WHEREAS, from November 11th to the 22nd of 2009, the Continental Congress convened pursuant to the People’s formal “Petition for Redress of Grievances Relating to the Federal Income Tax”, and the long train of abuses and usurpations relating to the federal income tax. After a comprehensive, exhaustive, and lengthy deliberation of the current and historical facts and law, the People find:
a. That our servant federal government has failed to directly respond to the People’s Petition, and in fact, has indirectly responded with threats, intimidation, and repeated harm;
b. That the Sixteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution definitively and conclusively failed to be properly and legally ratified, thus, rendering it void, ab initio;
c. That the income tax as currently applied is definitively and conclusively an unconstitutional, direct un-apportioned tax on labor, “the most sacred and inviolable” property of the citizens of the United States (see Butcher’s Union Co. v. Crescent City Co., 111 U.S. 746, 757);
d. That the institutionalized withholding from the paychecks and earnings of the citizens is definitively and conclusively unconstitutional.
