The Framers of the United States Constitution, founders of the United States of America, were wise and had the foresight to ensure that the articles and amendments of that document For the People and By the People should endure. But only if We the People did their duty in ensuring that those that operate OUR government did not usurp, dilute or do away with rights and liberties established. What liberties and rights that remain today can be traced to the framers of the Constitution, their wisdom and their perseverance in establishing a document that would withstand time – only if that document was honored. We the People have allowed politicians and special interest groups to dilute and remove some of those rights because of false promises of those who wish to see government in charge of every facet of the People’ lives. They insist they know better how to run our lives than we do, and have convinced a growing majority that “fair” collectivism is better than individual liberty; when history has proven differently.
Where in the Federalist Papers does it suggest that the Founders intended to tax the labor of its citizens?
