Freedom

Obama thinks Americans need less of it

Obama had this to say yesterday:
"For him to come to Oregon as an environmental president, but his big strategy is to do more drilling and to have a gas tax holiday for three months, that's a phony solution," he said.

Pitching his message to Oregon's environmentally-conscious voters, Obama called on the United States to "lead by example" on global warming, and develop new technologies at home which could be exported to developing countries.

"We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times ... and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK," Obama said.

"That's not leadership. That's not going to happen," he added.
That's what I'm afraid of.

Why do I need the OK of other countries when deciding how much energy I use or food I eat?

For Obama and many of his supporters, foreign opinion is more important than my freedom.
