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.
Keep talkin’ libs......keep talkin’
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.
The fact that God created everyone and one day we will all be accountable to Him is the only thing we have in common!
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.
Very nicely done.
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.
I was banned from Free Republic for one day, during my 14 years registered here.
It happened when I made and "insensitive" comment about Ted's impending death.
I do NOT belong to the government.
Makes an excellent bumper sticker, pin and slogan.
The Collective, It’s what the Borg belong to.
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.
George Orwell would be proud of his prescience.
...he’s probably watching.
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.
Eventually they tell the truth
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.
Black supremacy teaches the black race is the superior race and all other races are destined to be servants to the black race.
