If a LOT of people tried to make a run on the banks, the government would allow then to limit access to your money. Pretty sure that exact thing either happened or almost happened during the crash of 2008.

Also, the issue of cops confiscating money has nothing to do with "drunks" as you say, but is rather a "legal" means of relieving people who have committed no crime of their money - it's called civil forfeiture, and cops aren't the only ones doing it. Cross reference that term with the city of Philadelphia, and prepare to be utterly disgusted.

When the Constitution was written, "income" was defined as "profits from business transactions," not money exchanged for labor. In other words, the entire modern concept of "income taxes" is a complete FUCK YOU to the nation's less well off population.

I don't blame you for failing to understand the distinction; after all, it has been a century since the wealthy pulled off that particular scam.

Like the time the ACLU fought for the KKK's right to protest on the courthouse steps? Or rather, are you making a snap judgement based on a preconceived notion you got not from your own research into the organization, but from some media outlet?

My guess, the latter.
