Repeal The 16th Amendment Now

In 1913, the 16th amendment to the U.S. Constitution tossed aside the Founding Fathers' respect for the privacy of an individual to earn an income without government interference. As a direct result of this mistake, we have afflicted ourselves with an incomprehensible and ludicrously inefficient federal tax code.

Sixty years later, the U.S. Supreme Court decided the Constitution that didn't recognize privacy in personal economic activity somehow turned a blind eye in the name of privacy toward anyone who desired to kill another human as long as part of his or her body has not yet emerged from the womb.

Isn't it about time we started to clear up inconsistencies like this?
