What Happened To Individualism?

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JULY 5, 2019

         THERE ARE MANY THINGS MISSING FROM THIS WAY TOO EARLY PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN, BUT ONE SHOULD BE OBVIOUS, AT LEAST ON THE SIDE OF THE MORE THAN TWENTY DEMOCRAT CANDIDATES.

         THAT SOMETHING IS INDIVIDUAL INITIATIVE. NO ONE TALKS ABOUT CLEARING A PATH SO INDIVIDUALS WILL HAVE MORE OPPORTUNITY TO ACHIEVE ACCORDING TO THEIR TALENTS AND DESIRE TO WORK HARD. IT’S ALL ABOUT GOVERNMENT DOING MORE FOR YOU, A GOVERNMENT THAT HAS -- AND IS -- PROVING ITS INABILITY TO DO MUCH FOR ITSELF. IT IS BLOATED, TOO EXPENSIVE AND IN TOO MANY CASES, WAY OUTSIDE THE BOUNDARIES SET BY THE FOUNDERS IN THE CONSTITUTION. THEY WANTED GOVERNMENT TO BE LIMITED SO THE PEOPLE WOULD BE UNLIMITED.

         WHAT HAPPENED? THE LEFT UNDERSTANDS HUMAN NATURE AND THAT MANY PEOPLE WOULD RATHER GET MONEY FROM OTHERS THAN EARN IT FOR THEMSELVES. GOVERNMENT HAS BECOME AN OBESE NANNY. WE TURN TO IT AS A FIRST RESOURCE, NOT A LAST RESORT. ASKING GOVERNMENT TO DO WHAT IT WAS NOT CREATED TO DO IS LIKE ASKING PIGS TO FLY. RESEARCH HISTORY AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS WHEN GOVERNMENT GETS TOO BIG AND SPENDS TOO MUCH. WE LOSE OUR LIBERTIES. I’M CAL THOMAS.
