I was a nonplussed last night when I saw the video played at the opening of the Democrats’ national convention, which actually states, “Government is the only thing we all belong to.”
That is such a foreign concept. To me Saying you belong to the government is like saying you are a subject of some monarch, or worse enslaved.
You can’t say it any better than Mitt Romney did:
“We don’t belong to government, the government belongs to us.”
It is not surprising to me that the Obama campaign is already trying to distance itself from the ill-conceived tag line by claiming it was neither an OFA nor a DNC video.
What is surprising is that Democrats actually do believe we all belong to the government. Watch the following video put together by the good folks at Revealing Politics after Caleb Bonham and Kelly Maher interviewed convention-goers about the we belong to the government tag line.
I know the Democrats are big supporters of ever more and ever bigger government, but really “we all belong to the government.” That’s just not my America.
What else should we expect from the party that brought us “you didn’t build that” and the Charlotte convention motto “we make it possible?”
