When Liberals Become Patriotic

When there’s tax money on the table:

Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., has a status update for Facebook co-founder Eduardo Saverin: Stop attempting to dodge your taxes by renouncing your U.S. citizenship or never come to back to the U.S. again.

It used to be conventional wisdom that liberals were unpatriotic, after their performance during the Vietnam War and afterwards.  Well, we now know their idea of patriotism is: people who love to pay their taxes, especially when same liberals are in power and can spend it.

It’s a decidedly mercenary concept of love of country.  Keep it up and more people will, when confronted with “love it or leave it”, take the latter option.
