Last night the fella from Atlanta’s Old Fourth Ward was the lead off guest for Fox News’ new evening lineup starting with Greta von Susteren.Ten years ago I was just a simple Artillery Battalion Commander leading American soldiers in Iraq. I am constantly amazed at how exceptional America truly is because of the sense of equality of opportunity that means regardless of where you are born or come from, high achievement is attainable. However, on the O’Reilly Factor last night Bill posed a question to Juan Williams about the morality of hurting one to elevate another. It reminded me of the Karl Marx quote, “From each according to his ability to each according to his needs.” The counter to America’s promise of equality of opportunity is the progressive socialist vision, led by Obama, of equality of outcomes. This is the dilemma in which America finds herself engaged. Shall we continue to be a Republic that promotes opportunity for its citizens or shall we devolve into a communal society mandated by those who will determine our path? I choose the former, what say you?
