Posts Tagged ‘inherited wealth’

America is supposed to be the land of opportunity, right? Anyone willing to work and use the talents that God gave them should be able to prosper honestly. So why have I been hearing so much blather about the “rich” being penalized for having done just that? Why so much spite about their share of taxes? Why such focus on trying to shoot down their lifestyle with legislation targeting just them? Is this spite one of the reasons that President Trump is being dissed by the liberal media? Because he has earned money?

Does anyone honestly think Mr. and Ms. Average person is going to be able to get ahead themselves if we allow this to continue? It is seriously time to rethink the practice of allowing this to go uncorrected in the public arena. It is time to get rid of death duties. It is time to repeal legislation that penalizes parents who leave viable assets to their children. It is way past time to repeal the income tax, state and federal. We can find less intrusive ways to fund things necessary to the public weal.

There is nothing wrong with inherited wealth people. Just think how much easier your life would be if mom and dad left you the family home so that you would not have to slave most of your life to pay off a mortgage(or a car, or a student loan, or thousands of credit card debt). Think about your own children. Don’t you care that their lives are being burdened with so much life long debt because it has been made legislatively impossible to provide for them as well as you can? Do you want to be the generation known for giving your children a stone instead of bread?

America will not get back on track financially until we address these issues. Let’s get back to the mindset of allowing prosperity honestly come by, through personal effort, even if it is a generation removed, to earn it’s rightful place again. It is supposed to be the American Way.
