Deemed Unpatriotic To Question The Tax System & Government Spending

An Op-Ed in the 4/15/10 USA Today titled "Yes, I Love Taxes" denounces the Tea Party movement as "unpatriotic" for daring to criticize what the activists categorize as excessive taxation.

But isn't it even more unpatriotic to fornicate out of control, refuse to work, and then expect everyone else to pick up the tab for one's own debauchery?

It has been estimated that nearly 50% pay no taxes.

You can't tell me that they are that poor as a higher percentage of the population than that have cable television and an Internet service provider.

So tell me, who is the bigger subversive: the loyal citizen that dutifully pays their taxes but uses the peaceable mechanisms available to change the system or rather the deadbeat that contributes nothing but comports themselves as if the taxpayer owes them?
