Still under Bondage:
In today’s present government all citizens of good character have the right to vote providing they observe the election laws of the state in which they happen to live. The colonial laws were not so lenient. No colony allowed women to vote. All of the colonies required the men voters to own property and some had laws declaring that no one could vote who did not belong to a particular church. The colony of Massachusetts Bay, for example, allowed no one to vote who did not belong to the Puritan Church.
They did not allow all the people to take part in making the laws to help run the government. Still, they were more free than the englishmen who remained in England. Now here is a big turn around today in our government which takes away the right of the people to vote on the amount and kind of tax the government may collect.
The House of Commons had the right in the English Parliament and the Representatives of the people had the same right in the colonial legislature, and also in the Bill of Rights Amendment ten states: “Anything not delegated to the Constitution nor prohibited by it, are reserved to the states respectively or to the people.” Now this has to mean it only includes the 7 Articles and 10 Amendments but in 1913 the 16th Amendment was added by the US Congress which states: “The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several states, and without regard to any census or enumeration.
” Therefore, this 16th Amendment is an unconstitutional Amendment and must be repealed. Even way back in England the Parliament kept the right of the people to vote on which taxes the people paid. Although there were harsh laws I suppose they realized they received their money from the people. “ (Our Land---Our People) 1937 American Public School Book protesting Amendment 16: The unconstitutional takeover of the 10th Amendment.
