As far as capital gains, I honestly don't care. The only problem I have with capital gains is that the gain ought to be true gains, not gains due to devaluation of the currency. As far as the rate, there must be some reason why the law specifies a lower rate. Perhaps the rate is lower for a good reason.
Once a person pays income tax on their earnings, they should be able to share their own money to their spouse or children without their spouse or children being taxed on it. Money or wealth moving among family members does not seem to me like a taxable event.So why should the average American, who makes their money through salary and wages, support such a system knowing full well that they are taxed in ways that make them the losers in this system because they earn their money through work and labor?
I actually think that the average American shares this opinion.
