Remember Free Men?

We struggle today with a very contentious citizenry.

The liberals have choose to label the conservative angst as rabble rousing and racist and rude and other talking points. On The White House face Book some go so far as accusing Conservatives as being a security risk. I guess we need to be shut up real quickly.

Others lament that such uneducated public trash can actually vote, and how horrible that is. More talking points accuse the republicans of being the party of no and obstructionists. The liberals propose they have tried to compromise and Republicans wont take their hand.

All of this contention ignores the basic issue.

Does health Care reform and other programs like Cap and trade and Card check change the fundamental character of the United States of America.

Does the majority of Citizens actually believe more socialism is the right future for the USA?

Are more entitlements really a sign of a charitable and caring society or an oppressive large government?

Can men really be free if government dictates 90% of their life and controls 90% of their wealth?

Conservatives believe that these new entitlements push our government over the line and will make it an oppressive and stifling burden to individual freedoms and exceptional ism.

It is nonsense to argue "Well you like Social Security don't you?" We are talking about degrees and how much individualism we are willing to endure. Because a masochist edures some minor cuts is no indication that he wants his head decapitated.

So does Obama's agenda take us away from the American definition of independence of free men?

Conservatives believe this is so. We believe it is an assault on our ideals and the premise this country was founded on.

We do not believe Socialism and Communism is a fertile ground for individual freedoms.

Obama wants to buy your freedom with promises he cant keep. The middle class will not be enriched, we will all wear the cloak of suppression and mediocrity, if we survive economically at all.
