I don’t trust my government as far as I can spit. And you shouldn’t either.
There I’ve said it. I love my country, but I don’t love our politicians or government bureaucrats. Why would I? History proves that people in government the world over are liars, cheats, frauds, incompetents, common criminals, tyrants, and even murderers. Yet you think I should trust them with my phone records, emails, tax records, and healthcare? If you believe that I have a bridge to sell you in Brooklyn.
Let’s not worry about the true despots of world history like Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Castro, or Pol Pot who enslaved and murdered their own people. Let’s ignore King George and the British generals who ordered American colonists burned alive in a locked church. Let’s ignore Southerners who whipped and hung black slaves for daring to want freedom. Let's ignore all that serious and deadly stuff.
Let’s just look at recent history - SEO (Since Electing Obama):
Obama’s IRS persecuted honest people for the crime of being conservative critics of Obama, yet nominated proven tax cheats like Tom Daschle, Nancy Killefer, Hilda Solis, and Ron Kirk to major positions in his administration.
He also criticized Mitt Romney for keeping his money in the Cayman Islands, but then named Jack Lew to become Treasury Secretary, even though Lew keeps his money in the Cayman Islands. Do you trust these cheats and hypocrites to monitor your taxes, oversee your healthcare, or listen to your phone calls?
Obama and Hillary lied about Benghazi, ordered Susan Rice to lie to the media for 2 weeks, then Obama even lied about the terrorist attack multiple times in front of the United Nations.
It now appears Hillary Clinton ordered a cover up of a prostitution scandal in her own State Department.
General James Clapper lied in front of Congress about the NSA surveillance program.
The head of the IRS lied in front of Congress about the scandal involving the targeting of conservatives. I know- I’m one of the victims that was targeted.
Obama claims he knew nothing about IRS persecution, even though he visited with the head of the IRS 157 times in his first term. And he met with the head of the IRS employees union the day before the targeting began.
Attorney General Eric Holder appears to have lied under oath about spying on journalists- including James Rosen of Fox News (and his parents). Holder said he knew nothing about it, while he was the one signing the request for surveillance.
Then there’s the scandals themselves. The IRS scandal. The Benghazi scandal. The Justice Department media spying scandal. The Kathleen Sebelius Obamacare extortion scandal.
