"...unless in Proportion to the Census or Enumeration herein."

What's your take on that?
When incorporated with Section 2, "[Representatives and direct taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers,...]", my take is the only method of taxation upon the People, considering the Constitution elsewhere equates the People to the States, is to tax the States.
Enjoying the conversation by the way. Thanks.
