NATIONAL PETITION TO REPEAL THE 16TH AMENDMENT
WHEREAS, the rights of the American people are granted by our Creator and protected from government infringement by our Constitution; and
WHEREAS, the 16th Amendment, granting the federal government the power to tax the income of its own people, is a direct violation of our right not to be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law, as guaranteed by the Fifth Amendment; and
WHEREAS, the Internal Revenue Service has abused its power under the 16th Amendment to harass tea party Americans trying to exercise their First Amendment rights to the freedom of speech and assembly; and
WHEREAS, the federal government has proven itself incapable of controlling its urge to recklessly spend and waste the funds it confiscates from the fruits of its citizens' labor; and
WHEREAS, Congressman Jim Bridenstine (R-OK) has introduced a bill in the House Representatives to permanently repeal this disaster and end this oppression.
THEREFORE, I hereby demand that you immediately and completely approve HJ Res 104 without delay, thereby relieving the American people from the oppressive burden of the federal income tax and the Internal Revenue Service!
