Democrats Deny Democracy; They Prefer Manipulation & Coercion

We are living in scary times, folks, as the Democrat commitment to a socialist oligarchy gets more ruthless by the day.

* Here's a Fox News report about Democrat Congresspersons conducting reprisals against 52 insurance companies for refusing to jump off the cliff when President Obama told them to.

* The President tried the "holier than thou" route with wacky liberal religionists like Jim Wallis yesterday, quoting Scripture out of context and for his own self-aggrandizement. As Ben Smith points out, the Prez "freights health care reform with a great deal of religious meaning, and veers into the blend of policy and faith that outraged liberals in the last administration." And though he referred to opponents of his health care debacle as "bearing false witness," emphasizes that he ended up bearing plenty of false witness himself.

* Team Obama's "pay czar" Kenneth Feinberg (his official title is, no kidding, "Special Master for Compensation") is teaming up with Congressional leaders like Barney Frank to grab more and more power to tell businessmen how much they'll be allowed to earn. Can you believe the audacity of these tinpot dictators? The Constitution, law, fairness, precedent, shame -- all mean nothing to them.
