Obama's Slavocracy

A thought provoking piece of writing from Mark Steyn "Live Free or Die" (HT: Mad Minerva) where he says:
Americans face a choice: They can rediscover the animating principles of the American idea—of limited government, a self-reliant citizenry, and the opportunities to exploit your talents to the fullest—or they can join most of the rest of the Western world in terminal decline. Read it all.
It's time for Americans to decide what kind of future they want for themselves; do they want to be adults and make their own choices regarding health care, education etc. or do they want to become the wards of the state? Will America let itself be lured by Obama's promise of the welfare utopia and willingly tie shackles of slavery? In a mockery of the great fathers of the Republic Obama wants to reward the majority with the fruits of productiveness of the few. He has become the uncompromising, unblushing representative of a flagrant Socialism. I hope the American idea prevails and I say this with a lot of passion "live long and prosper, America".
