I Am Not a Tyrant

President Obama made these comments during the unveiling of his Second Amendment infringement yesterday:
There will be pundits and politicians and special interest lobbyists publicly warning of a tyrannical, all-out assault on liberty — not because that’s true, but because they want to gin up fear or higher ratings or revenue for themselves. And behind the scenes, they’ll do everything they can to block any common-sense reform and make sure nothing changes whatsoever... ~  Barack Obama
Not because that's true? Mr. President, of course you don't think you're a tyrant because,
Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. ~ C.S. Lewis
The problem that I fear we are facing is the one our founders debated at great length when they were designing the American form of government: Are Americans virtuous enough for self-rule? Or, do we require an elite governing class to make us do the right things, against our baser instincts?

I am sure that some folks will scoff at the suggestion that we need to be "virtuous". What an outmoded concept! It's so... nineteenth century! That’s a problem with our culture, not the concept. With liberty and freedom comes great power -- including the right to keep and bear arms -- dangerous! Yes, but,
With great power comes great responsibility ~ Voltaire, Churchill, Roosevelt, Spider Man
The word "virtue" might be a bit dated, but "responsible" isn't. If there are too many irresponsible people walking the streets these days, we may not be responsible enough as a culture to enjoy freedom anymore, as President Obama seems to be suggesting. 

Sadly, Obama may be right. Our culture selected him (a second time!) in part, because he offered to take responsibility for things that we should be doing for ourselves -- at a great cost to our freedom. I fear we are seeing only the tip of the iceberg.


  1. The left is teaching people to be irresponsible and stupid so that they need to have a babysitter.

    Create sheep that require a herder.
    And that has NEVER worked or ended well for the sheep.

    Holy sheep shit, the sheep never get it.

  2. Yes.
    The herders in the end always seek to 'thin the herd' and leave only those sheep who go with the flow. The flow approved by the herders. Slaughter the rest. What the sucking sheep shit for any sheep who want to go their own way, and grow and eat their own grass? Silence of the lambs program? BINGO.

    The only hope the sheeple have here in the new millennium to survive the thinning of the herd is for sheep dogs who live to protect the herd from any threat or predators to do their job.

    In the movie 'A Few Good Men' the marine got it right. They failed to fight for a marine who could not fight for himself.

    We must become real marines, real deal sheep dogs, sworn to to protect and defend their rights and the U.S Constitution because that is our job if we understand present matters in America right now.

    To be sure the left/progressive/all are one hugfesters... remain hell bent on another insane attempt to create a better than ever before lovey dovey utopia where everyone sucks on one super massive nipple of equality and total oneness with complete lock-up to worship mother earth in a total AGENDA 21 must have perfection fest of beyond acid trip of the gods, beyond Jonestown, beyond Heavens Gate, beyond the Bogwan Rashneesh, beyond what the hell whatever anti-reality we know better how every human on earth should live per our most high elitest know it all super duper social lip-lock on the crack pipe of how mankind must comply or we all will die.

    So here we are with the un-informed voter vote elected POTUS.

    Gotta get rid of guns to save the children in schools.

    I would not even consider sending my kids to a sitting duck zone public school sheep producing branwashing mushmind manufacturing machine in the first place, over my dead body.

    Deal with reality, or deal with a utopian tried and true massive body count program. Check historical facts before those get wiped.

    We save the right stuff now with all we have, or kiss freedom and America goodbye.
