"Government is the only thing we all belong to."

Once upon a time, feudal lords bearing titles like "King", "Duke", or "Baron" owned all the land, and even owned the people who lived on it.

Over time, various political movements, economic realities, and armed rebellions led us to a state of greater freedom, and private ownership of property.

No more, the rules have changed. Once again, according to the Democratic Party, you belong to the government:

These people are comfortable with this sort of language. So comfortable, in fact, they can't imagine that anyone would be uncomfortable with it.

This is our last chance to defeat this dangerous worldview. If President Obama is re-elected, this mindset will become so lodged in our popular culture and our legal structure that it will take generations to reverse.

The rules have changed. What will you do, in the two months remaining, to defeat the party that thinks you "belong to" government? Don't tell me; go do it!
