Dem Rep Ellison: We’re Not Broke, Government Just Doesn’t Have Your Money Yet (VIDEO)

Progressive Rep Keith Ellison is a dengerous man


According to the powers that be, the government wants and needs more money, there isn't any questions about that, but Progressive Rep Keith Ellison has taken it a step further. He says that government isn't really broke, no, it doesn't spend too much money, its programs aren't way over budget, Obama doesn't take too many vacations, government programs aren't horribly run and inefficient, government just doesn't have your money yet.

Rep Ellison's exact quote is, "The bottom line is we’re not broke, there’s plenty of money, it’s just the government doesn’t have it. The government has a right, the government and the people of the United States have a right to run the programs of the United States." Okay, that statement is wrong in so many ways, I hardly know where to start. How about we start with the Constitution. It is a document written for the people and to limit the powers of the government, not to give them the "right" to more of your money. In Mr Ellison's view, the government could conceivably create any program it wanted to and then it could claim the right to fund that program from your earnings.

It sounds like Ellison is ignorant beyond belief about the role of the United States government, but people like Ellison are not dumb, they have an agenda. If anything he doesn't give a rip about the Constitution, it is simply a document that at this point is getting in his way from implementing his liberal, progressive, Muslim agenda. And that agenda is to redistribute the wealth of the United States as the Progressives see fit.

What the socialistically bent Mr Ellison probably doesn't grasp though is that yes, there is plenty of money available. That money has been earned by free citizens engaging in commerce and the reason people and businesses have it and government doesn't, is because people and businesses have to live within their means or they will go broke and there comes a point when no one will give them any more money. When the government goes broke, they either print more money or they take it from the people who have it. Government doesn't earn money, they take it. They don't produce anything, they take. Nowhere in the Constitution does it say the government has the right to run any program. They run any and all programs not for their rights, but on the behest of the people who elected them to keep the people, not the government secure.

Mr Ellison is not only dead wrong, his attitude and his agenda is exceptionally un-American and frankly dangerous, and it may just awaken something in the people of the United States we haven't seen for over 200 years.

Read more below from TownHall.com and then watch the video after that of Ellison's stunning statement:

It’s not a new idea, but then again liberals are not known for “new” ideas. Since the 1910’s, progressive initiatives have been little more than a string of recycled redistributive concepts, and innovative ways to reduce the private ownership of wealth. The ‘Inclusive Prosperity Act’ is the latest in a long string of “transaction tax” proposals. Essentially the act would levy a sales tax on the trading of stocks, bonds and derivatives. And while the tax might be ill-conceived, and economically damaging, it was the sales pitch for the tax that proved to be most disturbing.

“The bottom line is we’re not broke, there’s plenty of money, it’s just the government doesn’t have it,” said Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), “The government has a right, the government and the people of the United States have a right to run the programs of the United States. Health, welfare, housing – all these things.”

According to Representative Ellison, the government is not in danger of going broke; because great innovative figures such as himself can re-appropriate a 100 year old idea in an effort to take more of your money. Try to wrap your brain around this: We have an elected representative explaining that government has the “right” to any personal wealth in this nation for the sake of running programs not enumerated in any foundational document of the United States. I guess that goes to prove that most congressman know the constitution about as well as Nancy Pelosi knew the Affordable Care Act.
