James Madison Quote

“The apportionment of taxes on the various descriptions of property is an act which seems to require the most exact impartiality; yet there is, perhaps, no legislative act in which greater opportunity and temptation are given to a predominant party to trample on the rules of justice. Every shilling which they overburden the inferior number is a shilling saved to their own pockets.”

Close, but a miss... tax collectors no longer work for a "political party". They work for International Bankers and are on par with any gangster like extortion scheme but operate with impunity. Without a doubt they are arrogant thieves and part of the cancer that is the Federal Reserve.

Theft is legal when the tax collectors do it.

This combined with Emergency War Powers makes for absolute despotism.

Where or what is the lawful nexus that would allow ownership in another's property that would permit a taxing thereof??? How is it that a slave master lays claim to chattel (sheeple, borg, etc.) and the fruits of their labor by way of taxation. Where is perfected allodium that a distant  disinterested third party does not recognize?
