Posted on 03/30/2012 6:13:29 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
President Obama today delivered an impassioned attack on what he called Republicans cramped narrow conception of liberty, during a fiery speech at a campaign fundraiser in Vermont.
Before an electrified crowd of 4500 his largest of the campaign to date Obama framed the 2012 campaign as a stark choice between two diametrically opposed political and economic philosophies.
Their philosophy is simple: youre on your own, Obama said of the GOP.
Youre on your own if youre out of work, cant find a job. Tough luck youre on your own. You dont have health care: Thats your problem. Youre on your own. If youre born into poverty, lift yourself up with your own bootstraps, even if you dont have boots. Youre on your own. They believe thats how America is advanced, he said.
Thats the cramped narrow conception they have of liberty, and they are wrong, he said. They are wrong.

thegatewaypundit sure has a different headline than this one...
says Obama went off on some kind of socialist rant.
It seems he has liberty and dependency mixed up!
Well, the past 3 years with “The government helping you economics” have been pretty lousy for me. Please let me be on my own again. And please stop making me support the freeloaders.
Mr. Obama has never understood that the creation of real wealth has the highest correlation with the establishment of social justice. Productive capitalism is the greatest generator of wealth. The best a well managed government can do is perhaps ameliorate very poor outcomes for unfortunate individuals. It cannot generate the wealth itself.
Most Liberals do.
Before I had insurance, office visits were $60 at the local Urgent Care clinic, where I was greeted by a nurse, seen by my doctor, and they were open whenever I cared to visit. Appointments could be arranged easily.
I had an HMO - I was given a short list of doctors to choose from, where I had to make appointments weeks in advance, was kept waiting for an hour or more each time, and was ‘treated’ by a physician’s assistant. Office visits ran $60.
Now I have health insurance, doctor’s visits are $60 at the Urgent Care clinic, I can go in on Sundays, never have had to wait more than 5 minutes, and always see my doctor. Monthly savings are $257, which pays for an awful lot of doctor’s visits, but the savings to my time are enormous.
The idea of being stuck in a national HMO plan is absolutely awful to me. The idea of the federal government dictating what benefits I’m to have is even worse.
You’re right, kenyan. And, we could afford to be on our own if the government wasn’t raping us of 30% of OUR earnings. Pound sand.
Hey, Obama. I think it’s about time... YOU be ‘on your own’!
Tell the last rich person we eat that I like ketchup. /0bama voter.
Mind your own damn business, Barack, I like being “on my own”!
I want the government and YOU out of my life forever!
You don’t get to STEAL what I work for and give it to some lazy ass deadbeats for sitting on their asses (and there are MILLIONS of them)!
The Kenyan pimping the nanny state again. That crap sure gets old.
What was Reagan’s line—something like:
The most dreaded words you can hear are, “I’m from the government and I’m here to help.”
Actually, we’ve had 50 years of the Great Society and how’s that working out for us?
...just a reminder from 2008....
Well, the “SPend Yourself Inot Oblivion” Economics ain’t working,Zero!
He wants us to trade our freedom for the security he offers, as if we don’t know that trade-off gets us neither when it’s done. It’s a con.
Better on my own than with his jackboot on my neck.
It feels now like you can't breathe in this country without answering to some bureaucracy, you're tracked from womb to tomb. Unless you're an illegal alien, not a citizen.
