During the recent gun control wars in the US Senate, Senator Harry Reid characterized the legitimate concerns of gun owners thusly, as reported at Reference 1:
“And I will vote for the ban because saving the lives of young police officers and innocent civilians is more important than preventing imagined tyranny.”
Imagined tyranny, Senator?
Since Reid made his foolish remarks, two scandals have exploded into the news headlines:
During a hearing in the US House on May 8, three whistle-blowers confirmed that the Obama administration has, at the highest levels, worked to cover-up the truth surrounding the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack that cost four American patriots their lives.
Scrubbing the “Talking Points” memo to remove references to Al-Quaeda and other facts inconsistent with Obama’s campaign rhetoric can hardly be seen as anything but an attempt to misrepresent the truth (lie!) about the tragic murders of four American diplomats.
Deliberately oobscuring the truth about the murder of Americans strictly for political reasons IS tyranny, Senator, real and in your face!
IRS Profiles Based on Political Ideology:
While Hillary Clinton, the White House, and other key administration departments and figures were working to keep Benghazi contained, it turns out the IRS was abusing their power by selecting conservative groups for review based on the fact that the groups were conservative.
IRS weasels were particularly fond of looking into the doings of organizations with the words “patriot” and “tea party” in their profiles.
Singling out citizens who call themselves “patriots” for extra scrutiny by the IRS certainly sounds like REAL tyranny to me, Senator!
In addition, have you forgotten the Obama-Pelosi-Reid Marxist health care nightmare which was passed against the wishes of the American people and despite stern warnings from conservatives of both parties, Senator?
It is called ObamaCare, sir, perhaps the most hideous example of REAL tyranny ever dumped on the American people by elected ‘representatives,’ whom wisely exempted themselves and their families from the third-world devastation to medicine passed by fiat in the twilight hours of Washington, D.C.
Perhaps you, in your declining years, Senator, still take pride in replacing the world’s greatest health care system with Marxist tyranny.
However, fellow Democrat Max Baucus does not share your foolish pride. He sees an imminent train wreck as the Obama administration struggles to implement the 2000 pages of idiocy that Nancy Pelosi urged passage of so that “we could learn what’s in it.”
Imagined tyranny, indeed!
Had ObamaCare been subject to the normal procedures for Democratic debate, the damn thing would have been incinerated before it was promulgated!
But that is what happens when real tyranny rules, driven by the desire to create a legacy for an unqualified community organizer posing as president!
Then we have the matter of 20 million or so illegal foreign aliens nesting in America at a cost of $113 billion a year to the American taxpayers besides threatening home land security and American culture.
These invaders should have been sent home long ago, but because of tyranny and corruption, they remain an albatross around the necks of law-abiding citizens and the whole concept of rule of law in America.
Shame on you and other tyrants, Senator, who are about to force 20 million illegal aliens down the throats of we the people!
That is genuine tyranny, sir!
Lest we forget, the federal government has run up about $16.5 trillion dollars in debt, an act of tyranny that may very well drive the nation to economic ruin.
From these examples, it should be obvious to everyone who cares that the American government is completely out of control and in the hands of maniacal tyrants!
Imagined tyranny, Senator? Hell no!
