Join the real world Richard. Only a small percentage of taxes are going to
these items (<15%). I take it then you support a tax reduction and
elimination of the other 85%. I'm glad to see you agree that taxation in the
US is 'confiscatory.' As far as the 16th is concerned that is not the only
way to get money for the items you support but does provide an abuse rich
environment as we have seen over the last 50 years. One has to be very niave
to think the ravages left in the wake of the 16th are sensible.
