ISV - I am the true vine, and my Father is the vintner
Vinter means "winemaker" Winemaking, or vinification, is the production of wine, starting with selection of the grapes or other produce and ending with bottling the finished wine.
KJV - I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.
Now which one fits better or is the better translation?
Your point was highly exaggerated and had nothing to do with my comments about taxes.
"The nation had few taxes in its early history. From 1791 to 1802, the United States government was supported by internal taxes on distilled spirits, carriages, refined sugar, tobacco and snuff, property sold at auction, corporate bonds, and slaves. The high cost of the War of 1812 brought about the nation's first sales taxes on gold, silverware, jewelry, and watches. In 1817, however, Congress did away with all internal taxes, relying on tariffs on imported goods to provide sufficient funds for running the government." - History of the Income Tax in the United States — Infoplease.com
The Civil War (the beginning of the end) greatly expanded "Federalism" to a status that had the founders rolling over in their graves. The Federal government was never ment to have the kind of power it has today.
