Congressman Reminds The Peasants, It's Not Our Money

Rep. Joe Knollenberg, a (cough) Republican from Michigan really gets to the heart of basic economic struggle that's going on in this country. Does money belong to the government or the taxpayers? Knollenberg's stand seems to be that any money we as American individuals possess is only because the government allows us to have it, and whatever the government decides it needs, they have the right to take it. And you know what, that's pretty much the thinking of everyone in Washington save a select few. I'm no Karl Rove, but seems like this could be a huge jumping off point for the "rebranded" Republican Party.
