Will Grigg?s Liberty Minute

May 19, 2008

During a speech in Roseburg, Oregon, Democratic presidential candidate Barrack Obama endorsed the idea of enforced austerity for Americans: ?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.?

Like practically everyone else in the political class, Mr. Obama has made himself wealthy in a career devoted to regulating the way the rest of us live. Should he be elected president, he will suffer for nothing by way of transportation, food, and other creature comforts, even as the rest of us grapple with price inflation that is putting many of the essentials beyond our economic reach.

Our coming privations will be bad enough without the federal mandates Obama envisions, which would be designed to reduce our standard of living to a level deemed suitable by eco-radicals both here and abroad.

Let us take back the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free.
