Yet, Obama head of the regime and Marxist/Progressives has a completely different view on the role of government in our society.
During a speech in San Jose, California, Obama took one question from the press on national security monitoring of Americans. Without any sense of irony whatsoever in the aftermath of the IRS’ targeting of conservatives, the administration’s stonewalling on Benghazi, the Department of Justice’s targeting of reporters, the Department of Health and Human Services’ leveraging of private organizations for Obamacare public relations cash, and the Environmental Protection Agency’s secret email addresses, Obama unloaded this line:
If people can’t trust not only the executive branch but also don’t trust Congress, and don’t trust federal judges, to make sure that we’re abiding by the Constitution with due process and rule of law, then we’re going to have some problems here.
Of course, that trust has been eroded by the least transparent administration in American history. But Obama added, “You can shout Big Brother or program run amok, but if you actually look at the details, I think we’ve struck the right balance.”
In a commencement speech Obama urged the students to “reject these voices” that warn of the evils of government, saying:
“Still, you’ll hear voices that incessantly warn of government as nothing more than some separate, sinister entity that’s the root of all our problems, even as they do their best to gum up the works; or that tyranny always lurks just around the corner. You should reject these voices. Because what they suggest is that our brave, creative, unique experiment in self-rule is 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, nor do we want it to. But we don’t think the government is the source of all our problems, either. Because we understand that this democracy is ours. As citizens, we understand that America is not about what can be done for us. It’s about what can be done by us, together, through the hard and frustrating but absolutely necessary work of self-government.”
The definition of a tyrannical government is the government or rule of a tyrant or absolute ruler, a state ruled by a tyrant or absolute ruler, oppressive or unjustly severe government on the part of any ruler, a cruel or harsh act or proceeding or an arbitrary, oppressive, or tyrannical action.
The very government that Obama claims need not be feared is today using the force of the IRS to target people who disagree with the regime. Marxist/Progressive Senators have specifically called for the IRS to write new law to enhance that targeting even though the IRS does not have the power to write law.
A powerful Marxist/Progressive government has orchestrated an attack on a private citizen whose only purpose was to help educate Americans in the proper way to register voters and conduct elections. Yet Marxist/Progressive Cummings saw this as a big enough threat to deter the Marxist/Progressive movement that he brought the full force of the government against this law abiding citizen.
The EPA has dictated to owners of private property what they can and cannot build on their private property even though the private owners adhered to all local and state building codes and regulations.
The Bureau of Land Management saw fit to rustle the livestock of a private rancher. Even though BLM has relinquished, approximately 140 head of cattle are still missing. In the course of their enforcement the BLM brandished guns at private citizens and appeared to be ready to shoot our citizens. This was done because Harry Reid wants the land the rancher is using so Reid’s friends can profit from it.
These are only a limited number of recent examples of big government doing what big government does; treat the citizens within its borders in a tyrannical manner. All indications are there is more to come. This regime does follow the dictates and blueprint Marx put forth to bring about the fundamental transformation promised by Obama. Marx also said despotic means would be necessary.
