Today’s Nanny State quote comes from FLOTUS Michelle Obama. If you will recall, Michelle has been on this healthy eating kick, even getting a child nutrition bill passed through Congress and officially signed into law by her hubby. During yesterday’s signing ceremony for the law, Michelle Obama came out with this telling line about what children should eat: “We can’t just leave it up to the parents.”
Here we go again. Similar to the argument I already made, above, about healthcare … liberals seem to believe that government can make better decisions than you. In the case of ObamaCare, it is the decision to procure health insurance. In the case of your children’s eating habits, it is the parents’ ability to feed their children healthy food. This imperial federal government mentality – the concept that government always knows what is best for you – is what separates liberals from those who love freedom and personal responsibility. Since when has it become the government’s job to decide what we should be feeding our children? Easy answer: it is not the government’s job.

Michelle Obama on Deciding What Kids Eat:
This is offensive, to say the least, on many levels. First of all, for Moochelle to act like an all knowing elitist who knows more about our kids’ well being than the parents who are mindless dumb masses. Secondly, the fact the federal government is supposed to regulate what we do, what we eat and what our children eat in a free society is reprehensible.
