Yes, rest assured, Romney and the GOP are already working on ads about this. Its the GOP that cut the clip and circulated it, in fact. Mitt himself evidently cant wait to get started:
People are going to follow Romneys lead and seize on the word belong but thats only half the problem. Even if Democrats had chosen a phrase that didnt connote ownership, like participate in (Obamas preferred turn of phrase when pushing this idea is doing things together), this is still a creepy, spurious justification for expanding government.
You can’t take away the Food Stamps AND the Viagra.
They omitted God. Proof God exiosts when the “tolerance’ idiots kick HIM out of their meeting, soon to be we the people’s nation...no room for THEE CREATOR? It’s not nice to anger the King of Kings.
You step into a pile of dog poop and you declare it to be a winner!
i do not belong to the government. I AM FREE!
like Clint said, they serve us.
i will not freely serve a rat.
As was said back in the day: “All you have are belong to us!”
You seem to wallow in this. I don’t. I won’t. Nor do I think the electorate will. It’s up to you how you approach this problem. Willow in doubt, or speak up and be a part of change. I’m tired of all you nay sayers out there.
Some Dems, even some Dem "journalists" must be having quite serious second-thoughts about following their "party" down the fifth-column shining path that (by some interpretations of outward appearances) points to a Chavezista takeover.
Also, these folks have children, grandchildren, 401ks and private property. At some point, they will realize that even THEY just might end up as enemies of the people for wanting success beyond a few over-promised and minimal hand-outs.
all your base are belong to us!
They kept talking about working hard to make a better life and were brandishing signs about opportunity, but they work to tax your prosperity away from you and work for equal outcomes, not equal opportunity. Their actions do not match their rhetoric.
Given Obama’s treatment of the military and little things like his rules of engagement that made the troops sitting ducks in Afghanistan, I thought their embrace of the military was about the phoniest thing I have ever witnessed.
Only in America could a bunch of freeloading, communist piggies have a bashfest bashing the people they want to subsidize their communism.
“As Yuval Levin recently explained in NRO...............
Again and again, the administration has sought to hollow out the space between the individual and the state. Its approach to the private economy has involved pursuing consolidation in key industries privileging a few major players that are to be treated essentially as public utilities, while locking out competition from smaller or newer firms. This both ensures the cooperation of the large players and makes the economy more manageable and orderly. And it leaves no one pursuing ends that are not the governments ends. This has been the essence of the administrations policies toward automakers, health insurers, banks, hospitals, and many others.”
This is a pretty good definition of fascism.
Thanks! I stand corrected!
I spent way too much time trying to dig up the original “All your base are belong to us!” freeRepublic thread form pre-1999. It is the funniest thread ever, and got me hooked on FreeRepublic.
I became a certifiable Freeper after following it. :-)
There is one thing that we all “belong” to: We are all children of God.
You seem to wallow in this. I dont. I wont. Nor do I think the electorate will. Its up to you how you approach this problem. Willow in doubt, or speak up and be a part of change. Im tired of all you nay sayers out there.
And I’m tired of you and your ilk. YOU DON’T LIKE WHAT I POST? THEN DON’T BOTHER READING IT!!! I don’t take orders from you and your ilk on what to post. Got it?
We DO NOT Belong to the government!
The damned government, as screwed up as it now is, still belongs to us!
When will the D party leadership ever learn!~?????????!
Vote them OUT! Lifelong Democrats, the D party has been taken over by extreme leftist, communist-inspired haters of America and Judeo- Christian values. It is NOT the D party of your parents or grandparents. Throw the bums out! Clean up the D party and later you can vote for it again. Right now, throw the usurpers (or Occupiers) OUT!
Afraid God comes first!
so now we all belong to the government? I tought we were free men and women and the government belonged to us, well, I have been wrong before
