Obama’s Speech in Elyria, Ohio: Good news, this is not about him!
This past Friday, our beloved leader, Barack Obama, took his soaring rhetoric to new heights during a staged “town hall” event in Ohio. His speech was littered with the same awe inspiring language and pot-shots at the rich that he used to trick the country into electing him president in November, 2008. He reassured those good people in Ohio, whose unemployment rate has steadily risen throughout his presidency, that he “ran for this office to rebuild our economy so it works not just for a fortunate few, but for hardworking people in this country.” As if those “fortunate few” are just that, simply fortunate. He then made it clear that he want let a little road block like a republican winning a senate seat in a solidly blue state (Scott Brown, Massachusetts) stop his push for Obamacare. Obama wants us all to know that he is going to ram this down our throats whether we want it or not. After all he knows what we need, better than we do. The real kicker here is that he said:
But this isn’t about me. It’s about you.
Well, it sure is comforting to know that he is destroying the country, but he’s doing it for us. This brings to mind a quote from C.S. Lewis:
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
