The Liberal Mind, Part I: Harry Reid Blurs The Line Between "Voluntary" & "Coercive"

I really thought he would go with the Rousseaunian General Will approach and claim that the American system is a representative democracy and, as such, the government's taxation is sanctioned by the populace and that tacit consent is given to the expropriation of private resources for the public coffer by the citizens' choices to remain in the country.

But, I liked his approach better since it's just so very much stupider. His complete disconnect from reality is astounding. The interviewer was pretty weak though. The issue could have been pushed so much further than it was but it still makes for some satisfying shadenfreude.
