In any redistributive state, the government has to be the focal point of both public and private life. We saw it in Soviet Russia, and we’ve seen strains of it here in America – particularly with the recent Democratic pushback against the fact that inalienable human rights do (and must ) come from “God and nature,” rather than from government. That’s brazen. It’s not shocking, but it’s certainly eye-opening. Update : Mitt Romney responds via Twitter: We don’t belong to government, the government belongs to us. — Mitt Romney (@MittRomney) September 4, 2012 Tags: DNC , socialism COMMENTS LOGIN TO COMMENT  |  REGISTER TODAY ADVERTISEMENT REDSTATE MEMBER DIARIES RECOMMENDED ALL #RSRH See New Mexico Center for Energy Policy Energy Expert Daniel Fine”Shale Gas Wars: From Pennsylvania By: shale_oil_man ( Diary )   The Public Stoning of Akin…A Foolish Strategy By: westcoastpatriette ( Diary )   “Mischief” Idea for Charlotte—do they have electronic billboards there?
