There are three hard lessons that I've learned during my life on this planet. 1. Life is not fair. 2. All human beings will struggle with various types of problems and tragedies. And most important, 3. There is a God and He is not me, or you, or even Barack Obama.
That is why any political leader who promises to fundamentally change life as it plays out under 1 and 2 above is either basically misguided or an outright fraud. The genius of our republic recognizes that the rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness come from God and not any government. These rights guarantee only equality of opportunity, not equality of result.
History tells us that attempts by Statists like Obama to impose a Utopian paradise always result in, at best, economic disaster (i.e. Greece). At worst the dreams of these central planners turn into the living nightmares of Stalin's Russia, Mao's China and Castro's Cuba.
