The 'Progressive' Spirit Is Not New

And they said, No, but we will have a king over us.

And we shall be, also we, like all the nations, so that our king may judge us and go out before us and fight our battles.
--1 Samuel 8:19-20
We Belong to the Government
This is the philosophy of the Democratic Party. This is the way the hierarchy of the party thinks. Democrats really believe in government – the bigger the better.

But, more importantly, they believe the people are subjects of government. The government doesn’t belong to the people, rather we belong to the government.

This, of course, is quite at odds with the kind of government our Founding Fathers conceived for America – a government, as Abraham Lincoln explained, “of the people, by the people and for the people.” In America, from the very beginning, the difference would be that we don’t belong to the government, it belongs to us.

Democrats don’t get that concept. They want America to renounce its unique experiment in liberty and go the way of the rest of the world.
