While liberals want you to believe they are all about democracy and freedom and the government being about the will of the people and other such empty notions, every once and a while one of them slips up and gives you a peek behind the curtain so you can see the real “wizard” pulling the levers and switches.
Liberalism is, at its root, about using the government to force Americans into the collective, and if they won’t go quietly, then they take the tyranny and turn it up to 11.
For example, the governor of North Carolina suggested that it might be necessary to cancel the 2012 elections so the government could focus on jobs, also known as the continued redistribution of the property of private citizens:
“I think we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years and just tell them we won’t hold it against them, whatever decisions they make, to just let them help this country recover,” Perdue said at a rotary club event in Cary, N.C., according to the Raleigh News & Observer. “I really hope that someone can agree with me on that.”
The initial spin was it was a joke, because, the suspension of freedom is funny, or something. But after they claimed it as a failed attempt at humor (where have I heard that before), this audio surfaced showing not only was it delivered seriously, but if it were a joke, it was not received as one:
Following Perdue’s admission of her desire for a curbing of your voting rights, another leftist, this time a former member of the Obama administration, comes out and says that maybe what American needs right now is a little less democracy:
To solve the serious problems facing our country, we need to minimize the harm from legislative inertia by relying more on automatic policies and depoliticized commissions for certain policy decisions. In other words, radical as it sounds, we need to counter the gridlock of our political institutions by making them a bit less democratic.
Doesn’t that sound lovely? I’m sure I’m taking it out of context, or it’s a joke.
Rather than have deliberation or, what’s that word the president keeps using, compromise, what we need is an autocratic powerful central government handing down decisions their subjects have to implement, or else.
Meanwhile, the Tea Party is still being maligned as a terrorist organization and Sarah Palin is considered dangerous.
The liberal movement isn’t about increasing liberties, but about increasing government power to advance the collectivist dream. When the people dared to exercise their right to influence the debate in Washington, the liberals reaction is to suspend freedom and sally forth.
