I'm sorry, but I just can't bring myself to chuckle along with this video from Revealing Politics. It's too depressing. The Democratic National Convention's opening video featured this perverse pearl of Statist wisdom: "The government is the only thing we all belong to." The Obama campaign quickly clarified that the video wasn't produced by them, hitting Republicans for "faux outrage." Excuse me, but political conventions are parsed out and choreographed from pillar to post by the parties, which are fully controlled by the campaigns. This clip didn't accidentally slip past the messaging gurus. It's what liberals believe. ...
I agree with Alan Keyes: "Is it really such a good idea to have schools funded by the government teach our children about liberty and self-reliance?"
