Biden on Patriotism

Democrat VP nominee Sen. Joe Biden redefines patriotism:

Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden says that paying higher taxes is the patriotic thing to do for wealthier Americans.

Biden says he and Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama want to “take money and put it back in the pocket of middle-class people.”

Under the Democrats’ economic plan, people earning more than $250,000 a year would pay more in taxes while those earning less — the vast majority of American taxpayers — would receive a tax cut.

Biden told ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Thursday that, in his words, “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.”

Really, paying more taxes is patriotic?  This call to “help get America out of the rut” coming from a candidate whose party threw the American flags away at their “green” convention?

Let’s at least start by proper handling and disposing of the American flag.  Then Biden can try to make his case about higher-taxes-as-patriotic-duty.

    Didn’t you find out that that flag story was a hoax? C’mon… If you wanna attack Dems, try to use the facts…

    Plus there’s a whole in your logic: You support the war in Iraq (which comes from tax dollars). Without us paying those taxes, we wouldn’t be able to fund the war. …and that would be pretty unpatriotic, right?
