Obama takes direct aim at anti-government rhetoric What piece of work Obama is when he says he is concerned that people think government is inherently evil. (Apparently he didn't read Common sense by Thomas Paine where he compared government to something that was evil but needed in society) He also must think that their is some divine force in between the government walls that makes people different because they hold the title 'elected official'. Perhaps I am wrong and government is inherently good and the people are inherently evil which means he and the rest of the left feels it has to correct humanity. Well if that is the case who the hell decided that government could do this? The last time I checked government was composed of the same people as anyone else so that makes government no different than the rest of humanity but with the exception that government acts as an enabler for us. When one person can say no to the other it puts a check on their behavior. This is a kind of check and balance that exist within a free society but government doesn't have that so that makes government an enabler to whatever evil already exist within people. Its not that government is more or less evil than anyone else but more that it's nature removes all the natural checks on their behavior that normally exist in a free society. This turns that organization into something that is evil because each person within it is free to act on whatever evil they have inside them. What else explains the reason that all powerful governments tend to lead to the worst abuses in human behavior? In case you are reading this Obama...I love you baby but you suck as president.
