Glenn Beck on Tuesday asked Americans to decide who they are and what kind of country they want to live in.
"There are two things I want to tell you about. And America, it's time for us to decide who we are," Beck said on his radio program. "Which one of these stories are we? I know which one I am. I know which one I want to strive for. I know which one I believe the average person is."
Beck told the story of a Detroit-area postal employee accused of stealing as many as 2,000 pieces of mail because she was bored, and a widow who donated her wedding ring to the Salvation Army so they could buy toys for children in need.
"Light or dark? Life or death? Good or evil?" Beck said. "Which are we?"Beck also spoke about Obamacare, asking whether "we [are] going to be people that tell the truth and really make the case and let the people decide ... because this is a nation of the people, by the people, for the people."
Jonathan Gruber, who helped craft the legislation, testified on Capitol Hill Tuesday after videos surfaced of him saying Obamacare was passed in part because of the "stupidity of the American voter" and bragging about how the late Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) figured out a way to “rip off” American taxpayers for $400 million a year, among other questionable comments.
"Are we going to treat [the American people] like morons, and lie and cheat and steal?" Beck asked. "Or are we going to be better than that?"
Beck asked if Americans even know what they are working for, saying if they don't, "we're all headed for a Post Office in Detroit."
"We'll all be bored. We won't see the difference between right and wrong. We'll just do what we want," Beck said. "Nothing else matters. It's 'me, me, me.' The world owes it to us."
Beck said it is time Americans focus on real values and principles.
"Choose," he concluded. "Life or death. Choose today."
