Is the federal income tax unconstitutional? Is it a fraud perpetrated by a cabal of sneaky elites pushing their self-serving agenda through nefarious means? That would be nice, wouldn’t it? I mean, who loves paying taxes?
Aaron Russo’s America: Freedom to Fascism was a passion project for him. He put this thing together in the last years of his life as he struggled under a $2 million tax debt. He was certain he had found evidence of the unconstitutionality of the United States Federal Income Tax, and was determined to spread the word far and wide, calling for nothing short of revolution.
More accurately, he was certain he had not found evidence of the constitutionality of the tax code. But does lack of such evidence equate with the illegitimacy of the income tax?
