on The Corner and you just need to post it: "Well, I don't buy any of it. This is simply warmed over, recycled, big government liberalism being inflicted on us in a time of crisis. It's not exciting or innovative and supporting it doesn't make you morally superior or more responsible. It just means you're eager to spend other peoples' money on programs and schemes that are more likely than not going to result in making the country less prosperous. I will pay my taxes — unlike Barack Obama's treasury secretary — because that's the law and the social contract. But, I don't have to celebrate it and I don't have to enjoy it. Saying I don't want to pay higher taxes for bigger government doesn't make me less patriotic, it makes me conservative and, I would argue, more reasonable."
