Steve - I don't accept your label of my world view as accurate and yes they are worlds apart.
Mr. Obama said "The fundamental belief that I am my brother's keeper, I am my sister's keeper, that's the promise we need to keep. That's the change we need right now".
If he intends to use the weight of the Federal government to force
me to be "My Brother's Keeper", he needs to get a Constitutional Amendment passed stating so, otherwise how about he keep the promises of the Constitution first?
I recognize my Brother's and Sister's needs and voluntarily care for them. Ever notice that those who threaten and demand that you give the most of yourself, when exposed, actually give/serve the least? It's relatively easy to be a Community Organizer with "other peoples" money who are compelled by the threat of force to fund your programs.
It's a fundamental difference in our interpetation of "providing for the general welfare".
