    Don't have to, it's been done throughout. Did you happen to miss it?
    It's all over the thread, guess you did miss it. Shucks.
    Lets see what we have when you are asked for proof or evidence of you proving me wrong

    1- EVERYTHING you say is wrong
    2- its all over the thread
    3- its been done throughout
    4- its obvious
    5- here is a definition of the word definition
    6- you missed it

    These are almost as good as the ones used by some of your fellow righties
    1- its common sense
    2- its common knowledge
    3- everybody here agrees with me
    4- you are wrong
    5 - its the law
    6- it doesn't apply to this situation

    That sort of nonsense would not keep a person on a college debate team for five minutes. And after all that, we still have no evidence that any one thing I said can be proven wrong or incorrect.

    1- I want ALL Americans who earn as much as one dollar to be taxed more
    2- what constitutes a rational policy is indeed a matter of national discussion between the people and their elected representatives.... something you think is an unholy act.

    Re: which best describes your view of the inheritance tax?

    inheritance tax?.. i'm against it.

    the money has already been taxed as income... and I think the family of the deceased have more of a claim to it than the government does.

    I think if contemporary liberal families want to donate some , or all,of their inheritance to Uncle Sam, they are free to do so... knock yourself out.

    I note you want the government to have much more money

    you want those who live on dividends to pay perhaps almost THREE TIMES MORE TAXES

    Actually I want the government to pay its current bills and not pass them on to my grandchildren.
    Actually I want the government to balance its annual budget.
    Actually I want the government to pay off the national deficit.
    Isn't that what most of you claim you want also?

    New owner of the money since it changed hands. New tax on it with the new owner. Thus, it has not already been taxed on current owner.

    That is the way money works. The same money is taxed again and again and again when it changes hands - just like an inheritance.

    so do i but taxing those who aren't the cause of the massive spending and who pay too much isn't the proper avenue

    1) cut massively government spending-the less constitutionally proper the action, the more it should be cut

    2) if taxes have to be raised, raise them on those who demand much and pay little. they might demand less

    Of course. I am advocating for a balanced budget - and that benefits all of us. I am advocating for the government not running up more debt. And that benefits all of us. And I am advocating for our grandchildren not having to be saddled with our debts. And that benefits future generations.
