Tax Craziness

I was watching a video about how the tax law in unconstitutional. They were focused on this fact: there is no law requiring you to pay income taxes.

The whole thing is a semantic game. The law gives the the government a right to collect taxes (tax law), and a means to seize property if you do not cooperate (enforcement).

Likewise, there is no law that that forbids you from killing someone. However, should you kill someone, the law can prosecute you. That's just the quirky way that laws are written.
