    Given the choice between death tax and paying taxes when I give my son 100 bucks for his birthday... I choose Canada! Now that's saying something!

    Mostly because I was faced with the choice, though. As things stand, I will stick it out here.

    I'd like all those subject to the death tax to unite and wreak financial havoc on those who keep whining for the death tax. right now lots of rich libs parrot the leftwing propaganda because they think they will make more money with the dems in power than they will get to save if a less parasitic party runs things. But hopefully the wealth stealing lower class yappers will convince those rich liberals that the envious hate them as much as the envious hate the prosperous right wingers

    I wonder how many of the 21 who said yes are actually paying a federal income tax effective rate of 15%.

    I bet not many of them

    yes, this is what I pay in taxes, divided by my total income before taxes & deductions.

    or after the deductions.

    That is both unfortunate as well as too much information. I find it to be an acquired taste.

    But just how would this army of the trust fund babies work to effect the blackmail they want to exert over the government?

    easy. For example, firing those from businesses they own. blackballing such people. refusing to support any non-profit that has tax hikers as employees or officers. not giving any money to any politician who is a class jihadist.

    it could be rather punishing on our little che's
