I think you have it backwards. It is the progressives who are Nazis. You do it there way, or its the highway. Atlas Shrugged is fiction. It is intended to make a point. And it does. The point is that liberty is everything. Progressives are prepared to sacrifice every liberty for the so-called "greater good." Unfortunately, the greater good is in the eyes of the Progressive and is usually riddled with hardship and disaster for all. So, you are right, Progressives want us all to live in a nasty Gulag. KenC
The Bible and other religious texts ask each individual to help his fellow men/women. But this is an individual requirement. Having government steal people's money to give to others is neither moral or just. What Christians are expected to do is a moral, deeply personal sacrifice. Having the government simply decide how much they are going to take from an individual to give to others does not in any way satisfy the individual's obligation to share with others, it simply makes it more difficult. In addition, the giving by Christians is intended to be personal and includes more than cash handouts. The individual goes out of his way to ensure that those who he/she help are really getting the help they need. When government does it, it is one size fits all and is usually ineffective, if not downright destructive. KenC

Blacks and Obama

Obama is a weight around the neck of anyone who tries to run for president in the future. Who will ever trust a president of the United States again? Clearly he feels that he is a God that does not need to worry about the rules. Will we in future tie down our president to ensure he does not run amok like Obama? Maybe. KenC
