Watching a fascinating video right now documenting the notion that various taxes paid by US citizens were never ratified as legal by the US government. I'll let that sink in for a second.
I don't know if this is all true, but if it is it's pretty shocking stuff. Federal income tax, that everyone's been paying since the turn of last century, may not be legally enforceable. The taxes that do come in, it's said, go to US debt, and don't even touch the various services people assume their taxes are paying for.
