Obama's Kansas Speech: "No Citizen Left Alone"

I have never heard a mainstream politician, let alone a President, make such a speech. Obama has dropped all pretense of believing that US Citizens are capable of living their lives in freedom.

His speech was in fact a repudiation of the very basic notion that the individual citizen is the foundation of a moral and just society. This speech put forth a vision of an authoritarian government constantly monitoring and mediating every aspect of our existence.
