A whole lot of Americans, way too many, find President Obama’s arguments compelling. It’s the old security versus liberty meme. Too many Americans want government to protect them from life’s risks, but what is Obama really offering? He’s offering to share the pie evenly, but what he doesn’t say is it’s going to be an ever shrinking pie. It’s not like this hasn’t been tried in the past. It has, and it failed miserably. The only ones who truly prospered under such a system were the leaders, and even they had far less than they might have had in a free market system.
Yes. President Obama offers what he can’t really deliver. Nonetheless, people on the dole don’t really care about liberty. All they want to know is who is going to deliver the freebies.
