I disagree

With Bill Whittle:

We have, in our storied history, elected Democrats and Republicans, liberals and conservatives and moderates. We have fought, and will continue to fight, pitched battles about how best to govern this nation. But we have never, ever in our 232 year history, elected a President who so completely and openly opposed the idea of limited government, the absolute cornerstone of makes the United States of America unique and exceptional.

Woodrow Wilson.  Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

If there is one thing that has given me hope about an Obama presidency, it is that as a nation we have weathered an actual fascist/socialist presidency in Woodrow Wilson, and survived FDR (while somehow managing to win World War II), and even Jimmy Carter.  I still believe that the fundamental principles that have made America great are still strong, and still exist in we the people.  To believe otherwise would cause me to abandon hope, and I just can’t do that.

    Fortunately the Federal Government doesn’t have as much power as some would like, so the damage is limited.
