawsuit against them.

1980, Alan Scheflin and Jon Van Dyke: “The arguments for opposing the nullification instruction are, in our view, deficient because they fail to weigh the political advantages gained by not lying to the jury. What impact will this deception have on jurors who felt coerced into their verdict by the judge’s instructions and who learn, after trial, that they could have voted their consciences and acquitted? Such a juror is less apt to respect the legal system.”

1980, U.S. v. Wilson: “In criminal cases, a jury is entitled to acquit the defendant because the jury has no sympathy for the government’s position.” This was how the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850 was repealed and how the 18th amendment of 1920 was repealed. Let’s repeal the 16th amendment and the Federal Reserve Act using the same methods.

    Juries have never had the right to determine the fairness of a law. Jury nullification exists not because it’s a valid doctrine but because once a jury’s verdict is rendered it can’t be reversed, even if the verdict is later proved to be corrupt.

    Also, amendments to the Constitution are not “signed into law” by the president. You should try to get basic facts straight before you write an article.

    Then again, if everything that’s factually incorrect were removed from this article, there’d be no article left.

    Ever since the John Peter Zenger case of 1735, juries have ALWAYS had the right to nullification. In a 1952 decision of (Morissette v United States), the U. S. Supreme Court recognized the powers of juries to engage in nullification. The court stated: “Had the jury convicted on proper instructions of the Judge it would be the end of the matter. But juries are not bound by what seems inescapable logic to judges.”

    1969, 4TH CIRCUIT COURT OF APPEALS (United States v. Moylan): “If the jury feels the law is unjust, we recognize the undisputed power of the jury to acquit, even if its verdict is contrary to the law as given by a judge and contrary to the evidence. If the jury feels that the law under which the defendant is accused is unjust, or that exigent circumstances justified the actions of the accused, or for any reason which appeals to their logic or passion, the jury has the power and legal authority to acquit that person and the courts must abide by that decision.”
    I just cited two Supreme Court cases…do your research, Cal. Guilty verdicts CAN be overturned and/or appealed. NOT guilty verdicts can NEVER be overturned, not even by the Supreme Court or anyone! And thats a fact!

    Hey Cal. If citizens, in their roles as jurors are incompetent to judge the worthiness of the law, how are they in their roles as voters competent to judge the worthiness of those who write the laws? I direct your attention to the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850, upheld by the Supreme Court (Dred-Scott decision) repealed in 1864 as a direct result of jury nullification…the juries determined that the law was not fair. Same as the 18th amendment. Amendments are introduced in House(Senate) ,referred to House(Senate) committee, House(Senate) debates and passes its form of amendment, House and Senate members confer,reach compromise on single bill,and either House and Senate approve compromise,or President signs amendment into law. FACTS SET STRIGHT!
