A – FEDERAL Income TAX IN US IS ILLEGAL
Article 1 (One) of the US CONSTITUTION describes the Powers of Congress, the Legislative Branch of the Federal government.
The Article provides that Congress consists of a House of Representatives and the Senate, establishes the manner of election and Qualifications of members of each House, and outlines legislative procedure and enumerates the powers vested in the LEGISLATIVE branch. Finally, it establishes LIMITS on the powers of both CONGRESS and the STATES.
Each of the first THREE Articles of the Constitution – the MOST IMPORTANT – concern one of the 3 (three) branches of the federal government.
i) The LEGISLATIVE Branch is established under Article 1 (One),
ii) the EXECUTIVE Branch – the PRESIDENT – under Article 2 (Two), and
iii) the JUDICIAL Branch under Article 3 (Three).
Amendments to certain provisions of Article 1 (One), unlike amendments to other articles, are explicitly RESTRICTED by the US Constitution (these restrictions are imposed by Article Five). For example, NO amendment made prior to 1808 could affect the first and fourth clauses of Section Nine. The first clause prevented Congress from prohibiting the slave trade until 1808; the 4th (Fourth) barred any DIRECT Taxes that were not APPORTIONED among the States – according to population. [This makes FEDERAL TAXATION Constitutionally UNLAWFUL!] Yet very, very few US Citizens are aware of this LEGAL FACT! IF you want to challenge your IRS Return – the IRS are powerless IN LAW – if – and only – if you are prepared to pursue the matter!
Section 1: Legislative power vested in Congress
The “Vesting Clause” grants all the federal government’s legislative authority to Congress. Other vesting clauses are found in Articles II and III as well, and differ regarding the branch of government concerned; Article II’s vesting clause vests the President with “the executive power” and Article III’s vesting clause vests “the judicial power” in the federal judiciary. The Vesting Clauses thus establish the principle of separation of powers by specifically giving to each branch of the federal government only those powers it can exercise and NO OTHERS! This means that NO Branch may exercise powers that properly belong to another (e.g., since the legislative power is vested in Congress, the Executive and Judiciary may NOT enact laws).
