    "Our economic success has never come from the top down," said Obama. "It comes from the middle out. It comes from the bottom up."

    Obama spoke these words a few miles from Detroit — the reductio ad absurdum of his argument.

    If America continues down the road to Obama's America — a road that began when President Franklin Roosevelt started building a welfare state here — our entire nation will become Detroit.

    Obama's economic and moral vision has played out in that city. What he seeks has been achieved there.

    What happened to Detroit? It is achieving socialism in one city.


    Obama said in Michigan that if the federal government does not take more money away from people who have earned it, the public schools may not be able to buy school books. But the Department of Education says that in the Detroit public schools — which have books — only 7 percent of the eight graders are grade-level proficient in reading and only 4 percent are grade-level proficient in math.

    School books are not lacking here. Self-reliance, the spirit of individualism, and the Judeo-Christian values that support marriage and family are. They have been driven out by a government that wants the people to depend on it rather than on themselves, their families and their faith.
