    However rw kooks like to tell lies to the American people and claim that the death tax will rob you from your family's farm.

    Nothing more can be from the truth. The estate tax never robbed a small farmer from passing on his farm to his children, but rw kooks will tell you otherwise.

    I am not a fan of taxation, but taxing uber rich estates is one of the best places to tax. Unfortunately, the GOP think that trustafarians are some of the most productive people in the world. They advocate for perpetual wealth and dynasties, all while claiming that this is American.

    Perpetual wealth, especially created by the government, is hardly American. Wealth is created through hard work and ingenuity, but Republicans hate these American values.

    It is truly disturbing.

    Moonbats keep saying things like this like it actually proves something, and they ignore stories like this one.

    Inheritance taxes and the family farm | The Agonist

    They also ignore facts like these.

    PolitiFact Ohio | Rep. Jim Zehringer on point with comment on loss of family farms in Ohio

    It is easy to make blanket statement that no one has ever lost their farm to the estate tax, it is a lot harder to back it up when the facts are presented.

    You are quickly demonstrating that you know less than nothing about how things work. Keep up the good work.

    And the GOP, not only votes against these American principles, but they bring these issues table.

    Stop being a dishonest kook.

    lol...and you think that our current tax system is superb. That is why you keep defending yourself from my claims.

    You jerk off to the status quo and defend it all too much.

    Come back, when you want to get honest.

    I'd like AD to point out the clause in The Constitution which specifies that it is the Federal Government's purpose to destroy perpetual wealth.

    Where did I say anything positive about the current tax system?

    You come back when you want to be honest, until then you are nothing but a hack.

    The estate tax is one if the worst taxes because it is a tax on capital. It destroys savings I'd scrap it. However, I'd notch up the top marginal income tax rate a point or two to offset the cost of eliminating it.

    They should get rid of the estate tax and just tax income from an inheritance as ordinary income.

    The Constitution actually gives us wide authority to pass our own laws, you may not be aware of this.
