American companies that move their headquarters offshore to avoid paying taxes will be the target of a new television advertisement that questions their patriotism during a time when U.S. soldiers are fighting in Iraq…”The message is about shared sacrifice,” said columnist and author Arianna Huffington, one of the founders of The Bermuda Project. “They’re really cheating America, and they’re cheating every American taxpayer who plays by the rules.” [Associated Press, 4/9/03]

Or is it America–and particularly those like Huffington who seek unearned benefits from unwilling victims–that is cheating them? America is not about “shared sacrifice”–it is about the repudiation of sacrifice, and of those who demand sacrifices. In its founding principles, America spits on Arianna Huffington and all she stands for.
