DNC: "Government is the only thing we all belong to."
Youtube ^ | 09052012 | Self

Posted on 09/05/2012 4:18:51 AM PDT by Positive

Yes, this DNC video, played during the convention, said we all belong to the government.

Out of the mouths of fools often comes what they really think.

Gee, I thought I was a citizen of the United States of America, not its government.

It is often discussed on FR that our personal freedoms have eroded to the point where we are “subjects” rather than “citizens”. Nonetheless, it is amazing the Democrats are brazen enough to broadcast their joy over their control of the American people with the hard hand of government. This is Orwell’s 1984 celebrated.

I think they focus-grouped this concept and found that it resonated.

I think the basic concept comes from one of their academic “re-framing” experts, like George Lakoff (rhymes with).

There’s a good chance it comes from Queen Slinging Bull of Harvard.

I found it interesting that the Dems kicked off DNC2012 with a tribute to the only politician with a confirmed kill in the war on women.

The DNC is all in Marxist/Socialist this cycle. We’ll see how that works out for them.

What a stupid concept.... I don’t belong the government - the government belongs to us.

Like saying we are owned by the government... that’s terrible.

And my wife is going to be pissed - she said I belong to her.

Perhaps more accurately put: "The Government is the only thing that belongs to all of us."

Actually, the DemonRats have a point.

With the passage of the Sixteenth (Income Tax) Amendment we all became sharecroppers on the government plantation.

Thanks to the safety net of services, we have been rendered virtual slaves and therefore belong to the government.

Ain't Democracy Grand!

I miss our Constitutional Republic.

Indeed we are citizens of our nation & not merely its government, but don’t worry, this quote is a huge gift to Republicans!

“Government is the only thing we all belong to”??? It’ll be flying close formation with “you didn’t build that”.

Hope Romney & Ryan begin every one of their speeches with both of those evil quotes.

It appears to me this statement is intended to cause racial divisions by implying everyone is now a “slave” to the black man.

Black supremacy teaches the black race is the superior race and all other races are destined to be servants to the black race.

That's the very response they are looking for with this statement.

This is no stupid mistake on the dems part.

What an incredible display of using ‘group think’ and peer pressure!

But, consider for a moment that this is not, and no longer is only 0bama’s platform. The very statements in the video are treasonous.

While we may fear and vote 0bama out of office, one must come to terms with the Party of Treason. This is a Party platform...we belong to the government...

They have played this just right. Really it is an amazing thing to see. From American Idol and throwing the voting to their desire to ‘feel like’ they belong to some bigger cause. A national socialist cause...

The democrats are no longer a softening or tempering party of the capitalist system. With this video they show their hand as a party of treason to Freedom.

I had a fleeting thought today...maybe McCarthy was right. What should we do with those who would take away our Freedom? Sometimes I make myself very, very sad.

Actually, We the People ARE the Government!!

No one else has the authority to "ordain and establish a Constitution for the United States of America."

We the Government can change the federal and state forms of government through constitutional amendments. Our elected and appointed representatives ("employees", as Clint noted) are simply part of our form of government. We the Government can change our representatives regularly (though not often enough!).

So I am once again a GI? Government Issued? When did that happen? But considering how government steals all my wealth by threats of force, I have sadly concluded that I am a serf to the government and there is very little I can do about it. But while they get all my money they do no get me, I belong to G*d, not the government.

Those with a theistic worldview know that we belong to our Creator, and derive our absolute rights from our Creator.

The left are anti-theists, not just a-theists.
The gov’t is their “god substitute”, and the people derive their rights from the arbitrary proclamations of those in power in the government.

Biden was just testing the message when he said “They want to put y’all in chains”. The Democrats think all Americans are slaves chained to the public plow. Slavery is their idea of Freedom.

Ah, good ole black liberation theology from the maggot infested mouth of Rev. Wright.

For such propaganda to take hold, a whole lot of history will have to be re-written but don’t worry the public school system has their back and will keep pumping out brainwashed kids for generations who actually believe this crap.

Just like the 1001 inventions from Is-Slime there is no limit to the lies the left and the losers of life’s lottery will use to hide their inferior views.

I understand where you are coming from. But if the draft were in force and I was of age and got drafted — country comes before family.

You have no freedoms without the military protecting our country.

That whole “draft” thing didn’t come to my mind, because I’m so far out of eligibility.

However, IIRC, even during draft times, if the family lacked a father, they provided an exemption for a son to take care of the family. Also, the whole point of “Saving Private Ryan” was that he was the last surviving son of that family.
