The Money Changers Pt.1 - A.J. Porth Speech

The Money Changers Pt.1 - A.J. Porth Speech

A.J. Porth was a building contractor in the 1950's based in Wichita Kansas who decided one day to stop withholding income and social security taxes from the paychecks of his employees because he felt that providing free accounting services for the government was a violation of the spirit, if not the letter of the 13th ammendment of the Constitution which forbids involuntary servitude. This single act of defiance restarted the American tax revolt. Porth and his followers suffered great persecution finding it difficult to get lawyers to properly represent them. At one point Mr. Porth spent 77 days in a nut factory for his resistance to tyranny. Here is part one of a recording called "The Money Changers" which features an undated speech by Mr. Porth. Part 2 will feature a speech from the same gathering by attorney Jerome Daly, another legend from the early tax revolt days.
