When our nation was founded, a government was formed with great hesitation by the founders. The founders understood that in forming a government they were creating the single biggest threat to the freedom they had just won. In order to protect those freedoms, freedoms they had just won from a tyrannical government, freedoms granted by our Creator and not man nor government, the founders wrote the Constitution. Patrick Henry stated, “The Constitution is an instrument not for the government to restrain the people, but for the people to restrain the government, less it (the government) should come to dominate our lives and our interests.”
The Constitution is not the governments. In fact, the Constitution places limits on the powers of the government. The Constitution states specifically what limited powers the federal government has and reinforces the fact that the federal government’s powers are indeed greatly restricted in the 10th Amendment. This is one reason those who advocate for bigger and a more controlling government also would have us believe that the Constitution is a “living document.” All a “living document” means is that the Constitution has no meaning and thus there are no restriction on the government which is in direct contrast with the whole purpose of the Constitution.
Ronald Reagan said, “The government is not the solution, the government is the problem.” Thomas Paine said, "It is the responsibility of the patriot to protect his country from its government." Sam Adams told us, "If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin."
This is Comrade Obama’s view of government, “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 doing their best to gum up the works. They’ll warn that tyranny is always lurking just around the corner. You should reject these voices”
The age-old question is do we trust those individuals who are in government or do we constantly insist on constant review and total transparency. Our founders and other freedom loving Americans warned us about the danger of entrusting individuals with great power and control and not requiring constant review and transparency. Those who believe in the goodness and control of government insist that all in government can be and should be trusted.
We are now learning why our founders were correct and Comrades like Obama are wrong. The desire by those individuals in government to rule and control can never be underestimated or dismissed. We are learning of people like Holder, Mueller, Brennan, Clapper, Comey, and others who took it upon themselves to determine what is right for the American people. We are also now learning that this directive came from Comrade Obama.
These individuals determined it was their decision to determine what the American people can and should know, who should be elected president, that it was right for them to lie and mislead, that it was right for them to release government and classified information, and that they are above the law and therefore their actions and deeds should not be investigated and revealed.
Now Clapper, who has on several other occasions blatantly lied to the American people, is telling us it was for the good of the American people and the Trump campaign that the federal government spied on the Trump campaign. This is distorted logic that only a conspiring and narcissistic individual could conceive. The facts seem to point to Obama at the very least approving of these actions.
What is being revealed is that a conspiracy to thwart the rule of law and the Constitution itself was a part of the daily workings of the Obama regime. They apparently believed their scheme would go undiscovered when Hillary took office. Then election night happened. They continued to try to cover their anti-freedom activities with the appointment of Mueller. Now the truth is unraveling despite of Mueller’s activities.
Holder and the others have said a complete and transparent investigation would be harmful to and undermine the DOJ and the FBI and in fact the whole government. To allow the deeds of those who desired to undermine the very fabric of our Republic to remain secret would be far more dangerous. The United States is facing a Constitutional crisis. Our Republic has and is being threatened. These who have perpetrated this conspiracy are in the same category as was Benedict Arnold.
