Wealth tax to wealth destruction

Elizabeth Warren, proponent of a new wealth tax

Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) is, at this writing, the front-runner for the Democratic Party Presidential nomination in 2020. She has proposed a wealth tax as her signature program. That wealth tax presents a clear and present danger to property and liberty, if not to life. It might not even survive a challenge in the highest Court in the land. But even if it does, it bids fair, not merely to confiscate the nation’s wealth, but to destroy it.
