This thread is deeply perplexing and disturbing.
I'm on here via iPhone. Not ideal for giving a good response, but man, we are going down the sewer fast when the Gates' and Buffett's and other elite hypocrites can hoodwink fools into backing the reinstitution of the "death tax" which they support but are exempt from.
Take a farmer, he's land rich, cash poor. The land he's worked all his life has gone up in great value. He's poor and lives meager and frugal. Upon his death without estate planning, the ever noble intentioned government comes in and destroys with evil malignity of purpose the whole enterprise. Due within 9 months, is a vast sum in cash to the greedy and bloated vipers we call Uncle Sam. The heirs to this estate do not have that kind of money. They only way to raise such wicked and burdensome funds is to sell off the land, usually at a fraction of the worth in that 9 month time frame, to pay an evil government that is vastly more wasteful than private holders of wealth could ever be.
Gone is the inheritance this family had. The land and farm/ranch they loved was just devoured and eaten away.
The founding fathers supported this? Ahahaha. Now that's a history book I've got to see. Bull pucky!
Jefferson in his second innaugural rejoiced that in these United States, there is no man, be he farmer, laborer, or mechanic who had ever seen a tax gatherer. That is freedom. That is liberty.
The true elite, the Moneychangers, love stupid Americans that buy the damned propaganda of government textbooks and adopt schemes, philosophies, that ensure class Warfare and envy, that will eliminate freedom and prosperity, shrinking the middle class so that we move back into a collectivist feudalism where there are foolish serfs and the elite who suffer nothing in form of competition, as government is the all-consuming monster destroying all opportunity and keeping the rest of all but the ruling elite down into squallar and wretchedness.
Damn big government! I hate it and all it's oppression. I'm dumbfounded at how many people foolishly look to lying politicians for answers and expect government to be a solution. Government is the greatest problem we face today, on every single front, educationally, health wise, financially, and it is the greatest threat to out peace, and pursuit of happiness.
