Members of the GOP can’t seem to get enough of using slavery to compare and contrast everything under the sun. Rep. Tim Walberg is the latest Republican to use slavery in an attempt to describe something in America. We can now add spare time and elective entertainment to the list of things that Republicans have compared slavery to. This list includes and is not be limited to: union dues, Obamacare, food stamps and Social Security. Walberg said:

Powerful, tragic, real words. Does that bring to mind any other great nation in your frame of reference?

…Just to jog your thoughts about that possible other nation that this could be a reference to: Slaves to materialism. Slaves to violence. Slaves to pornography. Slaves to debt. Slaves to sexual perversion. Slaves to gluttony. Slaves to drugs and drunkenness. Slaves to pleasure. Slaves to recreation. Slaves to sports. Slaves to selfishness. Slaves to laziness. Slaves to humanism. Slaves to government.

Behold, we are slaves today, and as to the land which you gave to our fathers to eat of its fruit and its bounty, behold we, Americans, are slaves in it.
