Young exuberance

Anyone that has not read the recent article from Townhall.com by Laura Hollis needs to do so.

Young hearts and minds are hyped up for Obama but do they know what he is really offering?

I explained Obama’s positions to my teenager this way.

I said in a couple of years you will be able to move out on your own and you would have the freedom to make your own decisions.

Do you have that plan?

Suppose instead of doing that you were required to live at home?

You will be taken care of and all your decisions will be made by us, forever!

You will work but you will hand over your entire paycheck to us.We will decide what you need.We will decide if and when you need college and where it will be.We will decide if and when you date.We will decide if you drive, and what you drive, and where you go, and who you see.We will decide what stuff you have.You will have no choices, we will decide for you….it’s for your own good!

In other words you traded your freedom for security.

Your decision was final….sorry!

Do your friends at school that are ga-ga over Obama know this?

If they did, would they think twice?
