    It isn't money being taxed twice. When you make your income, you pay taxes. When your offspring inherit your estate as income, they pay taxes on their income.

    Obviously Sam doesn't know the difference between a Classical Liberal and a Liberal or Progressive. A little bit of research would give you the answer.

    I’d like a sourced quote from Harris saying “MUSLIMS are bad.” I like you guys but you consistently misrepresent him. He talks about Islam, not Muslims.

    What the advocates of ending estate tax ignore is that almost all wealth taxed is capital gains which have never been taxed, and basis rises to the value at the time of death, and absent estate tax, those gains will never be taxed at all.

    Rubin thinks socialism is crazy and yet he's a libertarian. Tell me Dave, how many countries have adopted libertarianism?

    All capatalist countries have adopted an element of socialism

    So basically your brilliant response is "Yea but it's rich people so who cares lol"

    Libertarians must be horrified to argue with you. Who actually thinks you get to keep your basic rights if your rich!?!? Fucking dumbasses.

    Edit. Holy shit the follow up to your brilliant point is to basically indicate that you don't understand the basic concepts of currency and income. That was dumber than anything Dave Rubin could ever say. "Money is taxed over and over again durr Your boss was taxed when he made money, then he paid you and you were taxed. So like why shouldn't you get taxed on your property as many times as the govt wants?

    To clarify for you titans of debate since people like Dave Rubin are probably pissing their pants at the thought of debating you. The problem isn't that "the money" (like do you imagine its the same set of dollar bills and shit getting passed around) is taxed twice. It's that the we have a set of taxes we pay as part of living. We pay an income tax as a general matter of contributing what we can to the public purse and then we pay taxes along the way when we deem that the activity involved should be taxed. Dying does not burden the govt in any fucking way. There is no reason to argue that somehow an individual owes society something when he dies. That money was in his bank account, fully his and not subject to tax at all, he made a will bequeathing it to his family. How does your argument justify the govt basically saying "yea no half of that is ours"? It's not rooted in ANY legitimate rationale for taxation. You nailed the rationale in the beginning. "We want to take the money and your rich so no one will feel bad for you, fuck off Richie Rich" so yea expert logic right there. I can only imagine how much of a debate you would have with a libertarian economist. Probably involves a wedgie or swirlie from what I can tell.

    This is a pretty bad argument. Bringing in a figure of 1billion to make it seem like “look how much money they have left its ok they still have a lot”- righttt well its either right or wrong it doesnt matter how much the money is. Its the estate’s money to pass on. It doesn’t matter if its $1 or $1billion. The double tax is a valid argument because the money has already been taxed and is ONLY being taxed again for simply being given to someone else. Its a false equivalency to say its like sales tax. Sales tax can be another debate but its using the money to purchase something. If you want to say thats the same than by the same argument the estate money is being triple taxed once it is used to buy something….

    Most estate tax money is untaxed capital gains. Capital gains baseline goes to full value at time of death. Unless we tax inherited income at purchase price of decedent, it’s never going to be taxed without estate tax.

    I completely disagree with this guy, he is simply as liar and he is doing it on purpose. I still beleive that Rubin should have him on. As should Harris.

    Dave Rubin is the quintessence of mediocrity but so is Sam Seder. Not a single cogent argument anywhere in that web of stammering stutters.

    I'm not an expert on Harris, but the type of criticism I see of him makes me wonder what happened to nuance. Harris clearly has a problem with the religion of Islam, but not a problem with Muslim people as a whole. It is a fine distinction, but a distinction all the same. To point out that terrorists can justify there actions through the text of the Qur'an, is not to say that Muslim people are horrible for following the text. Every time I have seen a criticism of Harris, it involves taking his taking his comments out of context. When that gets pointed out, people say things like Harris, is hedging what he says, so that he can defend himself later. But that is nonsense. He hedges, because he is making a nuanced argument that should not be applied generally, but only to the specific situations he is referring to.

    Ha! Saw the video title, thought, "I wonder what this guy has to say," found out this Sam Seder character has very little besides poisoning-the-well and straw-man fallacy.

    Not always. But, there is a risk involved in not paying the tax on whatever your purchasing…

    Since Libertarian challenge callers are in hiatus, why don't you start a Conservative challenge: main cognitive dissonance being conservatives shout at the top of their lungs about being family valued, but their policies tend to create the most extreme inequalities which, since inequality follows a Pareto distribution, will tend to oppress more and more families over time, at least in relative terms. (Not to mention their death penalty fetishes and war fetishes.) The other being they claim to be THE pro-business party, but their policies typically crush small businesses and promote inevitable monopolies (inevitable under their laissez faire policies). A third being they claim to be righteous and christian and traditional, but they routinely seek to defund and destroy government programes and social welfare – how is that possibly "christian" in ANY sense of the word? A fourth being they say they are for small government, but their policies tend to give political power to corporations, which are an even worse de facto government, far worse in fact, seeing as how you cannot easily vote a corporation out of power.
