personal responsibility is making a comeback, and it should be led by someone who sacrificed and served.
Leading by example is an important personal precedent, and asking for wholesale government solutions without personal sacrifice is not the answer.
UPDATE: On the self-indulgence master scale is this museum to Woodstock which the Democrats (including, specifically Hillary) helped to fund with federal tax dollars. As Sen. McCain said earlier in the campaign, "I was tied up at the time":
Duke Devlin, the "hippie who came to Woodstock and never left" is a signature of this self-indulgence (these are the type of boomers who believe Obama is the new messiah):
“Is it over yet?” he asked. “We’re still here talking. We’ve now got this wonderful museum, but I don’t call it a museum, I call it a time capsule. And without me getting too political, a lot of the same ingredients are still the same — we’ve got a war, we have civil rights, we have women’s issues. Back then, we got sick and tired of being sick and tired. I don’t know if this can be recreated, but something like it can happen again. We’re back in the ’50s, man. The reason we’re all here is because we’re not all there.”
