Hope

Strange that so few people understand that hope is contingent upon having the freedom to make your own value choices and make their achievement your personal dream.  Without the dream, there is no hope.  Without the value choice, there is no dream.

Understanding this simple fact makes Obama's idea of big government dictated values a hope-killer.  Hope becomes an illusion, an empty promise, a delusion of the masses when the special interests that control government replace personal value choices by each of us with their enforced value choices.  The way his administration is playing out is making this "hope" phantasm all too apparent.
