    I do not think its right to tax something that someone has already paid taxes on. Its just like these vehicle registrations and property taxes, there should one be a one time tax at the time of the purchase and thats it.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I too believe that everything contained in the estate of a deceased individual has already been taxed once, twice, or possibly to death (literally). To consider the items and amounts that are willed to individuals as income to them is ludicrous.

    Well at least DC isn't full of the idiots on this board that voted no.. Something the American people should be happy about. What Americans should be unhappy about was that an amendment like this was even suggested. Just saying.

    Why should the government be able to tax the same thing that you already paid taxes on at the time of the sale over and over again?

    . Something the American people should be happy about.
    Why should Americans be happy about legalized theft?

    What Americans should be unhappy about is the fact the government can extort money out of you over something you already paid taxes on. I guess it takes a liberal mindset to think that it is okay to forcefully take money from others.

    I just thought of something... the colonies went to war with one of the reasons being taxation without representation. Since the property belongs to a dead person wouldn't that be taxation without representation?

    Idiots? Guess that shoots down the theory that you were interested in anything like a debate, or an honest discussion. Might I recommend that in the future, just state what the correct answer is in your OP so the folks that don't agree with you can find a more honest thread for discussion.

    Come again?

    So if Harry buys a stock at $5 with after tax dollars and dies when it's at $15, that gain of $10 has already been taxed?

    If so, when was that gain ever taxed?
