The Most Patriotic Thing You Can Do

According to Mark Cuban, it's to: "Bust your ass and get rich."

As he points out, profits aren't a zero sum game. Entrepreneurs and businesses create wealth while governments and charities simply transfer wealth. I may not like the guy, but I generally agree with a small qualifier - he goes onto say:

Get so obnoxiously rich that when that tax bill comes , your first thought will be to choke on how big a check you have to write. Your 2nd thought will be “what a great problem to have”, and your 3rd should be a recognition that in paying your taxes you are helping to support millions of Americans that are not as fortunate as you.
The people aren't supposed to work for the government, the government is supposed to work for the people, but meh, I'll take what I can get. Read the whole thing.
