    the federal government should only concern themselves with excise taxes and usage fees (for federal lands)..states can be more liberal in their tax schemes( such as property taxes), but they should also not concern themselves with taxing labor/income

    another fail on your part. I am not going to fall for your usual tactics. You haven't proven anyone wrong no matter how much you say otherwise

    there was no taxes on wealth imposed by the founders

    Irrelevant. It was still a government confiscation of wealth.

    you are not being specific...I wonder why that is?

    I don't believe the govt has ever run for free..I'm not sure why you would tell such a lie.

    semantic twisting won't save your failure here.

    no taxes on wealth-nothing in the constitution that suggests taxes on private wealth

    You're the one who is twisting words, and ironically, it's your own words your twisting

    And all taxes come from someone's wealth
