One Small Voice. A Lot of Big Ideas. Let Freedom Ring!
It wasn’t the looking down instead of looking Romney in the eye. It wasn’t the slumped shoulders. It wasn’t the rambling. It wasn’t the ineptitude of handling both the topics and his opponent.
In my opinion, the biggest mistake that Obama made, which sums up the problem with Big Government today, was his response to Jim Lehrer’s question: What is the role of government?
Yes, that can involve military action against enemies that would like to see America diminished and our freedoms abolished. But the thwarting of enemies by our military, law enforcement and intelligence should only be used as carefully wielded tools to ensure that our constitution is upheld and our liberties protected.
Every trade agreement, every treaty, every military action, every piece of legislation, every regulation should be carefully monitored to ensure that the main objective–the preservation of our individual liberties– is upheld.
Of course Government and politicians do not follow that creed. What a great nation we really would be, if only! But the leader of the free world should at least acknowledge that preservation of our freedoms is the #1 role of government.
Obama doesn’t get it.
I do NOT want, our founders did NOT want, a government that believes its first priority is to keep us “safe”. I can get that sentiment in almost any country in the world.
What I can’t get and what I can’t find anywhere else except America is the US Constitution and a promise, no matter how poorly kept, to honor the principals of small government and individual liberty.
Americans who cherish freedom have another very big reason NOT to vote for Obama.
