Keith Ellison Confirms: All of Our Money Belongs to Bureaucrats

Leave it to our first Muslim congresscritter, Nation of Islam alumnus Keith Ellison (D-MN), to explain why our liberal rulers won’t even consider slowing down the rate of growth of wasteful government spending in the face of the $17 trillion debt they have run up in our names:

“The bottom line is we’re not broke, there’s plenty of money, it’s just the government doesn’t have it.”

Who does have it? We do, because it’s ours. Or is it?

Ellison continues:

“The government has a right, the government and the people of the United States have a right to run the programs of the United States. Health, welfare, housing — all these things.”

The government has the right to spend your money. So long as the shirt has not been looted off the back of every American everywhere, Ellison et al. still have resources, so the spree can continue.

There is no essential moral or ideological difference between a Democrat and a communist. Both will rob you into poverty and then enslave you. The difference is tactical. The Ellisons and Obamas take a more incremental approach than the Lenins and Stalins, because the American public still has a vestigial tradition of liberty and is heavily armed.

Instead of the Koran, they should have used the Communist Manifesto.
