Revealing Politics asked DNC attendees and delegates in Charlotte what they thought of one of the themes of the DNC promotional video that played in the arena last night— “The government is the only thing we all belong to.” The Obama campaign is backing away from the video, but DNC attendees sure aren’t.

“Regardless of where you live, you’re gonna be owned by someone at some point. I think the American government so far has been a fair government and I don’t necessarily hate that I’m owned by them at this point.”

This is pretty funny (as in should be a skit on SNL), but it’s real so..it’s just sad “say it..I am the PROPERTY of the US (NWO) Federal Government!”. Only idiots or brainwashed people (who don’t know our history and God’s liberty believe this crap)!

If that is the case, would the government be willing to sell you to Free Republic? How much are they asking?

sad that this is not parody.

Parody writers must be the saddest of all.

“Regardless of where you live, you’re gonna be owned by someone at some point.”

So they’re admitting that the government has us in slavery?

Just ... wow.

Would this be the same government that runs Amtrak?

Probably (most assuredly) milliseconds, at the least.

When time-stamping in the database, the precision is quite, um, well, precise.

In mainframes we would time things down to the second or millisecond on timestamps (old days).

With more modern databases, the precision is even finer.

So, what or who do I belong to? An imaginary entity called government...or those people who are voted into office (by the people of all things) ? I’m just so damn confused. I thought God owned me? Heck. What’s next....obama owns the White House...or does Obama think he owns God ????

My elderly German mother raised me to never fall in love with any leader nor pledge allegiance to any party.

The Government and the DNC are the same thing. The newsmedia and the DNC are the same thing.

Milliseconds? We didn't have milliseconds when I was a kid.
We measured time by pouring sand out of a hollow log, but we didn't have much sand.
By the time we found enough sand the event had usually finished. /smile

When I was a kid we had to walk through 20 feet of snow for 10 miles to get to school, fighting lions and tigers and bears all along the way, and if you were a millisecond late, they beat you!

“In Soviet Russia, you belong to government.” Yakov Smirnoff

That's precisely why US citizens who are originally from the Soviet Union and other communist countries will be voting overwhelmingly against the Democrats this November. They understand the difference between liberty and tyranny far better than the nitwits in this DNC video.

You can bet that this bliss will disappear just as soon as we boot Øbozo from office.

I believe it was Hitler who said (paraphrasing), Why should I nationalize the industries when I can nationalize the people?”

In 1862 a white Republican ended slavery and 150 years later a black Democrat has ended freedom.
