Regardless of any connection that may have had with events today, it is clear that the underlying motive of the present drive for regional government is the consolidation of state and local governments into regional units under total federal control. The people will be excluded from the political and governmental processes.”

“If the day should ever arrive, (which God forbid!), when the people of the different parts of our country shall allow their local affairs to be administered by prefects sent from Washington, and when the self-government of the states shall have been so far lost as that of the departments of France, or even so far as that of the counties of England–on that day the progressive political career of the American people will have come to an end, and the hopes that have been built upon it for the future happiness and prosperity of mankind will be wrecked forever.” – John Fiske, historian, quoted in “Our Changing Constitution” by Charles W. Pierson, Doubleday, Page & Company, 1922.Unfortunately, God did not forbid it, and the day of control of local affairs by Washington is here. It comes in the form of “regionalism” and the weapon for imposing it is federal “revenue-sharing”.

Regionalism is the consolidation of local and state governments into large regional units and the centralization of power in bureaucratic authorities, boards, and commissions whose primary function will be to administer plans and programs dictated by Washington.

We’ve found traces of Regionalism as far back as the 1920’s, in fact, the 1922 book mentioned above dealt with the federal incursions into state and local affairs and the Constitutional perversions used to justify it. More

 This site will forever end the conflict between the various “tax honesty movement” groups and the enforcement of the internal revenue laws.  First of all, when dealing with the federal government of the United States, one must learn the definitions of the government’s legal “terms”.  So let’s start with the definition of the term “taxpayer”.

The Social Security Scam – Why all taxpayers must file income tax returns

          You have been told that Social Security is an insurance program run by the federal government.  You were led to believe that your income would be taxed at a certain rate for the cost of the program.  Then in times of medical emergency or upon retirement you would be eligible for Social Security benefits.  On the surface, this would seem to be an equitable arrangement.  

          But the federal government failed to fully inform you as to all of the other ramifications of applying for a Social Security number.  For instance, did you know that you became a federal employee?  Well, you did – specifically you became a member of the Merchant Marine.  You also became an employee of a corporation that is involved with importing to and from the U.S. possessions.  Another consideration is that if FICA is based upon a percentage of your earnings, then the government has somehow been granted the right to know the amount of your income and the sources of your income – this is not a hallmark of freedom.  These statements and more will be evidenced by the actual federal statutes and regulations further on this page.

          Like all great magicians, the federal government has you looking at the obvious while hiding the basis of the trick that the magician is performing right in front of your eyes.

          Lots of Americans have questioned the legitimacy of the personal income tax, but it seems that everyone just loves the Social Security program.  Social Security is the sacred cow that no one is ever supposed to criticize.  Oh, sure, some claimants of Social Security find fault with what claims are denied or only partially funded.  And lots of people are now pointing out that Social Security is not going to be solvent in the near future.  But up till now no one has questioned the legitimacy of the Social Security program.  Well, that time has come.
