Driving the Day: Campaigner-in-Chief
Yesterday in Chicago, President-turned-candidate Barack Obama continued his heated campaign rhetoric, accusing conservatives of wanting to destroy America. Mr. Obama told a group of party faithful:
Under their vision, we can’t invest in roads and bridges and broadband and high-speed rail…
I mean, we would be a nation of potholes, and our airports would be worse than places that we thought — that we used to call the Third World, but who are now investing in infrastructure.
The President’s rhetoric could not be more clear; in his world, success is determined by government “investments.” Conservatives have a starkly different approach.
We believe in empowering individuals, not government bureaucrats. We believe in the strength of civil society, not government institutions. We believe in the power of entrepreneurship, not central planning.
Where do you stand?
