    explained to me a little better, I see a mistake you've made here.  

    Each sentence of the Constitution is not separate unto itself. The 4th Amendment would be violated every time taxes are withheld.  Did we not grant Congress such authority under Article 1 Section 8? They don't go to a court every week and sign an oath or affirmation to do so. Heck it could be claimed taxes are cruel and unusual punishment without due process.  Violating the 5th & 8th Amendments...

    Does this make any sense to you yet???

    As for laws or statutes outside of that document is a separate issue.  But the totality of the Constitution itself is pretty clear when viewed as a whole.

    -7.62; -5.95 The scientists of today think deeply instead of clearly. One must be sane to think clearly, but one can think deeply and be quite insane.~Tesla
