You’re getting sleepy, very very sleepy. Listen up, hear me now and obey: You have the right to give up your private property for the sake of others. You have a right to a shabby home, poor health care and a mediocre job, as the government sees fit. You must become part of the collective, the village. You must worship the god of statism.
You are a selfish, unprincipled, capitalist/individualist. You cannot have more than anyone else; other more deserving people are entitled to the fruits of your labor. You need welfare, food stamps and Obama phones to survive and thrive. You are incapable of making decisions on your own. You are a savage neanderthal.
We know better than you, because we have an Ivy League education. You will not question anything your government does. They are looking out for you. They love you, man.
Yea, though you walk through the shadow of the valley of death, ye shall not fear your government; only white privileged, racists, conservatives. Let the government be your lord and master. Let them tell you who to like and who to hate. Vote for progressives (republicans and democrats) and ye shall receive your just rights You will become a progressive American, or else. That is all.

(Finger snap) OK, you can wake up. The country is toast, but you feel so much better now, don’t you?
