He believes all of this.
He also believes it's his duty to redistribute the wealth of others, keep them working as slaves and share the fruits of their labor with the less industrious.
"Stuff's gettin better"
2012
No way does Obama believe "that the free enterprise system is the greatest engine of prosperity the world’s ever known" or in "self-reliance and individual initiative and risk takers being rewarded."

The only "reliance" he believes in is on the government.

This is interesting:
The wave of organized Walmart strikes that hit 12 states last week has now inspired more of the company's employees to take up the cause.
On Sunday evening, a band of renegade Walmart employees in Sapulpa, Okla., left work to protest without the aid of national labor groups. Stirred by what they saw on the news, Jeffrey Landry, David Gibbs and Nathan Beck stood outside in the vast parking lot of their Supercenter with homemade signs, beckoning cars to honk.
They're trying to prove they're in charge by silencing me," said Landry, a father of three who earns $8.65 an hour and has worked at Walmart for two and a half years.
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/17/walm...
From your own article: A total of 88 people remains a drop of water in an ocean of workers for Walmart, which is the largest private employer in America with 1.4 million employees. Walmart has claimed that the strikers do not represent the average worker, or "associate." The company cites improved employee satisfaction scores over the past several years and a turnover rate of 37.26 percent -- lower than the retail industry's average of 43.6 percent -- as clear indications of its employee experience.
What other type of work is Mr. Landry qualified for? do you know?

Chris Matthews Freaks Out, Obama should watch MSNBC!

So what was Chris Matthews advice to Obama after watching him, in his own words, lose the debate?“Watch more MSNBC!” He goes on to essentially admit that MSNBC has their “knives out” for Mitt Romney. You can’t make this stuff up!

I just don't understand why women could vote for Mitt. If he gets elected and appoints two justices to the SC, women are totally screwed in this country.
You know that Rick Scott wants to get rid of those 3 judges on the FL SC? We may as well have a dictatorship then.

BTW, the government does not own all the preferred stock of our healthcare system & run all the hospitals & hire all the doctors. Evidently, you seem to think so.
No not yet but they are working on it. What do you think single payer will do?

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.— That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,— That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.— Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

the most important part of this is "That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security." read this carefully and think of are longstanding government and all that they have done over the years and then ask yourself if this is what this document meant and should we protect are freedoms from this government that has had many mistakes and attacks on us as American citizens remember is is or right or duty to throw off such a government and provide a new one to protect are rights
