Mark Steyn on how Obamania wants to take the best thing in the world, America's freedom, and turn it into something else.
Speaking personally, I don’t want to remake America. I’m an immigrant and one reason I came here is because most of the rest of the western world remade itself along the lines Sen. Obama has in mind. This is pretty much the end of the line for me. If he remakes America, there’s nowhere for me to go — although presumably once he’s lowered sea levels around the planet there should be a few new atolls popping up here and there.
This is one of the things that has always bothered me about "progressive" thought. "Progressives" are continually wanting to turn the US into Europe. But why?
Europe is already available, if you want Europe you're always free to go there. This is the US. There is a reason millions upon millions of people emigrate from Europe to here. It's because we're not Europe.
Haven't these people heard? We don't have socialized medicine. We also don't have 10% unemployment and a decaying society as a result of the rampant socialism where workers have a disincentive to work.
