Why the end of the republic is at hand

From The Weekly Standard via Mary Katherine Ham talking about Congressman Jim Moran (D-VA) on the "simplistic notion" that people who earned money have the right to keep it:

Moran always manages to stick a foot in his mouth shortly before elections, but it makes little difference, as he's running in the heavily blue Northern Virginia 8th District. In 2006, he proclaimed that, “When I become chairman [of a House appropriations subcommittee], I'm going to earmark the sh** out of it.”

He won 66-31 percent.

This time around, he reveals to us his very frank feelings about redistribution of wealth, which he feels has been impeded by simplistic notions such as right to property. This is the kind of Democrat Obama the Redistributionist will have obliging him in Congress, if elected:

And who pray tell who votes for people like this? The very same people who vote for Barack Obama. And this voter tells us why:

Again, the final end of the experiment called America. Alexis de Tocqueville was right.

To wit:

"A democratic government is the only one in which those who vote for a tax can escape the obligation to pay it." (which why we were constructed as a constitutional republic, not a democracy).

"Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom. "

"The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public's money."

But, that being said, he also told us why it took from the 1820 until now to accomplish this:"The dignity of man is not shattered in a single blow, but slowly softened, bent, and eventually neutered. Men are seldom forced to act, but are constantly restrained from acting. Such power does not destroy outright, but prevents genuine existence. It does not tyrannize immediately, but it dampens, weakens, and ultimately suffocates, until the entire population is reduced to nothing better than a flock of timid, uninspired animals, of which the government is shepherd."
