I guess I'm not patriotic

Biden says it's patriotic to take money by force from rich people and give it to other people.
In an interview on ABC's "Good Morning America," Biden said wealthier taxpayers would indeed pay more under the proposals of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama. Under his 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.

"We want to take money and put it back in the pocket of middle-class people," Biden said. Of those who would pay more, he said: "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 think he's confused about what 'patriots' are. He's the idiot of the day.

Before long he'll be wearing a red, white, and blue hat with a feather in it akin to Robin Hood.

Where do people even get the notion that it's all right to forcibly acquire part of someone else's money?

I will never understand it. I guess it's the assumption that in order for me to earn it, I had to take it from someone else, instead of the assumption that it was a voluntary transaction.

Or they just believe it's all common property. In which case I'm moving in to Warren Buffet's house.
