Obama to Expand Federal Power, But Put Things Back When He's Done

Text Size : [+] | [-]

This article from the NY Times suggests, unwittingly, that we've already gone off the cliff, we only don't realize it yet. Even taking Obama at his word, isn't it a problem that we can duck in and out of socialism at will? Are we to be at peace with it because Obama is a good, kind leader who would never do anything to hurt us? What if we're wrong? And do we really want to leave the launch codes out for whoever winds up in the captain's seat in the future? This was supposed to be the difference between a "benevolent" monarchy and our structured and limited federal government: we didn't want to have to depend on benevolence.
