Joe Biden: Confused about Patriotism

I thought patriotism was all about loving your country, standing up for it, and willing to die to defend it.

Well, Joe Biden has shown me the error of my ways - the only true patriots are the ones who want to
pay higher taxes:

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.

Amazing how liberals can twist every definition, even those most sanctified, into something cheap and dirty if it helps further their agenda.

And that "take money" line...kind of gives away the true thought process here, doesn't it?

Patriotic? To "take"?
