What's patriotic about paying taxes?

Handing your hard-earned money to some organized-crime syndicate called "the government" is patriotic? Really?

OK, here's a clue: patriotism means "devotion to one's country." Note, that says "country," not "government." They're not the same thing. A country can survive the collapse of a government, the creation of a new government, or (we can hope) the total abolition of government.

Of course, some people who have never held a real job -- a non-parasitic one outside the government -- might not understand that. Oh, that's right, Biden has worked his entire adult life in one government job or another, hasn't he?

Hmmm. Patriotism actually might actually call for starving a parasite that's feeding off the country, don't you think? You might do that by ... not paying taxes ...
