Do We Belong To The Government? Is Voting Equivalent To Bullying?
I watched the first night of the Democratic National Convention and was absolutely stunned by the celebration of abortion that consumed much of the first couple of hours.
There were speeches I enjoyed, including Tammy Duckworth, Deval Patrick and Michelle Obama.
But there were two moments tonight that I found quite odd. One was this portion of a video that ran early in the evening:
The government is the only thing we all belong to? We don't belong to the government! I don't doubt that this is the governing policy of many Democrats, but is this something that people enjoy hearing?
The other thing that was weird was when Deval Patrick said:
"I will not stand by and let President Obama be bullied out of office."
Do we normally consider the act of a free people choosing their leader to be bullying?
