    I guess the other founders rejected his sentiments. Jefferson also died with a debt higher than the government's. Didn't they call him the First Democrat?
    So what? A founder is a founder is a founder. Deal with it. Or don't. It matters not.

    sorry Turtle, but I know no such thing.

    If you want me to know it, please provide the verifiable data to convince me. Your word simply does not suffice.

    apparently most of the founders rejected Franklin's desires

    So what? It matters not. The fact is that the material was introduced to counter your Halloween fantasy that they were all untied in your value system and beliefs. The quotes prove this is a 225 year old debate that goes back to the start of the nation.

    This was not your Halloween boogey man invented by FDR of Democrats running for office.

    so if one justice dissents you would claim that the court's opinion supported your interpretation which is in concert with the dissent?

    the fact is no document that has any binding authority created by the founders supported a desire to loot private wealth as you seem to desire

    Where do you get this stuff from? Show me in the Constitution where it forbids an estate tax. If you cannot do that you cannot keep invoking the founders on your side.
