Who is your Daddy?

There ought to be a law. Or maybe a department within local government to deal with that. Even possibly a Cabinet level appointee to manage the whole thing.

How did we get here? When did we, as a nation, get to the point that government is our Dad. We want government to help us out of every jam. We expect government to give us things that folks used to pay for themselves.

We are starting to consider everything a right. I don't know how many times I have read that healthcare is a right. Why? Is having a car a right? Is a college degree a right? Is owning a house a right? Is owning a TV a right? Is owning a boat a right? Where do we stop?

To modern day liberals, we don't stop. Anything that a successful American has, is something that everyone should have. If I work a second job and save all of the money from it to buy a boat, that does not matter. What matters is that I have something that someone else does not have, and it is not fair.

Fairness is what modern day libs are after. And if their candidate wins, they just may get it. The problem is that fairness is not possible. The attempt to gain fairness is part of the reason that our government is considered our parent. "Mom, he has something that I want. You need to get it for me". "Mom, I want that and I don't have enough money. You need to give me some money".

My Dad died years ago, and I have not asked for a new one, especially not a government Dad. Maybe it is time as a nation to stop thinking of government as our Dad.

I am sure that many Americans feel that Obama will be their Daddy. I cannot relate to such thinking. What ever happened to hard work?

Maybe not a Daddy ,  Just a rich Uncle named Sam.
