Trust Us

After all, you elected Us because We know best.

That seems to be the message broadcasting from the leader at the top of the party in power. In all honesty, I am becoming increasingly afraid of a full embrace of collectivism under Obama. I am typically quick to brush off all the right-wing propaganda. But three things have me second guessing this initial impulse:

1. Lot's of people love him. And it's the do-anything-for-you sort of love. Exhibit A.

2. There is already talk of mandatory national service. Exibit B.

3. The so-called financial crisis. And we will let Higgs' work on the Ratchet Effect stand as Exhibit C.

If I am unnecessarily fearful, please correct me.
