    what is fun is watching them whine about how the children of the rich need to make it on their own while they spend the rest of the time addicting the masses to government handouts

    There is no proper purpose for the government engaging in intergenerational theft to slake the butt hurt envy of parasites

    You clearly don't know much about the constitution with that crack. That citation does not support your claim. you might argue that the government has the power but there is no evidence that the founders intended such nonsense.

    well the founders are dead and are in no position to argue their position.

    that's a silly response. why should those who pay the most income taxes be the only people saddled with death confiscation taxes?

    Didnt the "founders" put that in there? Seems pretty simple they have the power to lay and collect taxes. But wait, I forget only conservatives know the true meaning of the document.

    you probably will argue that the purpose of the commerce clause was to allow the government to prevent a guy from growing wheat on his own farm or for banning someone from owning a machine gun

    you seem confused between having the power to do many things and with the claim that the founders wanted that power to be used to slake the envy of losers by soaking the rich with additional taxes that only they have to pay


    I like how you completely ignored the question I posed to you as well


    do you claim that the death tax was designed to generate revenue or engage in social engineering

    are you aware that the death tax is among the most wasteful and inefficient taxes in US history-costing more in avoidance and administration than it raises? I realize socialists are happy anytime anyone more industrious than they are is taxed more but supporting the death tax is pretty much a given sign of envy or pandering to those who are

    Must have touched a nerve, even implying anything about the TP...
