I guess none of any country's borders, or governments of the world mean anything to you,
since the Sovereignty of Nations, through conquest, or war is the legitimate, and accepted means most countries came into being.

BTW,
I am not a "descendant of illegals"
since my Italian, my Irish, my German, and my Czech great grandparents all observed the laws in place when they emigrated to the USA.
It involved being sponsored by Americans already living here, years of waiting, long lines when they got here, and assimilation to the American way of life once they arrived.

You should try it sometime.

In 1906, with the election of President Theodore Roosevelt, and later his successor William Howard Taft, the United States saw a populous movement for tax reform. This movement culminated in February 1913 with the ratification of the Sixteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution:

The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration.

This granted Congress the specific power to create a direct income tax. By February 1913, 36 states had ratified the change to the Constitution. It was further ratified by six more states by March. Of the 48 states at the time, 42 ratified. Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Utah rejected the amendment; Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Florida did not take up the issue.

What is the highest tax rate imposed on income in The United States of America, who was the President at that time, and why did both houses of Congress vote to approve it?

And the answer is ....

All revenue bills must originate in the House of Representatives under the U.S. Constitution, at the federal level at least.

Taft weighed over 300 pounds.

Massachusetts No Sales Tax for Alcohol Initiative, Question 1
The measure would ask voters whether or not to repeal a sales tax for alcohol sales.
This proposed law would remove the Massachusetts sales tax on alcoholic beverages and alcohol, where the sale of such beverages and alcohol or their importation into the state is already subject to a separate excise tax under state law. The proposed law would take effect on January 1, 2011.
A "YES" vote would remove the state sales tax on alcoholic beverages and alcohol where their sale or importation into the state is subject to an excise tax under state law.
A "NO" vote would make no change in the state sales tax on alcoholic beverages and alcohol.
How will you vote on November 2nd?
