Proof Obama Doesn't Understand America

I have always known it, but this just proves it. Obama doesn't understand America. In a speech to graduates at Ohio State, President Obama said the following.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: 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.
America is not about whether we place all of our trust in government or none of it.  The founders and the American people understand the need for government. Let's just get that out of the way.

And America was not founded on the principle that democracy, by virtue of doing it 'together', somehow is incapable of the same tyranny as King George.  In fact, democracy is capable of producing even worse tyranny because of the imprimatur of the people and the air of legitimacy it confers.  No, democracy is dangerous too and the founders and the American people know that too.

The great experiment that was America, was about LIMITED self-government.  About a government with limited proscribed powers.  America is about limited self-government and this is what people mean when they say President Obama is destroying America.  All limits are being systematically removed and we are now subject to ill-informed democratic whims of the low-information voter.  Tyranny by idiots.

Obama doesn't understand or doesn't want to understand.

The most effective lies always have a grain of truth so as to sound more accurate.

It's because he's NOT an american, but an enemy working for the enemy. I'm still amazed by the willfull blindness of half of this country's population. Our Lady of America - pray for us and save us!

Better Obama:

"Unfortunately, you've grown up hearing voices that incessantly warn of the Constitution 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 dead white men are always lurking just around the corner. That 'they're gonna put y'all back in chains'. You should reject these voices."

Will do.

And the devil's best trick is in convincing people he doesn't exist.

Notice the strawman argument in Obama's speech? Anyone who is suspicious of government must therefore be for no government at all and just want anarchy. He sets it up where there is no middle ground. As CMR said in the article, it's about LIMITED government.

But Obama is wrong saying that there isn't tyranny lurking around the corner. No matter how great the government may be, the threat of absolute power corrupting absolutely lies just around the corner. All it takes is for the people and media to not hold the government in check and accountable for the actions for tyranny to come sweeping in.

He understands America all too well; he just does not appreciate it. He wants to make it better in his ivory tower mindset by a Socialist and Islamic transformation.

....."ALWAYS" maintained an adversarial position as "anti" government,

.....suddenly, when elected,...is..


....HUMMMM,...let me think?

He gets it. Now he has twisted it and wants to push his distorted agenda on us. Both parties are unified in two things. Lies and deception. When we cast aside these two parties, we may have a chance at reclaiming America. To then. I suspect not.

The whole basis for our system of government was precisely to prevent the tyranny that IS always lurking around the corner!
