It was NOT legally ratified, although the government and the Federal courts have refused to properly review and acknowledge the clear evidence presented by Bill Benson in "the Law That Never Was". The Democrats pushed for the 16th amendment and were accused of protecting the wealthy elite. That was true then, and it's more true now... Sec'y of State Philander Knox was told in a memo by Solicitor J. Reuben Clark that the states were not acting legally in re-wording the amendment, etc.

But Knox was a tool of the wealthy bankers and ignored Constitutional law, just as the Bilderbergers control the Fascist Democrats in Congress as well as the entire illegal Obama administration. In similar fashion, Obama considers himself above the law and is in the process of making this the Union of Soviet States of America!
