Not long afterward, in his closing statement, Romney said, “If the president’s reelected, Obamacare will be fully installed.  In my view, that’s going to mean a whole different way of life….”  He immediately added, “…for people who counted on the insurance plan they had in the past.”  But he could have just left it there, at “way of life.”  For Obamacare would mean a whole different way of life for the American people and a wholly different conception of government’s proper role in a free society.

For those who believe in limited government, in the spirit of the Founders and Lincoln, last night was a good night.
