Today’s quote comes from none other than our President, otherwise known as the idiot-in-cheif,
“The very core of what this country stands for is on the line — the basic promise that no matter what you look like, no matter where you come from, this is a place where you could make it if you try. The notion that we’re all in this together, that we look out for one another “
Yes this supposed to be a place where we can all make if it we try and work hard (he always seems to forget that part)…but since America is supposed to be the land of opportunity we will be giving Obama a big thumbs down in November because there is no way you can have opportunity AND his massive regulations, massive bureaucracy, massive intrusions into private and public life, and a president who demands that Congress pass a bill that trashes the Constitution. If you believe in the first part of what he says it is very, very clear that you have to vote against Obama, because what our country stands for is on line and Obama is opposed to it.
Then there is that second part, “the notion that we’re all in this together, the we look out for one another.” Okay, yes, because of economics we are all in this together, and the best way to help others is to look out for yourself and make yourself as prosperous as possible (without harming others)…and I don’t get the feeling that Obama is embracing the rationalism of laissez -faire capitalism (especially when he has the insanity of fascist socialism to always go to). And as to looking out for each other…yes at a personal, individual level we, as human beings, are concerned for those around us and enjoy helping others…but that does not mean we need to outsource humanity and compassion to the government. America is a country of individuals working with individuals…not government helping interest groups.
Obama is right this is an election where what America stands for is on the line: liberty, the pursuit of Happiness, individual rights, property rights, the power of law over the individual, the government only setting the rules and not picking the winners, opposition to tyranny, being the shinnying city on the hill that the rest of the world can look to. Does Obama stand for or support any of those?
