One of the biggest debates in the upcoming election will be whether President Obama is pushing the country toward a European-style welfare culture. Mitt Romney, for example, argues that “over the past three years, Barack Obama has been replacing our merit-based society with an entitlement society.”
Obama, in contrast, says the government must play an increasing role — what he likes to call “shared responsibility” — to ensure a society that is fairer. So is Obama turning the country into a welfare society and away from one focused on opportunity?
There is no doubt that Liberals are the party of government. They think the government has a responsibility to cradle the country from birth till grave, even for the people that don’t want to work. Whats is compassionate about bankrupting the United States of America? What is compassionate about driving up the debt to the extent where this country is in a precarious position economically and perhaps militarily down the road? What is compassionate about putting every citizen in danger for this ‘pie in the sky’ theoretical stuff?
We have become an ‘entitlement society’ just like Europe. -Big Drew
