The mask slips

I love how the Left show's their commitment to freedom and democracy.  In Britain, Labour wants journalists to be licensed (and they ominously want to "build a new society") while in the United States a Lefty governor wants to suspend elections so that the Political Class can work without pesky distractions.  And just to make things clear, Mr Barack Hussein Obama's former director of the Office of Management and Budget thinks that democracy is "too much of a good thing", that "we (?) need to counter the gridlock of our political institutions by making them a bit less democratic",  "find away around" democratic institutions (especially elected representatives)" and "jettison the Civics 101 fairy tale about pure representative democracy".

Translation:  We need a tyranny, please.  How else can the Elite possibly do what needs to be done when the silly "people" keep getting in the way?

Either side of the pond, they're cut from the same cloth.

Update: I see why the governor in question is so keen to dodge the ballot box.

Update: No joke.

When Milibrand says that they won't spend more than they can afford, he most likely means they'll keep raising taxes to pay the outstanding bills on their "programs"- and then create more "programs" that will require even higher taxes to pay for them. Followed by even more programs, and taxes. It's all they know.

As for "rewarding the right people and not the wrong ones", you just know that Milibrand & Co. will be deciding which is which. And most likely be rewarding themselves first, and foremost.

The collected works of Tom Friedman are ample evidence of just how much our betters value democracy. No, the governor wasn't joking. They never really are.
