Unlike any other nation, America’s founding was based entirely on the principles of individual freedom, individual responsibility, self reliance and individual achievement; in short, exceptionalism. It is the very core of the American experience and exceptionalism is the engine which drives it and it’s people. Ours is the most successful nation in history because it is the only nation in history to be based on tenets which are consistent with human nature.
You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. In order for one person to receive something without having worked for it, another person worked for, without receiving. The government cannot and has never given to anyone that which the government has not first taken from somebody else; at gunpoint. When policies such as these are advanced unfettered, the time will come when half the people get the idea that they do not have to work, because the other half is going to take care of them. Consequently, the other half will get the idea that it does no good to work, because somebody else is going to benefit from what they work for. When this occurs, it will be the end of this nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
Because Obama rejects exceptionalism, believing instead that Americans should produce according to ability and consume according to need, his will prove to be the most failed presidency in history. If Obama’s policies are allowed to continue unfettered, there will be disastrous consequences for America and the world.
This website is dedicated to fettering those policies in favor of the shining city on a hill.
