"It is clearly stated in our founding document, the Declaration of Independence, which contains the radical concept that legitimate government exists to protect our individual right to 'Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.' Happiness here refers to our personal goals, dreams and ambitions. Indeed, the concept of group rights or group goals is missing from the Declaration, the Constitution, the Federalist Papers and anything related to the American founding that made for American exceptionalism. Yet Mr. Obama and those colleagues who share his collectivist, we-are-family, what-is-America's-purpose mentality aim to 'win' the future. The question is, whose future?" (03/28/11)
