Election season has brought the usual flood of TV commercials – generally trying to scare voters about the evils to expect if the opponent is elected. The ads are often marked by outlandish claims and even outright lies, but the ones deserving first prize for deception concern the so-called “death tax.”

Who knows, perhaps these folks even believe what the political consultants asked them to say – they have been brainwashed with the claims for so long.
