About that 47%
Former Governor Romney is Correct
by former Superior Court of New Jersey, Andrew P. Napolitano—a Ron Paul supporter.
Even if Romney ran to the left of Ted Kennedy, in 1994 and then governed like Mario Cuomo in New York, whichever version of Romney shows up, should he be elected, he's still right on this.
Now comes Romney to say that this [refers to FDR's lies on SS] has gotten out of hand. The feds have deliberately created a class of persons – 47 percent of people living in America today – dependent upon them. The governor is right. Anyone lulled into a false sense of security is a victim, and any government that has deceived members of the public to get them there is dangerous. Thus, the revelation that the big-government types who have dominated the federal government for 100 years, who want voters dependent upon them so that they can count on their votes, and who have made those voters victims have stung the Obama campaign and its media supporters. Romney was correct to call the 47 percent who are dependent upon the government victims of the government’s deceptions and lust for power, and he is courageous to stick to his guns.
“Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.” — James Madison
