I do not believe that the federal government should have a central and powerful place in American life. I believe in freedom and self-reliance.
Some people, like President Obama, disagree with me. He believes you should part company with your freedom and your money for the privilege of having the government take care of you — wipe your collective backsides, so to speak — from cradle to grave.
In which case — why doesn’t he know how to plug an oil leak?
