    It must be easy being liberal. You don't have to think about anything.

    Those dopey founding fathers, when they wrote the Constitution, income tax wasn't even allowed. But we have much smarter liberals now that know way better that Benjamin Franklin, Monroe, Jefferson, etc... Just look at the federal government now, so much better for us!

Please leave me alone.
    Not sure about the person you're responding to, but the writer for Americans for Tax Reform in the article cited by the OP didn't understand gift tax, or estate taxes.

    That's not quite fair - he might have understood fine, but was just dishonest - it is Norquist's operation after all.
