The famous golfer Phil Mickelson was forced to apologize for saying he would have to make “drastic changes” due to new U.S. and California tax laws. The 42-year-old golf champion said the comments should have remained private. He has been assailed as sponsors are intimidated by the government. God help us if we really ever had free speech in this country. Jefferson said God created us all equal in the Declaration of Independence. What happened to those ideals?
To set the record STRAIGHT, it is has been the Judiciary and NOT the people that has (1) claimed that it is constitutional to charge people income taxes on a proportional basis endorsing Karl Marx’s theories of communism, (2) applied income taxes to worldwide income when Congress did not expressly do so, and (3) broadly defined income as anything you get not requiring actual labor. I would like to see a store charge white people one price, Spanish-Speaking a different price, and different prices to Asians and Blacks based upon someone else’s theories and let the Supreme Court say that is constitutional. Would the Supreme Court say the equal protection of the law clause does not apply? What is the difference between if one person pays 60% in taxes and another nothing from creating different prices in a store based upon race, religion, the way you are dressed, or upon the color of your hair?
There can be no justice for all, equal protection, or anything of the sort as long as you discriminate based upon ANY criteria including class. This is why judges can NEVER be picked by government. No one who has EVER worked for government should be allowed to be a judge. Ben Franklin argued lawyers should nominal judges for they will nominate the best to eliminate competition. Without a HONEST independent Judiciary, there can never be any rule of law because judges will rationalize whatever government desires to do at that moment in time as they have done with taxation.
