Remember, back in September, when Joe Biden said that increasing taxes on the most productive members of our society was patriotic?
Well, now his running mate has done him one better, calling those who oppose higher taxes selfish.
Seems the Democrats believe the only way we can serve our country is by being forced to give an ever increasing share of our income to the government.Â And the only way we can serve others is by having the government do it for us.
How many people oppose higher taxes so they can better decide the charities to support with their disposable income?Â Given the greater alacrity of Republicans to donate to charities than Democrats, it doesn’t seem we’re entirely selfish in wanting to prevent the government from taking our money.
With the Democrats’ rhetoric on taxes, it becomes increasingly clear that they see government as the solution to all our problems.Â The more we hear them speak, the clearer it becomes how little confidence they have in the American people and the private institutions we have established not just to provide essential products and services, but also to help the less fortunate and otherwise improve our society.
