The city of Charlotte's motto for the Democratic convention is, "We Make It Possible." As a local affiliate reports:

Charlotte in 2012, the non-partisan convention host committee, designed this campaign to help the city win as the eyes of the world are watching.

"We make it possible" signs will be everywhere with different messages featuring real people and places in the community.

And here's that logo:

The "We Make It Possible" pitch, however, signals the promotion of a kind of collectivist, nanny state attitude that Democrats had seemed to soften ever since getting knocked after President Obama uttered the "you didn't build that" line.

Perhaps, in Charlotte, the Democrats will double down on the "you didn't build that" idea--an idea that seemed to embolden the Republicans last week at their convention in Tampa.
