Obama's message to Americans: we own you

"core message [of Obama's recent speech], combined with other red-light indicators of a radically leftist political philosophy which includes wealth redistribution, is the message of the almighty and sovereign State:

"We own you."

Without the State, you are nothing.  All your abilities, your intellect, your individuality, your work, your dreams, and the fruits of your labor would never happen without the federal government.  Where would you be without us?  We allowed you, along with the rest of the amorphous and indistinguishable masses constituting the collective, to thrive.

You owe everything to the State.

What you eat, where you sleep, and how you earn your daily bread are because of the State's munificence.  Everything is a gift to you from the State, in which you live and move and have your being.

Do you really think you as a mere individual built and therefore own your business?  Do you think you are entitled to "your" profits?  We built the infrastructure that supports your endeavor; therefore, we can tax you as we please.  Your initiative and hard work are merely part of the entire labor pool, a small slice of the community of others."
