I highly recommending reading Star Parker’s latest column, ‘Beer summit’ should have been about freedom.
One would be hard pressed to find a black American who is not concerned, often from personal experience, about being personally violated as result of arbitrarily exercised authority and power.
Read the Declaration of Independence. Protecting individual liberty against such arbitrary power was and is what it’s all about.
So why do blacks, who have more personal experience than any other group in this nation with abuses of such power, consistently support expanding it?
Why is Professor Gates freaked out by the policeman standing on his porch but not by the intrusive expansion of government into his life and the lives of every other American, white or black?
The purpose of the press conference where Obama was asked about the incident in Cambridge was about his answering questions regarding the massive government takeover of private American lives he is engineering with his health care proposal. A proposal where government will dictate how we get our health care, what health care we will get, and putting life and death in the hands of bureaucrats.
