We didn't have an income tax before 1913. We would simply pay for government with through excise taxes and tariffs. We already get 55% of our revenue through these means anyways. Cut government spending and you don't need an income tax. Nothing wrong with helping the poor. I do it by donating my time, and money to the local rescue mission. You do the poor a dis service when they are treated as victims. Give them a hand up, not a hand out. Giving money to washington so they can spend it killing innocent people over seas, and housing illegal aliens is not what I want to fund.
