Read your link Roy, your too kind. It sure sounded illegal to me. Several states did not ratify the amendment as a income tax and it had nothing to do with the amendment but were counted anyhow in the approval column. I would have to say that this amendment is illegal and should never have been incorporated into the Constitution. But with a left wing Supreme Court they would never rule against it any more than they would they would against the 14th Amendment.

My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them. It is not to inaugurate new programs, but to cancel old ones that do violence to the Constitution."
