State Property isn't Public Property?
Think all those unionized, high-paid public employees with benefits and pension programs the rest of us can only dream about haven't begun to consider themselves a class apart? Read the article here from New Mexico Watchdog and watch the videos. As Watchdog reporter, Rob Nikolewski opines:
The Orwellian "This is not public property; this is state property" is an instant classic. Unfortunately, it reflects a disturbing trend among too many public officials, public servants and security personnel who seem to lose sight of whom they are supposed represent, protect and to answer to.
Ain't it the truth! The problem here is the rapidly growing number of public employees, starting with the President, Congress, the federal judiciary and in descending order, who no longer believe they work for us, the public, but for the State. And remember who the Statists are: liberals, socialists and unionized Democrats, not you and me - not the folks who are taxed to pay for their bloated salaries and benefits. As the Wikipedia article states:
Sovereignty is vested not in the people but in the national state, and that all individuals and associations exist only to enhance the power, the prestige, and the well-being of the state. The concept of statism, which is seen as synonymous with the concept of nation, and corporatism repudiates individualism and exalts the nation as an organic body headed by the Supreme Leader and nurtured by unity, force, and discipline.
I don't know about you folks, but that bit about repudiates individualism and exalts the nation... headed by the Supreme Leader says it all for me. I think I better head up to Santa Fe next week to find out if our State Capital is still a public building
