A Disturbing Tax Revelation: Another Reason to Dislike Congress and Distrust Democrats?

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Sept. 19 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Like a reflex reaction, it seems natural for people quickly to associate our dreaded annual income tax with the I.R.S.

Garrison, who has served honorably on the legal staff of a major State of Florida law enforcement agency, and who has been active for over two decades in tax history research and tax reform activism, has delved into the history of those questionable events in Congress that led to the establishment of our modern income tax, fearlessly revealing in his book the legislative corruption that went into the system at its inception.
