Rx: Repeal The Progressive Era

Michael Walsh mounts the ramparts
You’re on to something I’ve been advocating for years now.

And that is the repeal of all four of the so-called “Progressive Era” amendments, including the 16th, 17th, 18th and 19th, which were passed between 1911 and 1920.

• The income-tax amendment was a self-evident attack on capitalism and led to the explosive growth of the federal government we currently enjoy today. (Without it, there’d be no need for a Balanced Budget Amendment.)

Direct elections of senators has given us, among other wonders, the elevation of John F. Kerry to, now, secretary of state.
