DO AS I SAY? Obama To Ohio State Grads: Reject Voices That Warn About Government Tyranny

“Obama To Ohio State Grads: Reject Voices That Warn About Government Tyranny” … Obama quietly goes about dismantling the constitution and stealing our freedoms and liberties.  Wake up people! The fact that this man has to tell us to reject those who warn about the excesses of government and the theft of our liberty speaks volumes.

This is from the guy who urged his Hispanic audience in 2010 to “punish OUR enemies” and then in the 2012 election shouted: “Voting is the greatest Revenge!”  Yeah, sure, in his mind, government is all about getting out of the way of free citizens and allowing them to thrive.

U.S. President Barack Obama gives the commencement address to the graduating class of The Ohio State University at Ohio Stadium on May 5, 2013 in Columbus, Ohio.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Unfortunately, you’ve grown up hearing voices that incessantly warn of government as nothing more than some separate, sinister entity that’s at the root of all our problems. Some of these same voices also do their best to gum up the works. They’ll warn that tyranny always lurking just around the corner. You should reject these voices. Because what they suggest is that our brave, and creative, and unique experiment in self-rule is somehow just a sham with which we can’t be trusted.

We have never been a people who place all our faith in government to solve our problems. We shouldn’t want to. But we don’t think the government is the source of all our problems, either. Because we understand that this democracy is ours. And as citizens, we understand that it’s not about what America can do for us, it’s about what can be done by us, together, through the hard and frustrating but absolutely necessary work of self-government. And class of 2013, you have to be involved in that process.
