Allowing Yourself to Be Robbed: The New Patriotism
So you're unpatriotic if you don't want to pay more in taxes? According to Joe Biden: “it’s time to be patriotic … time to jump in, time to be part of the deal, time to help get America out of the rut.” I suppose that this would be the government pending rut the Democrats put us all in -- and which he and Obama promise to continue full steam ahead. So here's Joe Biden's message: if you complain about us robbing you so that we can pretend to do things to get more votes from the poor and minorities through fostering resentment, then you're not being patriotic. In other words, we should just lie back and enjoy it while we're being raped.
