  1. Did you know that the income tax was pushed through by promising the voters that even though it was a blatant violation of the Constitution, it was OK because it would be a tax “only on the rich?” Slowly but surely it flowed downhill, like the flowing blood of greed and corruption, until it was applied to us all.
