Public Outrage at the 16th Amendment.

by Harvey

The information about the creation of taxes is most revealing about the conception of "government mandate taxes". I do question the 16th Amendment, the reason for it. I write this brief response to Minuteman only because I wonder about the public's response. How accepted was this amendment? Did the people rise in protest, as we do today, when anyone even breathes the dreaded "tax increase" phrase? The Colonists' historical response with the Sugar Act and the Stamp Act was obviously one of outrage. Was that also the aftershock once the 16th Amendment was passed?. I think most reasonable people are in agreement with the "occasional" tax as being necessary and at times appropriate . . . but surely the fur was flying from those opposed to the 16th Amendment. Love to hear from someone who knows about this.
