My favorite one was Aura complaining about Christianity and her misunderstanding about "sharing the wealth". See, liberals FORCE everyone rich who they don't like to give money to the politicians who then give it to other people they like - including themselves. Christians are encouraged to give freely and CHOOSE to be charitable. Aura really needs to read the parable of the Widow's mites. That is what Christianity is all about - voluntary sacrifice for the benefit of others, not forced income redistribution.

Dear Comrade Eric,

No, I’m not confused. I think perhaps you don’t understand how tax law actually operates in real life.

Even assuming that the Buffett rule raises taxes on capital gains, there are easy ways for rich people to avoid paying capital gains taxes.

Unlike income taxes, a person can choose...
