Obama To Grads: Reject Voices That Warn About Government Tyranny
Tuesday, May 7, 2013
This past Sunday, President Obama told graduates of Ohio State University to “reject” voices that warn of government tyranny.
What an incredible statement for a President of the United States to make!
In Federalist Paper 47, James Madison told us: “The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many, and whether hereditary, self-appointed or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of TYRANNY.”
I’m with James Madison on this one, and I am proud to be one of those voices Obama wants Americans to reject. And I am proud to be the Honorary Chairman of an organization, the Our America Initiative, that exists to push back against government policies that threaten the very same liberties, freedoms and rights that the Founders fought so hard to preserve.
I don’t know about the students at Ohio State, but the hundreds of students at the nine colleges and universities I visited over the past few weeks -- from Ohio to Colorado -- are definitely NOT rejecting warnings about a government that has grown too large, that is eroding their civil liberties at every opportunity, and saddling them with unimaginable debt. In fact, the students I talked with are not only heeding warnings about modern-day tyranny, but they are ready to go to work defending against it.
Whether it is the smothering cost of government-run health care that I discussed with Neil Cavuto on Fox Business last week or the dangerous notion that laws such as the Patriot Act and the NDAA are needed to “protect” us, the philosophy of government that President Obama and far too many other politicians of both major parties espouse is, indeed, the tyranny Madison described. And sorry, Mr. President, THAT is what must be rejected.
From Fox News and the Washington Times to campuses across the nation to gatherings in Washington, DC, and New York, I have spent the past several weeks taking the message of liberty to everyone who will listen. And they ARE listening. Americans are ready to see liberty restored as the real traditional value.
Our tremendously successful campus rallies, my appearances on networks from Fox to Russia TV, and interviews with outlets from Real Clear Politics to the Huffington Post are all made possible by the Our America Initiative -- and more importantly, by your support of our efforts.
President Obama may want Americans to “reject” us, but I can assure you that we will NOT be rejected. Go to OurAmericaInitiative.com today and make a contribution that will let us continue to “warn of government tyranny.” America needs to be warned, and with your support of Our America, we WILL be heard!
Thank you for all you do, and for your friendship. These are critical times, and ours is a critical task.
