"The government is the only thing we all belong to."
Someone actually said that, put it in a video, and broadcast it at the Democratic National Convention, letting it go out over C-SPAN. Intentionally. That's horrible, sick. That's a declaration of aspirational slavery, of willingness to be owned.
Man, I'm so glad I re-registered Republican when I bought a house in '09 and moved my residence. I don't think I could take the shame of being a registered Democrat with that sort of thing being said in my name.
