Show Me The Law!

Just a thought about the campaign called “Show Me The Law”, referring to the act of asking for the law in court which requires a person in the United States to pay the Federal Income Tax.

Mr. Aaron Russo had the right idea in his documentary, “America: Freedom To Fascism”, but just didn’t go far enough down the rabbit hole to get at the root of the issue. For the most important aspect of the Federal Code called the INTERNAL REVENUE CODE is that it is not in fact law, but rather what is called Prima Facie Law, or “presumed” law.

The presumption of law requires one very important thing to become an enforceable law… Consent. This most wonderful of words is the basis of this Prima Facie presumed law; the presumption being that you consent to this presumed law (the IRS Code) by silence, which is a powerful form of consent. If you do not agree that the law is fair and just, you must state loud and clearly that you do not consent to that law.

Even after hours of examination and oration in a federal tax court, never actually uncovering the lawful requirement to pay the tax, people are still being found guilty of income tax evasion.

But the word “evasion” would imply (it would be presumed by the court and the IRS) that the person being charged with the crime of “tax evasion” consents to the fact that the IRS Code is in fact law in the first place. By failing to state verbally, loudly, and repeatedly that one does not consent to an admitted and completely presumed Prima Facie law, one acquiesces to the entire Internal Revenue Code by simple silence – acquiescence to presumed law by lack of verbal non-consent.

For a more complete understanding of consent, please read my previous post here:


But this is what it boils down to, straight from the Federal Code:

(Reprint from link above)

“…of the 50 “TITLES” in UNITED STATES CODE, only 23 of those TITLES have been enacted into positive law; i.e. legal evidence of law (Congressional Statutory Law). These TITLES are as follows:

1, 3, 4, 5, 9, 10, 11, 13, 14, 17, 18, 23, 28, 31, 32, 35, 36,37, 38, 39, 40, 44, 46, and 49.

All other TITLES within the federal U.S. CODE are what is called “Prima Facie” evidence of law. Prima facie is not statutory law (not made into law by congress), which means that it is only enforceable via your voluntary consent.

So here it is, in black and white. The Internal Revenue Code (not law, but CODE) is in Title 26, which is not listed above as congressional statutory law, and is therefore presumed law…




§ 7701. Definitions

(Source link:—-000-.html )

(a) When used in this title, where not otherwise distinctly expressed or manifestly incompatible with the intent thereof—

(1) Person

The term “person” shall be construed to mean and include an individual, a trust, estate, partnership, association, company or corporation.
(14) Taxpayer

The term “taxpayer” means any person subject to any internal revenue tax.


(Source: )

According to the list above, TITLE 26, which holds the INTERNAL REVENUE CODE that is used by the Internal Revenue Service as the basis to tax, steal, imprison, subjugate, and ruin the lives of many Americans… IS NOT STATUTORY LAW. Therefore… IT REQUIRES CONSENT!

This means that the entire basis for the Income Tax levied on the people of America is strictly voluntary!

If the word “taxpayer” as defined above in paragraph (14) is any “person” as defined above in paragraph (1) that is “subject to any internal revenue tax”, and if the U.S. CODE states that it requires consent for the so defined “person” to be subject to any authority presented by the IRS and it’s non-Statutory, Prima Facie INTERNAL REVENUE CODE, then no individual Free Man or Woman in America is required to pay an income tax on their monies earned, unless they consent to doing so by signing the corporate IRS and IRC paperwork that binds them to the tax as a contract.

(End reprint)

So in actuality, we are asking the wrong question in court!

We should not be simply asking “Please show me the law”, for that implies consent to the entirety of the IRS CODE, and thus consent to presumed law.

Instead, we should be asking the following question:

“Please show me the law that allows this prima facie presumed law in TITLE 26 to be used against me without my consent. I DO NOT CONSENT!!!”

Repeat as needed…

Please note that this is not legal advice, and is only being provided as an explanation of the law from the U.S. CODE. Please research and verify everything yourself. This covers all past and future writings by myself. And may I state that it is indeed sad that I must make this statement for fear of retribution by the makers of these tyrannies.
