Most problems arise from Unenumerated taxation.
Get rid of all Unenumerated flat percentage Taxation and Obey the Original Constitution(s) which are based upon "ENUMERATED" taxation, gaining the peoples CONSENT on WHAT it is to be spent on BEFORE being collected.
It is Unenumerated taxes which feed governments ARBITRARY wants AFTER they collect it WITHOUT gaining the peoples consent first. (income tax, Flat tax and FairTax schemes are all Unenumerated Flat percentage taxes)
Article 1 Section 9:
"No Capitation, or OTHER direct, Tax shall be laid, UNLESS in "Proportion to the Census or ENUMERATION" herein BEFORE directed to be TAKEN."
Amended (Unconstitutionally) to:
"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 of ENUMERATION."
The amendment is Unconstitutional because changing the delegated power of from ENUMERATED taxation to UNENUMERATED taxation is an ARROGATION of POWER, EXPRESSLY PROHIBITED; and cannot be ratified or amended as this would be a "MEANS" to subvert the Constitutional COMPACT.
See this explained by the founders in the
Virginia Ratifying Convention 6-16-1788:

Edmund Pendleton: "...they must pursue some of the "DELEGATED powers", but can by "NO MEANS" depart from them, (N)OR "ARROGATE" "ANY NEW" powers; for the PLAIN LANGUAGE of the clause is, to give them power to pass laws in order to give "effect" to the "DELEGATED" powers"...."
