“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… They’ll warn that tyranny’s
always lurking around the corner. You should reject these voices.”
Which voices should we reject?
Those who have told us that the Department of Justice seized the phone
records of Associated Press reporters. Or maybe the ones who brought to the American people’s attention that the IRS has been used to harass Conservative and Jewish nonprofit groups. Should we ignore the ones who have brought the truth about Benghazi to light and that it was a terrorist attack and the CIA warned the State Department of such an incident.
Or maybe we shouldn’t listen to those who say Obamacare will mandate our personal health records be turned over to the IRS, or that we will have “death panels.”
For all intents and purposes these examples have made your words at Ohio State ring hollow and have made Alex Jones the “Woodward and Bernstein” of our times.
What else should we not worry about, Mr. President? Should we not take Sen. Rand Paul at his word when he warns that the UN Small Arms Treaty is a backdoor to confiscating guns owned by Americans? How about Sen. Inhofe’s charge that Homeland Security is buying up all the ammo so there is none left for the citizenry to purchase? Or should we discount a Senator from your own Democratic Party, Max Baucus of Montana, who has called Obamacare a “trainwreck.”
And he helped write it!
Its no secret that I’m not your biggest fan, Mr. President, having supported Hillary in 2008 and Romney in 2012, but is that enough to have me classified as a “domestic terrorist?” If the various reports are to be believed that have been written by the Department of Homeland Security- the very fact that I’m a white, gun owning, patriotic male seems to be all it takes to be labeled an “Enemy of the State” these days.
And that is wrong, Mr. President…
