Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) has made her latest pronouncement on the evils of the Obama administration — that they are “turning our country into a nation of slaves.”

Bachmann appeared at a right-wing conference in Colorado this past weekend, the Colorado Independent reports, and in her speech Friday night she quoted from founding father John Jay: “We are determined to live free or not at all. And we are resolved that posterity shall never reproach us with having brought slaves into the world.”

Bachmann then continued, in her own words: “We will talk a little bit about what has transpired in the last 18 months and would we count what has transpired into turning our country into a nation of slaves.”
