Obama's America Will Become Detroit | CNS News

Obama's America Will Become Detroit | CNS News: President Barack Obama travelled to Michigan this week and made his case for class war in defense of the welfare state. We need to take more money from the rich, he said, or schools will not be able to afford books, students will not be able to afford college, and disabled children will not get health care.

"Our economic success has never come from the top down," said Obama. "It comes from the middle out. It comes from the bottom up."

Obama spoke these words a few miles from Detroit — the reductio ad absurdum of his argument. If America continues down the road to Obama's America — a road that began when President Franklin Roosevelt started building a welfare state here — our entire nation will become Detroit. Obama's economic and moral vision has played out in that city. What he seeks has been achieved there.
