The Age Of Obama: A Strong Government and a Weak America - The Daily Beast

The nation got exactly who they deserved....
In Barack Obama, America elected a chief executive whose Department of Justice has repeatedly targeted the press, whose Internal Revenue Service has gone gunning for conservatives, and whose government has elevated secrecy into a cardinal virtue. The Obama administration’s data grab is not just about national security, or Edward Snowden. It is also an epilogue befitting a candidate who delivered his 2008 convention acceptance speech in front of a temple façade dedicated to himself, and whose faith in government and the state is at the center of his presidency.
This is a man that had no real world experience and is a naive as anyone can be. Yet, we still chose this dope to be POTUS.

But now we are seeing the leviathan and its true colors revealed. One where we trade liberty for nothing. One where the central government is called upon to deliver everything. One where we have to put our full faith and lives on the 'intelligence' and ability of of a central authority that has no capacity to control itself.

We are creating the creature that will lead to the demise of the nation. One that sensible people know will never be able to handle the real world. One that will never be able to deliver what it promises. One that will not only underdeliver but in most situations make them worse.

And then when it comes to s host of things, including the spying on Americans, the Utopian redistribution of income through such programs as Obamacare and the popular Social Security and Medicare, all of which promise security for the people, Ben Franking and the Framers had it right when they designed a central government of limited powers, saying...
Those Who Sacrifice Liberty For Security Deserve Neither.
