“Let’s consider those good founding principles that were abandoned in favor of the system that Americans live under today:
1. Americans were free to keep everything they earned.
No income tax returns. No IRS. No rushing to the Post Office on April 15. No withholding or payroll taxes. No threats of audits, liens, garnishments, and criminal prosecution for failure to pay income taxes. Whatever people earned or received, they kept 100 percent of it.
8. No Federal Reserve, fiat (i.e., paper) money, or monetary inflation or debasement of the currency.
The Constitution called into existence a monetary system in which gold coins and silver coins were the official money of the country. The states were expressly prohibited from making anything but gold and silver coins legal tender.”
