Obama To Grads: Reject Voices That Warn About Government Tyranny

Today, during the the commencement address President  Obama gave  to the graduating class of  Ohio State University at Ohio Stadium in Columbus, Ohio  he said.
 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.
I think he is worried even the masses are catching on, especially students. There is no other reason he would bring this up.

  1. Grads to Obama: Fcuk off asshloe!

  2. Self rule meaning we (meaning 'The Complex')will put your entire city under lockdown to find two numbnuts who may or may not have set a couple of bombs at the Boston marathon? interesting word use.

  3. The entire left is starting to get worried about the growing concern over people resisting government tyranny. Looks like they're trying to front-run it with their own positive spin PR campaign by demagoguing anybody who believes in limited government as some kind of lunatic fringe. Bill Maher is doing his part:

    Billy Bob doesn't realize that the entire constitution is meant to restrain/cage government tyranny, not just the 2nd amendment.

  4. Amazing double-speak: "we believe in self-rule and self-rule is rule by the few over the many"

  5. The irony of this as the U.S. government supports rebel forces in Syria and the Middle East.

    "by us". Again the inclusion thinking that the People are part of the state and the decision making. I don't know how the People can be part of it outside of taxation when everything must be done in secret. I think it would benefit everybody to promote the idea that we, the People, are separated from the government, especially, its decision making. According to the Second Amendment, we are not a part of them.
