Hey President Obama, Democracy Is TyrannySubmitted by Jao171 on Sat, 04/06/2013 - 13:19
During President Obama’s recent gun control speech in Colorado, he attempted to discredit his opposition’s argument that the Second Amendment is intended to allow protection against a tyrannical government. The obvious intentions of his speech were to advance his agenda that redefines the Second Amendment as permission to hunt, which is opposes the founders intention of being permission to shoot at a tyrannical government. Breitbart.com reported that Obama stated the following during his recent Colorado speech:
"into fears about government. You hear some of these folks: ‘I need a gun to protect myself from the government. We can’t do background checks because the government’s going to come take my guns away.’ The government’s us. These officials are elected by you … I am constrained as they are constrained by the system that our founders put in place."
The President could not be more wrong. The government is not us. He is utilizing a trick that the State uses frequently to garner support for initiating force against individuals. Normally the State goes about this in a more subtle manner by using the collective “we” when discussing the action of the State. A classic example of this is when the State says, “we are at war”. Truth being, the individuals in this country are not at war unless they are a member of the armed services. Governments go to war against other governments.
