Its patriotic to pay your taxes!!!!!

The Utopian wealth distribution of the current 'golden calf' administration in Washington, argues that it is 'patriotic' for the 'wealthy' to pay their taxes. The question that I have is....
Is it 'patriotic' for just the wealthy to pay their taxes? Or is it 'patriotic' for everyone to pay taxes?

-Glenzo, 2009-
It appears as if some of the Obamessiah's cabinet appointees were not very 'patriotic' since they did not pay their taxes. But I suppose that they are tireless good intentioned public servants so we can overlook their cheating on taxes. Lots of issues about these 'unpatriotic' Democrats?

But, also, apparently, 38% of all American taxpayers pay negative or no Federal income taxes....
About 38 percent of households have zero or negative income tax liability, but they pay other federal taxes.

Visually, its like this where the top 50% pay almost all of the income taxes....

Are poor people 'unpatriotic' since they do not pay income taxes?

More visuals here.

Of course, they pay Social Security taxes, but these are not considered income taxes since Social Security is something completely different. If we think that paying into Social Security is taxes, then maybe we could also claim that putting money into an IRA or into a 401K is also 'paying taxes'? So is Social Security REALLY government taxes or not? If it is taxes, then what is Social Security? What SS is besides just one gigantic Ponzi scheme still eludes me.

So the question is.... Since poor people pay little or no income taxes, are they 'unpatriotic'? Maybe, in fact, according to VP Joe "The Bloviator" Biden, they must be.

We had a cause. Apparently I was expendable then for the cause.
