Of course Governor Palin doesn't believe paying taxes is patriotic.
She lives in an oil producing State where the government pays dividends from its oil proceeds to its citizens. But here in the United States we cannot pump our tax money out of oil holes.
As mayor she must have collected property taxes. Is it unpatriotic for me to continue paying my property taxes here in Shorewood?
And what's going to happen when the limited oil supply of Alaska dries up? Perhaps bridge a piple line to Russia. They have plenty of oil.
If it is not patriotic to pay taxes, why are those who voted against funding the Iraq war considered to be unpatriotic?
Funding the war doesn't come from oil revenue, it comes from those of us who pay our taxes.
Should we reconsider whether paying taxes to fund the war is patriotic? That's a cute idea.
