Obama: Trust The Government


During a speech Friday President Barack Obama attempted to justify the government’s massive collection of American phone records. His message: Trust us, we’re from the government.

“If people can’t trust not only the executive branch but also don’t trust Congress, and don’t trust federal judges, to make sure that we’re abiding by the Constitution with due process and rule of law, then we’re going to have some problems here,” Obama declared.

And the people behind the programs cherish our Constitution,” according to the President.

“The last thing they’d be doing is taking programs like this to listen to someone’s phone calls,” he said.

The takeaway for American citizens who are concerned: You’re just being an alarmist.

“You can shout Big Brother or program run amok, but if you actually look at the details, I think we’ve struck the right balance,” he added.

    uhh… I agree with the idea that Obama is tearing down the country with his corrupt political agenda, but adversely, and in an adversarial system such as ours, Bush did precisely that exact same thing; they are all inherently regime committed to global control, and they are all terribly corrupt. These people are Nazis.

    As President Reagan so famously said, “the nine most terrifying words in the English language are, I’m from the government and I’m here to help.”

    They say “Actions speaks louder than words”.
    None of Obozo’s actions matches up with his words.
    And how to tell when Obozo lies? ,…..each and every time we see his lips moving.

    He never walks his talk, but boy does he ever talk the walk!
