Well put!

Obama isn't just trying to expand entitlements...he's trying to stamp out individualism.

And I think (well, hope) his effort will eventually bring to himself the wrath of America individuals the way Morsi has earned the wrath of non-MB Egyptians.

I’m not optimistic about Americans finally coming to the realization of the danger “O” and his followers really pose to individuality.

• Individuality is and has always been a rare commodity.
• Individuals are not socially ‘convenient’ because they question, doubt, challenge, etc.
• Individuals NEVER summarily accept anything
• Individuals can be counted on to suspect flaws and clandestine motives in established views
• Individuals are difficult to convince or convert without hard logic and intellectual accountability
• Individuals are by nature cynical

All this and more has traditionally identified Americans in their rugged pragmatism.

I am certain, that it’s the characteristic without which America wouldn’t have become America.

Of course true individuals are ‘inconvenient’ and of course, the establishment in this country (increasingly Socialist) does NOT encourage individualism. Schools, the MSM, public figures of every stripe have been consistently and relentlessly assaulting this most distinctive American characteristic for decades. They have all but completely demonized ‘individuality’ as it is properly understood.

I have been convinced for a very long time that the Liberal plan is and has always been, to stamp out ‘individualism’. Their success is almost guaranteed, because true ‘individuality’ is NOT the easy path in life and is never expedient. It is NOT a personal whim to be picked up then abandoned (like a fashion going in and out of style) when the going gets rough... and the path WILL always be rough for true individuals.

It’s funny, you can meet a total stranger at a party or somewhere and know instantly you are talking to an individual....it’s like a secret club. You know one another instantly and it’s as if: ‘Hi...it’s great to meet you, you kept the faith, too!!’
