    Wealth - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary
    4a : all property that has a money value or an exchangeable value
    b : all material objects that have economic utility;
    Taxes are a govt confiscation of money. Money is a material object that has economic utility.

    Therefore, taxes are a govt confiscation of wealth.

    Maybe. But so are the dems. The Dems in power for the last 50+ years has been the greatest thing that happened to corporatism.

    But I will take crony capitalism over mass stupidity of the Liberals, progressives and other socialist anyday.
    Only a fool measures equality by results and not opportunities.

    wealth noun \ˈwelth also ˈweltth\
    : a large amount of money and possessions

    : the value of all the property, possessions, and money that someone or something has

    : a large amount or number
    this is the definition form your link that you dishonesty chose to ignore

    tell me,Sagnha.. how am i factually incorrect when I gave the most common definition?
