    Excellent examples Turtle. Perhaps the IRS should send video's of just that sort of thing to encourage compliance with the law?

    On the other hand, I suspect more intelligent folks would see it as grossly misrepresenting the entire issue of taxes and compliance and it would only be a campaign that is ridiculed and mocked for its stupidity.

    Today his estate extends over a billion dollars. He is worth more dead than alive

    I strongly suspect its a string of connect the dots which begins with the government coming to arrest some tax evaders and ends with them taking up arms against the government and getting their own asses blown away in the process.

    And that of course translates into the government killing people for non payment of taxes. They will jump from A to Z and conveniently forget the middle letters where the actual reality is.

    Or, it could be an illustration of the extent of the use of "Government force" upon its citizenry. See, progressives see government as in control of peoples lives, where as the Constitution expressly places the individual above government. That is the core of what progressives hate, and what they talk about "change", and "fundamental transformation"....

    its to be expected when people think the rich ought to get on their knees and grovel for the "privilege" of keeping what they have for "NOW"

    I wonder why so many people think the government is so much wiser an entity to use our money than we are

    I have already told you that I support the ending of the estate tax to you the neologism that you embrace as part of your political marching orders.

    All we have to do is consider that transfer of money as normal income and apply the proper tax bracket as we do with all people putting new money into their pocket.

    Yet another advocate of hyperbolic exaggeration and leaving out the necessary contextual details.

    Progressives cannot hate a fiction of your own invention.

    why does the government need that money and what exchange of value accompanies it?

    why are you so enamored with government and why do you constantly want to feed a hog that should have remained a chicken?
