    Really, get over the envy BS. It has no merit.

    As far as the widow goes, yes, she should be taxed on the property. Of course she has the option of selling it if holding onto it doesn't make sense.

    find an argument that makes rational sense

    mob rule might win but that doesn't make it right
    What you contemptuously call MOB RULE is what is more properly called the right of the American people to vote. And the Constitution makes that right.

    I tell my employer this every day, and being that I'm self employed, we are in perfect agreement.

    So people who oppose your views should be fired simply for their views? That gives a whole new perspective to what it means to be a worker and an employer.

    Why is it hilarious? My understanding is that libertarians do believe that there is a role for government, and of course if there is a government it must have revenue.

    Where did I say that capital gains were not part of the law?

    When you attack the American system as being MOB RULE you are not taking issue with one particular issue before the body politic. You are leveling a gross insult towards America, its people and our way of government.

    This seems to be a common theme with so-called conservatives. They purport to believe in radical individual freedom but in the next breath state that they would sack any employee who holds a political view different from theirs.
