Government Is "God" To The Left

Democrats need a Father figure to look up to - to provide for their needs - to ease their fears and comfort them... A Fatherly figure who is omnipresent and promises to watch over them.  A Fatherly figure to guide their decisions - to teach them morals.  An omnipotent High Authority

Like God. 

“A government big enough to give you everything you need, is a government big enough to take away everything you have.”  - Gerald Ford

"The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away. Blessed be the name of the LORD."
- Job 1:21

No wonder so many Democrats turn to Government for salvation.  Government becomes the ideal surrogate for (a) God.

And the bonus is, nobody can claim that the Government doesn't exist.  We absolutely know He exists. We're reminded of this fact each and every April 15th.   Angry

The US is the most religious of all the Western countries and also the most rightist. The people on this forum are a pretty good indication of whether it's the leftist or the rightist who are depending on their imaginary sky fairy.

You fukked up when you compared government to the god.

You worship the government, Don_G.  As do many other Leftists.

My comparison is quite valid.

The Governments are the New Gods.
The Corporations the New Nobility and Royalty.

The Politicians the Priests.

I would prefer the Faith in an Infinite/Infinitesimal creator of the finite Sky Faery.  Than something a Finite mind can use reason to cope with.

Government is God to the Left? That's ridiculous.

The government exists.

I see it as faith in a "socialist system" rather than in government, and see "socialist" governments as the new organized religions of Believers in Socialism.

He turned out to be just another charismatic cult leader, not even a minor Prophet of Socialism. Roll Eyes

Don, let Canada start taking in as many poor immigrants as the U.S. does and you will see religiosity rise in your country.

Billie, Obama was elected by way of media inspired affirmative action.  He would have never gotten their attention, adoration, and support if he was a white dude.  They even threw Hillary under the bus for him.
