You don’t own that…

In about a million words of commentary, we’ve noticed no one else is saying directly that the first-term belligerence of “You didn’t build that [business you have]” translates into a second-term policy of “We’re going to take that.”   Left unchecked, the Obama administration will steal anything worth having on behalf of its political allies.

We bring up “You didn’t build that” long after everyone else has had their shot at it, to note that the underlying attitude, a mortal threat to American liberty, is far from unique to the current chief executive.

It is pervasive among today’s Democrats. You needn’t wander far from home in search of examples.

Madison’s Liberal Capital Times describes the primary contest to succeed uber-liberal Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin as a “Race to the Left,” as two contending state lawmakers’ battle over which is more unfriendly to private sector business.

Local judges abuse their powers to block any effort at curbing election fraud before November, when the whole country’s fate might depend on who wins Wisconsin.

Assembly Democrats propose to push the state Judicial Commission even farther into the tank for the Left by transferring the governor’s appointment authority to the Government “Accountability” Board!

California municipalities propose to use eminent domain to seize private property under troubled mortgages.

And New York Senator Chuck Schumer proposes restricting the First Amendment to stifle political speech critical of the Left.

From top to bottom, Democrats are intent on taking what they want, making elections, the judiciary, private property and free speech rights a mockery, and expecting everyone else to shut up about it.
