The talk of a tyrant

President Obama made a speech at Ohio State University on May 5th and told the graduates not to worry about government. His speech was that of a tyrant trying to hide his misdeeds.

“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.” – President Obama

Well golly, I wonder where we got such ideas? Is it because of the hundred page bills being rammed down our throats? Is it because of the gun ban legislation and the talk of confiscating our weapons? I wonder where we could get such crazy ideas that the government might be out to get us? Is it because we’ve studied history and know that the Nazi’s used the same tactics? Is it because we’ve studied economics and know that government interference is the key cause of business failure?

President Obama speaks of crazy people warning against government, when it is he and his administration who have been the worst culprits of infringing on our constitutional freedoms.

“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.” – President Obama

The president actually said something correct here “we have never been a people who place all our faith in government to solve our problems” and rightly so. Because government is the source of most of our problems. But no Mr president, this is not a democracy, this is a republic. It is built up of individuals, not a murky collective of majority rule.

President Obama tyranny is always lurking just around the corner. It always has been and always will be, because people like yourself use tragedies such as Sandy Hook to ram tyrannical legislation down the throats of innocent law abiding citizens. We are not paranoid fanatics scared of our own shadows. We are afraid of you, and your kind, the socialist monsters who feed on the good of society, who mock capitalism and its good deeds. Mr President you are a tyrant. You are a tyrant because you act like a king, and feel that you know better than everyone else, but sir, only I can know whats best for me, and only the individuals of this nation can know whats best for them. So if its all the same to you, I’ll be watching your administration and its actions, and pointing out all its flaws and its sinister actions. Because as you said “through the hard and frustrating but absolutely necessary work of self-government…you have to be involved in that process.” And sir, as a citizen, I am deeply involved in that process, because freedom is built upon individuals holding back the role of governments, and tyrants like yourself.

The beauty of thought

I spent Saturday taking pictures at a wedding with my wife. Despite all the evils in the world, all the silly games and plundering, there was still joy to be found in the individual. We took photographs for a young couple about the same age as us. They had been together almost as long as we had, and were embarking on a journey together as husband and wife. It is a pleasant experience to capture the joy of a couple like that, and frame those moments for the rest of their lifetimes.

My articles are highly controversial and thought provoking. I am not afraid to rattle other people’s cages. I’ll shake your foundations and challenge your current thought process because what we’re told to think is not always the way things should be. I challenge you to think outside of the box with your own independent mindset. After all, freedom and independence starts with thoughts, with the individual, then the expression of those thoughts.

My father-in-law is a highly controversial figure in the greater Cincinnati area, some of his articles and statements dumbfound readers and listeners. He thinks outside of the box, and challenges the establishment. I agree with most of the things he says, if not all of them, but I love how he isn’t afraid to throw issues out there for what they are.

My sister-in-law’s fiance just started his own blog about Christianity. Though I’m not particularly religious, I like how he is pursuing a creative endeavor to help others.

My wife has a photography blog, she sees the world in a very positive and creative light. I have her to thank for the peace and happiness I feel inside.

I am surrounded by creative people who think outside of the box. My take on issues is different than all of them, but each of us respects the others thoughts, because your thoughts are your first declaration of independence. So put your flag in the ground and write/talk about what you believe in and why, and don’t be afraid to challenge others, or be challenged yourself. Often when we meet opposing views, we find that we need to look for more information to support our case. If your case gets strengthened by what you find; great. If your case gets weakened, perhaps it is you who need to change your position, or at least find out more before you continue down the same old road.

The beauty of thought is that each is your own, and thoughts spiral a web of interesting ideas and information. Declare independence from the establishment, from the norm and from the conformed, and make each thought your own.
