But these were not the people Obama feels the need to liberate modern day slaves from. No instead he believes that in creating greater government dependency in the life of the individual, the more "free" they will be.
Americans do not feel this way.
SLAVES AND MASTERS
By pleading with those scant 3000 in attendance to keep up the effort through November he seemed to imply that the continuance of slavery could be staved off. Yet I'm not sure if he truly understands the difference in slaves and masters. Your very literal ability to live, breathe, think, act, and react for yourself--by your own decisions--is what Americans believe freedom is. Every time Government reaches further into your pocket and takes more of what you produce you have "less ability" by nature. Our choices are shrinking daily with the new pressures Obama's largest programs have dumped upon small businesses. If our choices are shrinking, then our freedom is being erased and we are becoming dependent (read that: enslaved) to a bureaucracy that takes in more of the resources, but only dishes them out via political alliance--or at the very least leaves the door open for such actions to be taken.
THE NATURE OF FREEDOM
Freedom is my ability to choose for myself. In the late 1800's and early 1900's Republicans argued for limited government, greater freedom for all, and absolute emancipation for those that had been acted against our of pure spite and prejudice. When Democrats were burning down homes, dressed in white sheets, Republicans were sending the first black congressional members to both bodies of Congress, as well as the Governor's mansions in several states, and of course to state assemblies. Many of the charter Republican organizations in the South were organized, initiated, and operated by black Americans.
Obama confuses freedom for slavery.
He has read of others who did free slaves. But he himself comes up short.
For anyone that forcibly coerces so many others into poorly run, horribly inefficient public policies to the degree that their very life depends them--may fancy themselves as historic.
But they are not setting anyone free from anything.
He is instead the new slave owner, operating the ultimate plantation, funded on the broken backs of tax-payers, who are in need of a civil revolt to restore what had belonged to them--self determination.
