How Liberalism resembles the Godfather movies

In the Godfather movies, the young Vito Corleone starts out with a friendly pitch: 'you do me a favor and I do you a favor.' After a time, however, he progresses to telling people that either they do what he wants or he'll blow their brains out.

Liberalism has proceeded along a similar path.  It started out promising to help the sick or the elderly or the unemployed.  After a while, liberalism started to look like this:
On orders from Pres. Clinton, Elian González is captured in a pre-dawn raid, April 22, 2000, for his forcible return to Fidel Castro.

Or like this:
Under pressure from the Obama administration, Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies capture Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, a parolee and the alleged inconvenient filmmaker, during a midnight raid on his home.

Today, we learn that General Motors will not be allowed to refuse Obama's continued 'help':

Francis Ford Coppola described the mafia in his movie as a "metaphor" for "capitalism."  Under capitalism (free enterprise), however, and unlike under liberalism, all transactions are voluntary.
