    So yeah, take from the rich, give to the poor...?

    Nice red-herring and strawman arguments! You should be so proud of yourself to being able to put together an irrelevant conclusion by misrepresenting someone else's argument.

    The very fact we have here is like the mass majority of the liberal authoritarian party called the Democrats whom seem to have no problem raising taxes on other people, but not even for a second would think about donating their own money when they're nothing more than rich pigs themselves.

    I'm not understanding this argument fully. Did Ted Kenney do something wrong by being rich? Do you have any idea how many charities and how much money Kennedy donated to??

    I'll give you a hint: He donated more money to charities in the past year than income you will ever make in your entire life.

    Surely, you'd be able to post a link or two then.

    And I already said I have no problem with people being rich, my problem is with those like Ted Kennedy that while rich don't give money to charities yet demand that everyone else gets taxed. But of course, any typical fan of taxes is going to ignore that.

    Basically the Kennedys various foundations sponsor a lot of charitable activities. If they operate like most liberal non profits however the pimary purpose isn't to help the poor unless you consider supporting the liberal agenda helping the poor which it isn't.

    Further our current tax system doesn't penalize old money. What it does do is make the creation of new wealth very difficult
