This article presents views of the author in favor of the need of fundamental changes in U.S. tax policies. According to the author, people need to re-enact constitutional limitations redefining the kind of government they want. Twenty-five of the state legislatures have approved amendment related to tax limitation. People need to limit the Federal government's power to impose taxes on the people, which will automatically curtail government spending. If the money is withheld officials cannot carry the country into socialism and communism.
