I think the below needs an answer. Any of my Liberal friends care to have a crack at it? What do you do when someone doesn't want to help out the little guy or the poor? How do you deal with those who disagree with you that government is the solution to all man's ills and it is our duty to contribute to the effort? How do you respond to the idea that if we should be able to have porn published freely we should also be able to discuss Jesus in the public square? Questions and thoughts that deserve a serious answer IMO.
"Liberals have never answered the question: what of those who do not choose to join in a 'common end' that government has chosen for them? What of those who refuse to 'belong to government'? These unfortunate souls must be dealt with, as Obama's departments and agencies are dealing with them: by silencing them, litigating against them, jailing them, and ruining their businesses and reputations. Those tactics, and more, were exactly what European leftists from Mussolini to Stalin resorted to. ... Obama's rationale for a second term is that he wants to govern, and that should be enough. Or as Jay Carney suggested, just shut up. ... George Washington called government 'a dangerous servant and a fearful master.' Thomas Paine called it 'a necessary evil.' For Obama, government is the thing we all belong to, the thing that 'made this country great.' Four more years of Obama will not make this country great, but it will ensure that we belong to government to an unimaginable extent. Obama's message is: 'You and everything you own belong to me.'" --columnist Jeffrey Folks
