Differing Philosophies

And now for shameless self-promotion...

Here's a snippet from yesterday's speech by Kerry:

Rarely has there been a moment more urgent for Americans to step up and define ourselves again. On the line is a fundamental choice. A choice between a view that says “you’re on your own,” “go it alone,” or “every man for himself.” Or a different view - a different philosophy - a different conviction of governance - a belief that says our great American challenge is one of shared endeavor and shared sacrifice.

...But for those who still believe in the great tradition of Americans doing great things together, it’s time we started acting like it. We can never compete with the go-it- alone crowd in appeals to selfishness. We can’t afford to be pale imitations of the other side in playing the ‘what’s in it for me’ game. Instead, it’s time we put our appeals where our hearts are - asking the American people to make our country as strong, prosperous, and big-hearted as we know we can be - every day. It’s time we framed every question - every issue -- not in terms of what’s in it for ‘me,’ but what’s in it for all of us?
Sound familiar? It's a theme I've been pursuing for some time now. Most recently, Saturday:

As we start positioning ourselves for '06 and '08, we need to start thinking about the underlying principles that differentiate us from Republicans. Anti-government and privatization as an end in and of itself vs responsible government is a great place to start.
Really, now, do we want a "me only" society envisioned by Grover Norquist? I know I will have anti-government critics, but I'll reiterate my challenge and place my vision of America against the anti-government "me only" vision.

When people are in trouble, the true heart of our nation comes out. On September 11, people braved dangerous circumstances and poured their money and services to help. In the wake of Katrina and the Tsunami in the Pacific, we did the same. That's what makes this country great. That's why we were once a nation admired around the world. And that's the America I want to see again.
