Posted on 05/05/2013 4:15:23 PM PDT by Chickensoup
U.S. President Barack Obama gives the commencement address to the graduating class of The Ohio State University at Ohio Stadium on May 5, 2013 in Columbus, Ohio.
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.

We’re not a democracy, we’re a republic, Mr. Constitutional Lawyer Community Organizer. If you can’t get that right, how’d you get on the Harvard Law Review besides being Halfrican, you moron?
there is an enemy out there. and it is for tyranny and against all individual rights. their main goal is to grow government . and when you grow government you get a decrease in individual rights. So far they are on their way to their total goal a totalitarian socialist state in that the state is in complete control of everything we as individuals do and the government owns everything and an individual can own nothing that is tyranny . they mean to enslave us. and I have not seen anyone on this site( well there may be some exceptions ) but thats not the rule. I havent seen practically anyone on this site nor anywhere really name the enemy that is a threat to us , our individual liberty, even our ability to provide a living for ourselves. theyd like us to be like pets or slaves on a plantation , they decide what well be allowed to eat , see , say etc. The enemy is the DEMOCRAT PARTY. all democrats in Congress voted for Obamacare. not a single Republican in congress voted for socialist Obamacare
So apparently, some folks in government believe that the Ohio State graduating class is out to get them.
LOL! Exactly my first thought too!
I am so glad that my daughter graduated from there a couple of years ago instead of this year. It was bad enough having to listen to Boehner!
Obama To Ohio State Grads: Reject Voices That Warn About Government Tyranny
So President Obama told Americans they should reject the voices the wwords of Patrick Henry, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, The US Constitution etc. etc.
these arent the droids you are looking for
It is self governance choom boy.
Nobody should ever RULE over the United States of America.
A Free people is not RULED.
They say list making is dangerous. But I say it can be great fun. Yes its time to start naming and shaming. (Read tag line)
Russia, China, Cambodia [I think], Russia again, Germany, France.
How'd I do?
PRESIDENT OBAMA: Unfortunately, you’ve grown up hearing voices that incessantly warn that all our times have come, but now they’re gone. Seasons don’t fear the government, nor do the wind, the sun and the rain. We can be like they are. Don’t fear the government. Because we will be able to fly, and I’m your man.
Valentine is done, here but now they’re gone. Barack and Michelle live forever in eternity. But we don’t think the government is the source of all our problems, either. Because 40,000 men and women are coming everyday. Love of two is one. Came the last night of sadness and it was clear they couldn’t go on, through the hard and frustrating but absolutely necessary work of self-government. They looked backward and said goodbye. And class of 2013, you have to be involved in that process. Don’t fear the government. Become like they are.
No....he is Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Castro, Chevez, etc........on second thought, the producers of the TV miniseries ‘The Bible” had Obama pegged just right....Satan himself.
but...I bet those hairy Peter Pans and Panettes couldn't get that right either!
I would SOOOOO love a law that says NO elected politician can use PUBLIC property for speeches, including commencements.
Now that’s funny right there.
Larry the Cable Guy would agree; now if he could just find someone to tech him the math.
Seeing the headline, the phrase that came to mind was pay no attention to that man behind the curtain. LOL
Great minds think alike!
You bet we do!
What do you mean, "we," kemosabe?
