Nobody's Opinion

Nobody Reads Alexis De Tocqueville

Nobody ReadsAlexis de

Listening to Obama yesterday, one gets the feeling that he has already decided that his interest lies in the promises of his party, to create and keep the dependency of the American people on the democratic party in order to keep it in power. And in order to do that, the money he needs to bribe and create a dependency crowd of voters, must come from somewhere so, therefore, the military and it’s expenditures come in second to his concerns.

Party and power come first: Hillary and Bernie Sander are continuing this ‘carrot’ with promises of free college education and much more.

I read this today, an observation made by the Frenchman Alexis de Tocqueville around 1835, about what he thought made America great:

One of the happiest consequences of government, (when a people is fortunate enough to be able to do without it, which is rare) is the development of individual strength that inevitably follows from it. Each man learns to think, to act for himself, without counting on the support of an outside force which, however vigilant one supposes it to be, can never answer all social needs. Man, thus accustomed to seek his well-being only through his own efforts, raises himself in his own opinion as he does in the opinion of others: his soul becomes larger and stronger at the same time.

A nation full of strong individuals? What would the ‘progressive party’  do?

  1. “What would the ‘progressive party’ do?”

    Try to destroy them. A self-sufficient individual is an accusing finger pointed directly at the miserable and helpless progs. That’s why they always try to tear down what is great in life.
