Government steals from us?
Quote :House Speaker John Boehner said he favors pushing for more spending cuts instead of new revenues to get the federal budget under control.
"You're talking about how much — you're asking a question, how much more money do we want to steal from the American people to fund more government? I'm for no more," he said.
From who? Us? Who's "us." The American people?
If they are "we" and we are "us" we are not them. They don't steal from themselves, do they?
Wait a second, he did said "We." Who is "we?" He's clearly indicating he's part of a group, but then refers to that group as "the goverment." How does that work?
I think I got it...
I am "we?" Ok, for everyone reading this, I demand 20 Federal Reserve Notes payable immediately. If you resist, I guess I'll have to get violent. Because, hey, if stealing is ok...and theft is a form of violence...than who's to say I shouldn't just escalate it a bit to get what I want? I mean, for real.
If I'm "we" I should have all the same powers.
Wait, I cannot be "we." I don't chose to go war, sell off future generations to banks, put people in jail, etc. I don't act like I own other people. What, is "we" like a big, happy family? Like I'm in the same family as the Plutocrats? I don't think so. Clearly I cannot be "we."
Are you with We or US?
Pretty amazing to hear a high-ranking public official actually say this. A sure sign of progress in understanding how it's simply not possible to have a Government.
