The president of the United States gave a speech to dignitaries in Belgium today. It was a speech that was breathtaking in hypocrisy. In the paragraph below he sounded like a Tea party conservative. He talked about “free will.” How can you have that when he is imposing new illegal and ever changing healthcare laws that bypass congress? IRS nazi-like attacks on conservative groups? He praises the founding documents overseas while on stateside he says those same documents are “negative liberties” If we are all created equal as he states below, how come he treats Americans differently in his “class warfare” rhetoric? After the speech, Europe was not impressed. Same response from America.
“The belief that through conscience and free will, each of us has the right to live as we choose. The belief that power is derived from the consent of the governed, and that laws and institutions should be established to protect that understanding. Those ideas eventually inspired a band of colonists across an ocean, and they wrote them into the Founding documents that still guide America today, including the simple truth that all men—and women—are created equal.”
