The Stench of Tyranny Clings to Barack Obama

by Will Grigg

Like a skunk that has grown inured to its own smell, Barack Obama is oblivious to the dense musk of tyrannical arrogance that he customarily emits. As someone who is statist to down to his chromosomes, Mr. Obama doesn’t recognize the legitimacy of any limit on the powers of government. This was made abundantly – and redundantly – clear in a recent interview Obama gave to Charlie Rose, a sycophantic PBS host, regarding the patently unconstitutional NSA surveillance program.

Speaking about what he called “tradeoffs” between freedom and security, Obama said: “I don’t think anybody says we’re no longer free because we have checkpoints at airports.”

Actually, tens of millions of people recognize that airport checkpoints do illustrate that this is no longer a free society. A country ruled by a government that subjects innocent travelers to vulgar humiliation, virtual strip-searches, and low-grade sexual battery as a matter of policy is not free in any sense the American Founders would recognize.

It’s easy to imagine Mr. Obama applying the same facile formula to other abuses – such as execution of U.S. citizens by presidential decree, the use of the IRS to persecute political dissents, and so on.  This is because he neither understands nor respects freedom.

11892 There is no "tradeoff" between freedom and security. That bastard in the White House has taken both of them from the American people.

75169 B. O. , for once I agree with you.
Long before the checkpoints, our great-grandparents were saddled with income tax. Then Social Security tax. Also property tax, vehicle tax, fuel tax, alcohol and tobacco taxes, sales tax on our food, clothing, etc.
If you want to work for yourself then then state will declare that you, an individual, are now a business. To be a business you must surrender nearly all remaining fragments of your privacy, financial and otherwise, and enlist as a trustee in the tax-farm.
If you hire help, you will now be required to be complicit in the fleecing of your slaves... umm, please excuse me, I meant employees.
Also, the state threatens us so thoroughly that we surrender our children up to compulsory indoctrination camp for twelve years. We are slaves!
