Are the rights of a group GREATER than the rights of an individual?
"Collectivism is defined as the theory and practice that makes some sort of group rather than the individual the fundamental unit of political, social, and economic concern. In theory, collectivists insist that the claims of groups, associations, or the state must normally supersede the claims of individuals."
With Obama's ideals, would you say he is a collectivist? In your opinion~How do his ideals fit in with the ideals of our founding fathers?

I believe ~it is my and my husbands responsibility to work and provide for our family. Not the Federal Governments. The less taxes they take from us, the more we can provide for our family and the less we need the government involved in our live. (as it should be)
I think too much collectivism leads to dependency. Before you know it the "needs of the nation" outweigh the "producers who provide the funds".
I think Obama is building a larger Federal Government and shrinking the private industry. IMO, This is AGAINST what our founding fathers wanted. Some of his ideals may have irreversible consequences. ie: Global Banking Solutions, Nationalized Healthcare.
