Dissonant Tyranny

It seems like the longer I write my thoughts down, the more frequently things that catch my attention come up.  I haven’t written as much recently, not because of a lack of passion, but a lack of anything different to say from the thousands of voices out there writing or speaking on the same issue.

I could write about President Obama’s speech in Mexico City where he thanked them for voting for him and blamed America for all of Mexico’s problems.

I could write about Bill Ayers’ speech at Kent State University on the anniversary of the Kent State Shooting decades ago and how he whitewashed his own history as a domestic terrorist just week after the Boston Marathon bombing.

I could write about Benghazi and the upcoming Congressional whistleblower hearings (I plan to do so after the fact).

What I really want to address is something said over the weekend at Ohio State University.

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.

President Barack Obama

This president was the keynote speaker at Ohio State’s commencement on May 4th (the same day that Bill Ayers spoke at Kent State coincidentally).  Unpacking this statement, he is basically stating that you should always trust government, that government will never encroach upon your rights, and that those that warn that it will are out of their minds.   Many four letter words come to mind to describe my initial reaction to that statement.

Oh, how we should trust the government… let me count the ways that I ripped from the headlines today.

Obamacare Shock: 9-21% of Americans to Lose Coverage

Are All Telephone Calls Recorded and Accessible to the US Government?

GAO Now Investigating DHS Ammo Purchases

DeMint on Immigration Reform: “If People Read the Bill, It Will Be Blocked.”

Additional $9.3 Trillion Dollar Benefit Cost and $6.4 Trillion National Debt Increase if Amnesty Bill Becomes Law

The Administration’s Benghazi Talking Points Were Complete Lies

And that’s just today.  To summarize – the government lied about healthcare coverage, warrantless wiretaps, billions and billions of rounds of unnecessary ammunition purchases, illegal immigration and amnesty costs, and an act of war committed across a US Consulate that was clear to most people at the start because it was damaging to the narrative put forth by the Administration at the height of a contentious political campaign that should have proved to be for Obama what the Iranian hostage crisis and preceding embassy attack was for the Carter administration in the 1970s.

Trust the government?

Those who are capable of tyranny are capable of perjury to sustain it.

Lysander Spooner

And for those that are not familiar with what perjury is (the conceptional understanding of common terms becoming an endangered species in higher education as it is today).

perjury (n): the voluntary violation of an oath or vow either by swearing to what is untrue or by omission to do what has been promised under oath : false swearing
