Move Before You Die

With the refusal of the Senate to vote on a permanent repeal of the estate tax, and see Don Luskin's site for the fake "yes" votes by a number of Democrats up for election, when we win the lottery, we can move to any of the following countries whose estate tax is nil (thanks to Cato):

Argentina 0
Australia 0
Canada 0
China 0
Colombia 0
Cyprus 0
Czech Rep. 0
Estonia 0
India 0
Indonesia 0
Israel 0
Latvia 0
Lithuania 0
Malaysia 0
Mexico 0
New Zealand 0
Portugal 0
Russia 0
Slovak Rep. 0
Slovenia 0
Sweden 0
Switzerland 0
Thailand 0

Those are zeros, not letters. The US estate tax ranks 3rd internationally at 46% behind South Korea at 50% and Japan at 70%.
