    Amerie,

    You obviously need to do more homework to know what is really going on in the US. The 16th Amendment was never ratified by the required two-thirds of the states. Secretary Knox ignored the requirements (exact wording, spelling, and nothing added by all states) of the U.S. Constitution. Secretary of State Knox put it through by resolution. Wrong. They have used this a precedent just like the courts.

    It’s time all citizen’s get themselves educated.

    Wow. Anyone who thinks government can do things better than the private sector needs to come work here for a while. One thing that would make it massively better would be to repeal the parts of the merit systems protections that serve to allow the mediocre employees to continue to be mediocre. Supervisors need to be able to fire more quickly without having to document things for a year or more. If there’s waste in government contracting, that’s what oversight is for.

    Ameire, your economic ignorance is outdone only by your mindset of a theif. Americans tend to fall into two classifications; producers and parasites. You clearly fall in the latter group. Confiscating 90% of what successful producers have earned will lead to two certain outcomes: Those who have been successful will move to less larcenous countries and those with the desire and ability to be productive and successful will move as well. And if bloodsuckers like you do manage to defund the military, eventually your socialist utopia will be invaded and overrun by parasites with guns and you will be their slaves.
