In her latest New Visions Commentary – “Black Backing of Barack Should Not Be Unconditional” – Deneen writes:
It is quite possible to be black and be proud – even excited – about Barack Obama’s achievement while opposing him politically. This black woman, for instance, did not vote for Obama. Furthermore, I don’t believe his policies are sound.I find it unfortunate that Obama’s personal keys to success – hard work and perseverance – are tragically absent from the agenda he espouses. Instead of lauding the virtues of self-reliance and independence, he is pushing massive federal growth and government intrusion.
Collectivism replaces individualism, and government intervention replaces self-preservation…
…Unfortunately, the “We” in Obama’s “Yes We Can!” literally means collectivism and a statist government that stifles our liberties.
I’d rather endorse a “Yes I Can!” philosophy. I think those who came before me would agree.
