Americans do agree on something

So a flat 50% of everything over $50,000.
All income counted, including inheritance.
This is America. Even with all the government provisions that a 50% tax would provide, you can't survive on $25,000 yearly. That is what most people pay on their mortgage alone.

I do have an issue with inheritance tax. I have inherited once (from my father) and you're allowed one exception to the inheritance tax, so I took it that time. Now, when I inherit from my mother, I'm going to get socked with the inheritance tax. I don't think that money which has already been taxed should be taxed again. It's not an "income," it's a birthright.
Maybe I'm too much of a trust fund kid liberal.

You want to put the "volunteer" in "all volunteer military", buy your uniform, bring your own gun, and bring something for the bake sale...
If our rulers ever declared a war that I believed in, I would gladly supply my own gun and uniform. Unfortunately, the wars they start are for the purpose of their on interests, not the interests of the American people.
