OK, Mr. Constitution, prepare to back up your hot air

The Founding Fathers intended that tariffs be the primary means of funding the federal government. All personal income, sales, property, and estate taxes are unconstitutional and should be abolished.

Where in the Constitution does it say that corporations have the right to exist? Corporations ARE governments -- they have a Board of Directors, elected by the shareholders, who appoint a President and Vice-President. Like politicians, corporate officers are granted by the State legal immunity from personal liability for their actions. Corporations are creatures of the State. Why should corporate officers have the State-granted privilege of no personal responsibility for their actions while the citizens and mom and pop businesses do not enjoy that same State-granted privilege?

Where in the Constitution does it say the government has the right to keep and bear arms? The Declaration of Independence says you have the right to life.
