Givers or Takers? No third option.

In Opinion on February 18, 2011 at 9:48 am

Over the last few months, we’ve seen groups gathered in the streets, carrying signs and expressing their political preferences and shouting their opinions, mostly peacefully and without threats of violence.  Boiled down to their essence, each group’s message to the government is either:

–  Take less of my money from me

OR

–  Take more of his money and give it to me.

Which group has your favorite politician defended and which has he belittled?  Has that politician’s position in that debate given you a sense of where he thinks power should reside?  In that choice, can you discern where, in his hierarchy of good things, he places freedom?

In what group do you want to be?
