Has the U.S Become Soft?
President Obama thinks so. He said as much in an interview with WESH-TV in Orlando, FL:
“This is a great great country that had gotten a little soft and we didn’t have that same competitive edge that we needed over the last couple of decades,” Mr. Obama said in response to a question about the country’s economic future. “We need to get back on track.”
If President Obama thinks the country has gone soft, then he must think that big government has made it that way. Over regulation, welfare, a high tax burden and massive debt have all lead us to this point.
Maybe it’s time America give conservatism a chance. Start taking care of oneself instead of relying on the government to protect you from yourself.
