Obama Wants to Control My Thermostat

"We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times ... and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK," Obama said.

WHen I saw this in an article today, my first reaction was "what kind of wacky statement is that?". I mean, why do we need the permission of other countries?

Then I realized that this is in the very least a pure politics pitch. After all he was delivering this statement to crowds in Oregon. But I wonder, does he really believe such nonsense? Would he really seek to take away our freedoms if elected President? Surely, he doesn't support the federal government telling citizens how much they are allowed to eat or what kind of car they are allowed to drive or controlling our thermostats.

At least I hope not, or we might be in for a very dark period in this country.
