Benson Goes to Supreme Court for All of Us: "In this historic 16th Amendment litigation, the Government has sued Bill Benson

"Where an excess of power prevails, property of no sort is duly respected. No man is safe in his opinions, his person, his faculties, or his possessions." -- James Madison, essay in the National Gazette, March 27, 1792

Over the years, I have written about many court battles. Bill Benson's has been going on for many years and now is headed to the U.S. Supreme Court. For those not familiar with his case, it is about the First Amendment. It is about YOUR First Amendment rights. This is one of the most important First Amendment cases to go to the U.S. Supreme Court in the last 100 years. The government's arguments in this case have been so frivolous as to border on absurd. The lower courts have deliberately ignored the main issues because they don't wan to deal with this and that is why it now must go before the "high" court:

"In this historic 16th Amendment litigation, the Government has sued Bill Benson seeking an injunction prohibiting him from falsely telling people the Sixteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution was not ratified and therefore people are not required to file an income tax return. The Government contends it is entitled to an injunction because Benson is promoting an abusive tax shelter, conduct made subject to a penalty per 26 U.S.C. Section 6700."

This case isn't about tax evasion or "paying your fair share." Benson has never promoted any form of abusive tax shelters. It is about the First Amendment. It is about oppressive government deciding they can change the language of the First Amendment to suit their own totalitarian needs. It is about real men who have sacrificed their freedom (Bill Benson), good times and forget getting paid big legal fees (Becraft and Dickstein) the whole way to stand and fight for what is right. Now, we must fight with them with our support.

Landmark Case

Ill give a bump to Mr. Benson for having the tenacity, intestinal fortitude and a set of balls that would make any man at the Alamo envious.

Amicus Curiae

Contact constitutional legal advocacy groups, tell them about the case and ask them to consider filing amicus curiae briefs.

Bump for the truth.

Even if we can't trust the courts, get the issue before more people more often so they can start considering it.

The 16th Amendment was never never never ratified

Bill Benson proved in his two books "The Law That Never Was"
And you do have a right to say what you believe, 1st amendment
It also protects stupid speech!.

Well, I suppose the first amendment

Protects stupid speech.

You Are Living Proof ironman77...

Do you know anything about Benson or Beckman??? I didn't think so. These fine Patriots dug into the records of every State and found that the 16th was never ratified by a 2/3 majority. It's 2 volumes and instead of making your disparaging remarks why don't you buy a copy:

Pardon me?

Even Ron Paul has brought up, multiple times, the issue of the 16th Amendment never being legally ratified. He'd casually bring it up when speaking of the income tax being legal in a manner such as this (as a tangent):

"And, some people would even argue that the 16th amendment was never even legally passed."

That's RP's way of saying that it's illegal on that front as well, without actually saying it. It's just enough to get viewers listening to him to research it on their own.

Stupid speech--you should be ashamed of yourself. Ignorance is no excuse for you to call a learned man stupid.

So you are a mind reader ? ?

Next you will be saying he's using code words. It may be that there was some controversies when the 16th was ratified, but they were already addressed.

See http://www.quatloos.com/bill_benson_debunked.htm

Besides, when pressed RP talks about the involuntary servitude, basically the government has no right to force us to do the work required for the tax forms. He has never said it was illegal or unconstitutional. I think he said it should be. Benson is a crank

Hahaha!!!

You cited quatloos as a source...lmfao!!!!

So where are the ywrong

In what they say.

Or should we just dismiss that without consideration.

Ever read

the creature from Jeckly Island.

Ever heard of Arron Russo.

Hi Oruval

Yeah, I read the creature from Jekyll Island, and Saw Arron Russo's Movie

Russo's movie is good, but is just wrong on taxes, that's why CFL distanced itself from using that as a recruiting tool.

So You're saying that

The Income tax is Constitutional? Just want to be clear on that one.

Oh and just so you know, Ron Paul and HR1207.. yeah that is to audit the FED. I mean did you miss the book he just wrote. it's called end the fed.
You're actually standing up for an Unconstitutional slave tax..



Personal attack removed. zp, mod. This is getting old.

Real Patriots for 9/11 truth -- http://patriotsquestion911.com/

No Oruval

Just because something is constitutional does not mean it is the right thing to do.

Do you remember reading about slavery in the early 1800's, it was in the constitution. Slavery was actually constitutional at one time.

So no, I do not support an income tax. I would like to see it abolished. There may be constitutional issues with the income tax.

But - I don't agree with Bill Benson's assertion that the 16th amendment was not ratified. I think he is a crank, and/or a bit of an attention whore.

So can you please stop putting words in my mouth, and try to construct some kind of reasonable argument instead of blustering on about off topic gobledygook.

So ending the FED

is off topic Gobledygook.

Okay.. no further questions.

The 16th Amendment or not the Income tax is still illegal.

The provisions of the Sixteenth Amendment conferred no new power of taxation but simply prohibited the complete and plenary power of income taxation possessed by congress from the beginning from being taken out of the category of indirect taxation to which it inherently belonged..." S. Pacific v. Lowe, 238 F. 847 (US Dist. Ct. S.D., N.Y., 1917); U.S. 330 (1918)

Correct!

What the people keep paying is that never ending "Victory Tax" which became voluntary after it expired. Only government employees were/are required to pay income tax before the "Victory Tax" and after the "Victory Tax" expired.
