Barack Obama is the anarchistSubmitted by Diamond Dog on Sat, 07/06/2013 - 01:27
From the Humble Libertarian: Clever.
...No, I'm not a full out anarchist. Barack Obama is.
1. absence of government
2. a state of lawlessness or political disorder due to the absence of governmental authority
I believe in government. I govern myself and my actions every day. As part of that government, I associate with people who govern themselves in an orderly and lawful manner. I do not associate with lawless, disordered individuals. At least not unless they force me to.
I would say the one lawless interaction I am forced to engage in which really sticks out in my mind is the payment of my federal income taxes, which I do only because I'm afraid. I'm afraid that if I don't, the lawless crime syndicate known as the Washington regime will begin to harass me, then intimidate me, then harass and intimidate the financial institutions I do business with into freezing my accounts, and may eventually send an armed gang whose salary I pay only because I'm afraid to kidnap me and lock me in a cage.
My other interactions, however, are orderly and motivated not by fear and threats, but by love and enticements. When I give my money to a grocery store, it's because I love the quality, diversity, and price of their products. I love how those products support and enhance my life.
Reread that second definition of anarchy. Fast and Furious? Summary execution by drone? Warrantless spying? Warrantless searches in airports? Taking money by force from frightened Americans to give to foreign governments that sponsor terrorism and to foreign rebels supported by known terrorists? Lawlessness and political disorder due to the absense of governmental authority, all of it.
Obama and his supporters are the ones who don't believe in law, order, or government. They believe in power and the projection and consolidation of power in the hands of an elite few, the world's most prolific anarchists.
Me? I'm just a humble libertarian.
