Nancy Pelosi at college conference: President Obama has signed many ‘expansions of freedom’ into law
Campus Reform ^

Posted on 07/31/2012 1:42:00 PM PDT by oliverdarcy

Former Speaker of the House and current Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told an audience of more than 600 college students last week that President Obama has signed many “expansions of freedom” into law since he took office in 2008.

Pelosi, speaking at a youth conference hosted by the George Soros funded Campus Progress, said the President’s work with health care best illustrates his agenda to increase civil liberties for American citizens.

“Central to all is the Affordable Care Act, which we think is about life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” said Pelosi. “A healthier life, for liberty, to pursue your happiness.”

At the conference, Pelosi also argued that America’s founding fathers risked their lives to “create a democracy” where “the voice and the vote and the many determining the outcome of elections.”

forcing Americans to buy what they cannot afford and might not need is now a “civil liberty”?

You are born free. The State cannot award you that, or anything better than that

What hollows out your freedom? The Law, hundreds of rules that restrict, vandalise and ruin personal and commercial freedoms. The Law is the ratchet of the State, it has always been used as a vehicle of oppression and deranged anger, never a vehicle for enhancing anyones freedom

The Law does not protect you or prevent anything. It oppresses you. Period.

Not just a “civil liberty”, but an “expansion of freedom”.

Don’t know if this country can stand many more “civil liberties” or “expansions of freedom”.

took office in 2008?

She is not playing with a full deck. I believe he took office in January 2009. She needs to take some pills and lie down.

I think I have finally figured them out. For them, the definition of Freedom is “The ease with which the government can interfere in your life.” It is the only thing that makes sense. Tyranny would then be the ability of a citizen to say “No” to the government.

She sites 0bamacare (which will kill you), and nothing else. Pelosi then states the U.S. is a democracy.

Poor thing. I really do think it's the botox. Darn stuff has rattled her brain.

“kill more babies” = “expanded freedoms”

It’s hard to understand liberals with these translations....

Once again the Dems are using 1984 as an instruction manual:
Even the literature of the Party will change. Even the slogans will change. How could you have a slogan like "freedom is slavery" when the concept of freedom has been abolished?

Only God can "expand" freedom, Nancy. A president should only work to make sure his nation deserves freedom.

I think she meant to say “expansion of taxes”. 0bamacare alone expands all kinds of government power.

WTF?

Freedom is at full expansion at birth. It's only government which limits it from that point.

What an idiot Pelosi is! Why doesn't the media rip her for being such an a$$?

This is what she meant to say.

http://www.akdart.com/lib12.html

Pelosi: Obamacare Allows You to Quit Your Job and Become ‘Whatever’. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday [3/22/2012] that Obamacare facilitates the type of “liberation” that the “Founders had in mind” because it allows you to quit your job and become a “photographer,” a “writer,” a “musician” — or “whatever.” “As you hear from these stories, this is a liberation,” Pelosi said at a Capitol Hill news conference Thursday. “This is what our founders had in mind — ever expanding opportunity for people.”

Yeah, drop out and become a “whatever”. I don’t think she meant taxpayers though, just free-spirited Democrats.

Whatever.
