Are we in this together?

What did Bill Clinton really say at the DNC 2012?

We are in it together

We are in it together

Bill Clinton and the Democrats said they want a “we’re all in it together” society—this is their response to Republican’s “we did build that!” or “no apology for success” in Tampa.

So the question is really what a “we’re all in it together” society may look like?

If you look at North Korea, they are surely all in it together. Government controls and owns everything—but they would want their people believe they are sharing everything for the love of the country. People get handouts from government based on what government believes people deserve—i.e. based on their ascribed status, aka Songbun classifications based on their behavior, social and political background. By the way, they also have “roads and bridges” built by the government as well. But they don’t have individual businesses built and owned by people. They don’t have personal motivations because when it does not matter how hard one works, one still gets the same rations (i.e. results) from the government, then why should one strive?

Cuba is another “we’re all in it together” society controlled by the government.

China was too until recently. Vietnam also was until late in the 1990s—and I lived in that “we’re all in it together” society for a few years before escaping in a small boat. Today, even Chinese and Vietnamese are allowed to build and own their businesses although still tightly regulated by governments.

Americans have always believed in personal successes as motivations to build a better life.

Equal opportunity but may not guaranteed equal outcome for everyone.

Americans have always believed in this country. People in this country came together in time of crisis not only for this country but for anywhere in the world as well. Look at 9/11 crisis and how we Americans responded. Looked at how we Americans responded after Haiti earthquake and the Tsunami in South Asia in 2004. Looked at how we’ve built this country into what she is today.

The freedom and the will to strive for better life has built this country into what she is today.

We, Americans, have all been in it together!

We, Americans, just don’t believe the government should control us like Obama and Democrats would want to.

What do Obama and Democrats really want?

Obama and Democrats would want to tax (not just the rich but everyone who earn money) and spend.

Obama and Democrats would want to regulate and control what industries should strive in America.

Obama and Democrats would want full control of health care and decide when old people should just take pain killers instead of life saving medical treatments.

Obama and Democrats would want…

But no, we will not let them get what they want!!!

“We own this country!”
