Obama To Grads: Reject Voices That Warn About Govt Tyranny

U.S. President Barack Obama gives the commencement address to the graduating class of The Ohio State University at Ohio Stadium on May 5, 2013 in Columbus, Ohio.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Unfortunately, you've grown up hearing voices that incessantly warn of government as nothing more than some separate, sinister entity that's at the root of all our problems. Some of these same voices also do their best to gum up the works. They'll warn that tyranny always lurking just around the corner. You should reject these voices. Because what they suggest is that our brave, and creative, and unique experiment in self-rule is somehow just a sham with which we can't be trusted.

We have never been a people who place all our faith in government to solve our problems. We shouldn't want to. But we don't think the government is the source of all our problems, either. Because we understand that this democracy is ours.

Are all telephone calls recorded and accessible to US government?

Sent in by Reader: These speeches are sounding more and more like someone from the past. Someone with the same view.

Obama urged the large crowd to "reject" cynicism about government in an age of legislative gridlock and political divisiveness.

"We have never been a people who place all our faith in government so solve our problems, nor do we want it to. But we don’t think the government is to the source of all our problems, either,” Obama said. “As citizens, we understand that America is not about what can be done for us.”

Then who is the source of the problem? The ones that he is telling these young minds to not listen too.

To quote HItler...

"It is thus necessary that the individual should finally come to realize
that his own ego is of no importance in comparison with the existence
of the nation, that the position of the individual is conditioned solely
by the interests of the nation as a whole
