Grassfire Nation runs a series of petitions. Here is their response, with links to other responses.
Let’s run the numbers of the President’s State of the Union address from last night strictly on word usage:
Fair (8 times), Common (4), Responsibility (6), Share (8), Government (8), Tax (34).
As compared with:
Freedom (1), Liberty (1), Enterprise (0), Free Market (2), Capitalism (0)
What we heard from Obama was a “Common”ist Manifesto from the Class Warrior-In-Chief. Here’s the line which sums up Obama’s statist philosophy: “A return to the American values of fair play and shared responsibility will help us protect our people and our economy.”
Fair play? Fair Share? Sounds like an 8-year-old lobbying for a generous portion of the birthday cake. Yet this is the ground — class warfare — upon which Obama and the Left are making their case to the American people.
Where is the call for liberty, and freedom and free enterprise and free markets? It’s missing. Instead, Obama gives us his “blueprint” for more government intervention in even more aspects of our lives.
Go here for a detailed analysis of Obama’s address from the Liberty News team, including links to the GOP and Tea Party responses.
