The President to Ohio State Graduation Class

"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."

There should be no surprise that a tyrant would tell us not to pay attention to those that warn against tyranny.  This isn't even an original presentation on behalf of this President.  What we should really be warning against is a voice that would tell us to reject voices of warning.  The President is a tyrant.  He has gotten away with consistently discarding the rule of law.  He should be held accountable and if the people of this country are too distracted or willfully ignorant to do so, then they do not deserve self rule.  Our Republic will end in failure as the left destroys it from the inside.
