It is a simple question, “Why do people want to give their rights away?” This is everything from gun control, to taxation. Overtime, people, including our ancestors, slowly gave our rights away.
Take the income tax for example. Who in their right mind is stupid enough to allow the government to tax their income? Replies may be along the lines of how the income tax was supposed to be voluntary. Or that the income tax was supposed to only affect the rich.
Once the income tax amendment was passed, it opened the flood gates for government abuses. For decades the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has been used as a political weapon. All of this was voted on by the states and the people who allowed the Sixteenth Amendment (Amendment XVI) to the United States Constitution to come into existence.
