122. Lol. Here's a simple argument that stumps most anti-tax people
Better than 90% of the American public supports the income tax today, because they understand that government services will cease if it goes away. Both major parties support income taxes, and it's only a very tiny, very radical fringe element that opposes it.

If the argument was TRUE that no law existed requiring the income tax to be paid, name one good reason why a bill wouldn't have been introduced, overwhelmingly passed, and ratified into law, correcting that little problem?

The answer is that these people are a joke. There is no law that says "All Americans must pay taxes". There is no law, there is an ENTIRE SECTION OF LAWS. Title 26, US Code.
