1. Very well written. Perhaps Reagan did not know about the triple-whammy our Constitutional form of government took in 1913, when the Sixteenth Amendment (allowing the federal government to collect income taxes directly from the people), Seventeenth Amendment (stripping state governments of their influence on the federal government through the Senate), and the Federal Reserve Act were adopted. A short, well-researched, and very readable book on this subject is Oliver DeMille’s “1913.”
