The Equality Debate (Townhall.com) October 1, 2012

Posted by daviddavenport in Radio Commentaries.


Mitt Romney’s “47% are dependent…victims” speech and Barack Obama’s I “believe in redistribution” remarks frames one of the most important debates in Campaign 2012. It’s a clash of social policies, with Romney favoring equality of opportunity and Obama seeking equality of outcomes.

Ever since the Declaration of Independence, America has been about liberty. Free speech, freedom of religion, and free markets are the American way.

But Obama believes equality of opportunity is outmoded and even immoral. Income inequality is wrong and the government needs to intervene. If you have a successful business, “you didn’t build that” Obama says, so you need let the government redistribute some of your money.

This is really a form of social engineering. It’s a radical shift from our nation’s past and a striking contrast to the vision put forward by Romney and Ryan. It’s an important choice in November.
