Right Thinking From The Left Coast
The Government is merely a servant -- merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them. - Mark Twain

The Wicked Witch of Washington lets the truth out

You know how some people say that “Liberals” and Democrats want to control every aspect of your life? And often when you hear that you roll your eyes a little, because after all it does sound a lot like saying that the Jews run the banks on behalf of the Illuminati. It just seems so out of whack that it’s easy to discount the idea that any organized political party would want to control everything about your life. And then you hear the Speaker of the House say this:

In answering a question from a student about how Pelosi was going to get Americans to cut back on their carbon emissions, the leading Democratic lawmaker said it was important to educate children on how to conserve energy and for citizens to build more environmentally friendly homes.

“We have so much room for improvement,” she said. “Every aspect of our lives must be subjected to an inventory ... of how we are taking responsibility.”

THE. HELL?

Let’s break it down a little. In order for a politician at her level to say a thing out loud, a large number of people had to have input. Her staff, the lobbyists that work to persuade her staff, the activists that tirelessly work for organizations that hire the lobbyists, etc. This is not a sentiment that sprang wholly formed from the mind of Nancy Pelosi. This is not just one politician saying something crazy one time.  It’s a sentiment that has been spoken before by many, many Democrats that have actual power over our lives. In short, it’s not new for the Democrats. It’s business as usual. Every “crisis” we face requires that some aspect of our decision-making be given over to government. Specifically the Federal government.

Anyone here, even those of you on the left, do any of you think that government should be this intimately involved not just in your daily life, but in what decisions you make within that life? Or worse, that they should be allowed to take away the ability to even make a decision in the first place? When Nancy Pelosi says “Every aspect of our lives must be subjected to an inventory” do you trust her to be honorable and do only what is actually best for you and your family?

Liberty in this country is dying the death of a thousand cuts. How many times do these scum-sucking pieces of garbage have to slice you before you say “ENOUGH?”
