    Can someone please cite this for me?   

    Amendment 10 says "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

    I can quote Article 1, Section 8, if you like, or read it here:

    But those are the only things authorized for the Congress to do, and nowhere is listed anything about confiscating part of your paycheck to give to someone else.   In fact, nowhere is there any authorization for taxation other than to carry out the powers listed above.   

    So, what's your argument?
