If you want to confirm how deeply entrenched Washington’s swamp creatures are, and how they use their positions of public trust to subvert the very provisions of our Constitution which were designed to prevent abuses of our federal government’s taxing powers, one need only look at the propaganda which is put forth by swamp creatures who are in charge at the United States Census Bureau link
“Census results help determine how billions of dollars in federal funding flow into states and communities each year.”
“The results determine how many seats in Congress each state gets.”
“It’s mandated by the U.S. Constitution in Article 1, Section 2: The U.S. has counted its population every 10 years since 1790.”
Our federal swamp creatures are quick to assert the census is used to “determine how billions of dollars in federal funding flow into states and communities each year.” What is omitted is the census was also intentionally intended to determine how much each State would be obligated to pay if any direct tax would be laid among the States, i.e., both representation and direct taxation would be determined by the rule of apportionment …. a rule which protects and shields the people of each State from the notoriously evil consequences of “democracy” in which 51 percent of the people may vote to burden the remaining population with taxation, while likewise voting to enjoy what has been taken by unequal direct taxation.
Indeed, as our swamp creatures at the Census Bureau note the census is to determine how money may flow into states from the federal government. So, let us not forget by the year 1835, America was manufacturing everything from steam powered ships, to clothing spun and woven by powered machinery and the national debt [which included part of the revolutionary war debt] was completely extinguished and Congress enjoyed a surplus in the federal treasury from tariffs, duties, and customs. And so, by an Act of Congress in June of 1836 all surplus revenue in excess of $5,000,000 was decided to be distributed among the states, and eventually a total of $28,000,000 was distributed among the states by the rule of apportionment in the nature of interest free loans to the states to be recalled if and when Congress decided to make such a recall.
So why do the Census Bureau swamp creatures not inform the public that the census is also intentionally designed to determine each State’s share of any direct tax laid by Congress?
As pointed out by Justice Roberts in the Obamacare Case, and in spite of the Sixteenth Amendment, “The shared responsibility payment is thus not a direct tax that must be apportioned among the several States.”
For an example of a federal direct tax being laid by Congress see the direct tax 1798, in which each state’s apportioned share is itemized LINK
The constitutional requirement that direct taxes “must be apportioned among the several States” [see Article 1, Section 9, Clause 4,] has not been altered since its adoption but is ignored by today’s leadership of both political parties and has resulted in a deadly poison___ un-apportioned corporate and social welfare, which has divided our nation and works to our destruction.
Keep in mind if a direct tax is laid, directly upon the people, and the rule of apportionment is enforced, it turns out to be an equal per capita tax, and prevents the Congress from forcing hard working wage earners who work extra hours to increase their economic station in life from paying a higher amount of the tax than the least productive and unmotivated in our society . . . an idea which socialists and communists fear with a passion, and why they now rail with envy against the productive in our society.
So, why has our President not removed socialists and communists from the Census Bureau who lie by omission and refuse to acknowledge the Census is also intended to determine each state’s share of any direct tax laid, which if followed today, would help to restore our constitutionally limited “Republican Form of Government”, its free enterprise/free market system, and also help end the poison of both corporate and social welfare being doled out at the federal head which is tearing our country apart?
They are not “liberals” or “progressives”. The Democrat Party Leadership is infested with notoriously evil communists and socialists who delude, lure and addict our nations needy with free government cheese.
