You can usually tell what a Democrat REALLY thinks . . .

because that’s what he’s accusing Republicans of . . .

Latest example:

Texas Democrat Bill White, running for Governor, who says:[*1]

“We need a governor who’s a servant, as opposed to Rick Perry, who wants to be treated as master.”

Translation: “I, as a selfless and right-thinking Democrat, pure and clean as the wind-driven snow, basking in the wisdom and rightness of my own thoughts and whims (and it is the service of those thoughts and whims to which I refer as ‘service’), shall be your lord and master, and you’ll gladly give to me that crown because I’m so much smarter than you are. Vote for me, peasants! You’ve done it so often before! Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.”

Democrat politicians and “progressives” refer to those whom they want the political approval of as: “My People.” (Usually in the possessive sense, secondarily in the tribal self-identification sense, when they think they can get away with it–viz. Sherrod, Shirley.)

Liberty-lovers, constitutionalists, and an increasing number of Republican politicians–the ones who want to keep winning elections, anyway–refer to those whom they want the votes of as: “We, The People.” Not the royal “we,” but an expansive, inclusive “we.”

Those two worldviews are fundamentally incompatible. One is Dark Age feudalism–a small minded, cynical tribalism that seeks to divide people and set them one against the other. The other is Enlightenment-age liberalism which seeks to unite all of humanity under one constant and certain rule of law.

This is THE issue of the 2010 and 2012 elections in the United States.

The Dark Age, or the Enlightenment.

Time to choose.
