@Riceday - the 16th amendment (along with the 17th) needs to be repealed, but even the original constitution said the federal government could tax if it apportioned it. Also they could do tariffs (across international borders).|
For a government to exist it must have the ability to raise revenues, and you can play semantic and other games, bit it means it has the authority to tax. The scope and manner of taxation are the topic of discussion.
