Biden: Letting Us Take Your Money Is “Patriotic”

Just because they badmouth our country at every opportunity, attempt to cause it to lose wars, side with its foreign critics, and strive to “Change” it into something unrecognizable doesn’t mean Democrats aren’t patriotic. They just exhibit a different kind of patriotism.

Love of country is a hard thing to describe. But liberals’ alternative has the advantage of following a simple definition: That which helps our monstrously bloated government to grow still more gigantic at the expense of our wealth and our liberty is patriotic.

Plugs Biden offers an example:

Biden was asked by a supporter what she should tell her wealthy friends concerned about the Democratic presidential ticket’s tax increase for those making more than $250,000.

“It’s time to be patriotic, that’s what you say to them,” he replied.

No doubt it would also be patriotic to consider it morally righteous to rob from “the rich” while offering dubious “tax cuts” to the alleged beneficiaries of the metastasizing government programs the loot will finance. A true patriot would also pretend not to realize that raising taxes on the wealthy will have a trickle-down effect on the rest of us by driving investment down and unemployment up.

Uncle Joe: Letting us confiscate your money is “patriotic.”
