    the "Right" likes to use in the taxation debate:

    The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes, duties, imposts and excises, to pay the debts and provide for the common defense and general welfare of the United States; but all duties, imposts and excises shall be uniform throughout the United States.
    Except they like to pound the belief that means "dollar for dollar", and not by percentage or relative wealth.

    Any study of American government history - including the Estate Tax debate would show the taxation system was designed precisely to do away with the "Nobility Class".

    If not us ... who? If not here ... where? If not now ... when?
