So he finally opened the door to the Fascist outhouse, and now all those cheering Liberals and champions of the President can smell that we were right and they were wrong when we warned the nation of the Fascist nature of President Obama. A man who could attend a church for 20 years that would give its Man of the Year award to the racist bigot, Louis Farrakhan, was certainly not fit to be President. And now the entire public, and the President’s own defenders can see why.
President Obama’s assault on Press Freedom may come as a surprise to modern Democrats in 2013, but it would have been no surprise to Thomas Jefferson, or those inflamers of the desire for Liberty, John Trenchard and Thomas Gordon, the authors of the famous “Cato’s Letters” that both aroused and instructed the American colonists against Tyranny.
In those “Letters”, Trenchard and Gordon wrote, ” We know, by infinite Examples and Experience, that Men possessed of Power, rather than part with it, will do anything, even the worst and the blackest, to keep it, and scarce ever a Man upon Earth when out of it as long as he could carry every Thing his own way in it…”
“It is the Nature of Power to be ever encroaching, and converting every extraordinary Power, granted at particular Times, and upon particular Occasions, into an ordinary power, to be used at all Times, and when there is no Occasion, nor does it ever part willingly with any Advantage…” (Page Obama and Holder)
“Alas! Power encroaches daily on Liberty, with a success too evident; and the Balance between them is almost lost. Tyranny has engrossed almost the whole Earth, and striking at Mankind Root and Branch, makes the World a Slaughterhouse, and will certainly go on to destroy, till it is either destroyed itself, or, which is more likely, has left nothing else to destroy.”
No gullible believers, like the bulk of the modern American Public, these 18th century Libertarians knew that government is not a friendly neighborhood grocer, but a necessary evil full of power-hungry men who must be bound down by the chains of a Constitution and Bill of Rights. They knew the types of President Obama and Attorney General Holder very well, a quarter of a millenium ago.
Ron Paul and legal scholar Jonathan Turley have long warned against the encroachments on Liberty of the current administration, but Liberal Democrats have ignored these warnings and abuses, and have continued to support the President up to the current time. Now they, and the Public, can see what an individual they have put into power, and it is primarily their responsibility to control and even impeach him if he attempts any further outrageous crimes against Press Freedom.
But it’s good news for the Fascists: Nixon is back!
