Before There Were Income Taxes …

… there were tariffs. That’s how Uncle Sam fed the beast way back when. The government still collects taxes even with the income tax. Surprised? I didn’t think so.

Hat tip to The Club For Growth, which also points to a bizarre interview where Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid argues that America’s tax system is voluntary.

I’m pretty sure Reid, D-Nev., went to the Bill Clinton School Of Parsing — and failed.
