    While I certainly enjoyed not paying tax on all of my online purchases over the years I also knew it was wrong.  I was avoiding paying my fare share and hurting my local community and state.  

    We are the smart ones remember?  

    We KNOW that some taxes are necessary.

    We KNOW that sales taxes pay teachers, police and firemen.

    We KNOW that its our duty to pay, not avoid through loophole, our fair share.

    Now what Democrats need to do is close the loopholes that favor the rich.  Close the Romney Loophole that let him put millions in his IRA.  Close the loophole that lets hedge fund managers pay 15% on income.  Close the loophole that lets private jets operate at public expense.

    It is well that war is so terrible -- lest we should grow too fond of it. Robert E. Lee
