Obama Warned Us – Government Is

Posted on February 11, 2014 2:00 pm

Government is the police officers who are protecting our communities, and the servicemen and women who are defending us abroad. Government is the roads you drove in on and the speed limits that kept you safe. Government is what ensures that mines adhere to safety standards and that oil spills are cleaned up by the companies that caused them.

BARACK OBAMA, remarks at University of Michigan, May 1, 2010

“Government is the bureaucrat kicking over your daughters ‘unlicensed’ lemonade stand.”

    Government is the IRS agent who audits you for no apparent reason. Government is the entity that promises to improve your health care and does not deliver. Government is the politician who is whining because people are tired of whining government officials. Government is the entity that is slowly strangling every aspect of life in this country while assuring you how much it’s improving your life. Government sucks.

    Government is a career politician flying on a private jet to a bogus taxpayer-funded “fact-finding” mission in a tropical destination, where he or she will bask in the glow of promising to spend massive amounts of taxpayer money on a problem money won’t solve — a politician who has an expense account, an assured and generous retirement, health, and dental plan, an Obamacare waiver, and asssorted tax write-offs, all at taxpayer expense, and has usually not paid for gasoline, rent, drinks, meals, or interest on loans since taking office.

    When my daughter was very young, I read her the most excellent book, Help, Mom! There are Liberals under my Bed!, in which a couple of kids trying to earn money find their lemonade stand regulated, taxed and protested right out of business by a cast of liberal characters who closely resemble actual liberal politicians/villains. Of course, it is impossible to parody the left – the worst excesses imaginable always become their actual behavior. The book should be required reading for impressionable young ‘uns.
