Last week, Clint Eastwood at the RNC,
I would just like to say something, ladies and gentlemen.
Something that I think is very important. It is that, you, we — we own this country.
We — we own it. It is not you owning it, and not
politicians owning it. Politicians are employees of ours.
This week, at the DNC,
7:19: The chair of the Congressional Hispanic Congress, Charles Gonzales, uses the motto “e pluribus unum” — out of many, one — to mean that all the people become one, instead of the idea that the states were brought together into one nation. The idea that the people merged into a single entity — that sounds like fascism to me.
And the video, “Government Is The Only Thing We All Belong To”,
The Obama campaign says that
The “Welcome to Charlotte” video was solely produced and paid for by the Host Committee’s New American City Fund, which promotes the city of Charlotte and welcomes our guests. The intent of this video was to tell the story of this region and it is completely unaffiliated with the Obama campaign or the Democratic National Committee.
Which is pure nonsense. They played it at the DNC, they own it.
The video sums up the day,
This theme is breathtakingly wrong on several levels, but it is consistent with the Democrats scrubbing all references to God from their platform. It also brings to mind Ronald Reagan’s adage that “We are a nation that has a government—not the other way around,” from his first inaugural address.
We don’t belong to government, the government belongs to us.
