I’m so tired of platitudes. You hear people talking to you about freedom from government but they don’t say anything about the lack of freedom when it comes to a person’s right to choose. Or the lack of freedom that exists in a laissez-fair economic environment for people who live on the bottom rung of the socio-economic ladder. If being homeless and eating garbage to stay alive is Freedom…then the definition has been bastardized. Of course – it’s a platitude.
We all want freedom…we just disagree which direction will take us there. I do not think I’m losing any freedom because I’m paying taxes. Anyone who feels that way is a selfish prick. Roads cost money. Schools cost money. Hospitals cost money. Taking care of old people costs money. Armies cost money. If you think you’ve lost freedom because you have to pay taxes – move to Somalia and let me know how great Freedom tastes. And that’s not mentioning how much this guy loves America that he puts all his money in other countries.
Another wrinkle in Romney’s meaning is that we are somehow infringing on the freedom of hedge funds and banks when we expect them to be regulated for fear of another taxpayer bailout. Romney is so in cahoots with the thieves on Wall Street i.e. his DONORS that he doesn’t just want to repeal regulations on Wall Street enacted during the Obama administration – he wants to repeal regulations enacted during the BUSH administration. He wants the system to be easier for banks to take advantage of their customers…to prey on their customers. But what else would you expect from a guy that made hundreds of millions on the backs of workers - story HERE.
Greg Sargent from the Washington Post points out this quote from Mitt Romney:
I think it’s very hard to tell exactly what the president would do, other than by looking at his record in his first three and a half or four years. And we can see where he took the nation in these years. It’s a massive expansion of federal spending, an expansion of the reach of the federal government, and there’s no question in my mind but that his Supreme Court nominees and his policies would be designed toward expanding the role of government in our lives. And frankly, America’s economy runs on freedom. And he has been attacking economic freedom from the first day he came into office.
