    Nope. It's patriotic to support those aspects of the government that comply with the Constitution, and that means paying taxes to support those. Since 90% of government spending is in violation of the Constitution, it's not unpatriotic to not want to pay taxes.

    See? That's the difference between patriots, who know what their country is supposed to stand for, and the whiners, who claim it's patriotic to pay taxes merely because some plagiaristic fool they voted for told them it was.

    IMO your point would be better served by arguing against those programs you dislike than by arguing against the level of taxation.
    Yeah, that's democracy all righty.

    Fortunately, the United States is a Constitutional republic, not a democracy, and the public is only allowed, by that Constitution, to spend federal tax dollars on issues specifically defined in Article 1, Section 8 of that Constitution, and almost everything the socialist whiny left wants is covered by the Tenth Amendment, not Article 1, Section 8.

    The Supreme Court has stated otherwise. And given the precedent and the fact that an enormous amount of our government is built around that decision, it is highly unlikely that it will ever be reversed. So get used to it.
