Two Views of Freedom

The first comes from President Obama's Energy Secretary, and it encapsulates the "liberal" view of freedom:
“We are taking away a choice that continues to let people waste their own money,” he said.
The next comes from George Washington, and dare I say it, encapsulates the conservative view:
“It will be found an unjust and unwise jealousy to deprive a man of his natural liberty upon the supposition he may abuse it.”
Which view is closer to yours?
