Tyranny  is defined as the arbitrary or unrestrained exercise of power or a despotic  abuse of authority.

 

 

Last  week, headlines informed us that, because of the Sequester, the FAA will be reducing  the number of Air Traffic Controllers and closing 149 control towers completely.  Earlier, the Department of Homeland  Security released  hundreds of illegal aliens awaiting deportation because they could not afford to  hold them because of cuts mandated by the Sequester, they  said.

 

Head  Start is to face cuts  due to Sequestration. Native American children are being sacrificed  to Sequestration according to Slate Magazine. The Marine Corps faces massive  reductions in manpower reports the Wall Street Journal. The U.S.S. Harry  Truman and its escorts are sitting  idle in Norfolk, VA because of the Sequester when they should be on their  way to the other side of the world.

 

The  TSA is threatening cuts that will push airport security lines out onto the street, while the government had been threatening to  cut meat inspections until Congress pushed back.

 

In  other words the Administration is holding a gun to the head of almost every  single American in its quest to inflict the maximum pain possible on each of us  to achieve its political objectives.

 

When  has this occurred in our country's history? When has a president orchestrated  such a symphony of hardship for party politics? When has a president gone to  such lengths for such a small amount of money?

 

The  Sequester represents $85 Billion out of a budget of $3.5 Trillion, or just a 2.42% reduction in  federal spending.  On year on year basis, spending is still increasing by  over 2% over last year. The math used by the Administration to generate this  pain is simply crazy.

 

But  this is the same Administration that decided at the outset to assault  conventional energy in order to raise prices so that green energy could compete.  I was in some of the meetings where the Green Lobby advocated this, and was  stunned at their audacity. So now gasoline is at all time high levels; natural  gas is being stymied; coal is in the Most Wanted list and nuclear has been  sidelined.

 

We  have a Department of Homeland Security that has become one of the largest  bureaucracies in the history of our government in the space of 11 years.   There is very little accountability and DHS has extraordinary powers to infringe  the constitutional rights of our citizenry. Drones, computer monitoring, and  wiretaps are all allowed under the Obama Administration's overwhelming control  of the mechanisms of state.  Just the other day, DHS announced  plans to scan even more private e mail traffic.

 

There  is a simple word for all of this; tyranny.

Re: tyranny

3020 - I think it time to drop 1.5 trillion dollar platinum coin on China, and a a 17 trillion dollar coin on the FED. Then all debts will be paid.  Probably, every year the Treasury over extends itself we just issue a platinum coin to pay off the overdraft, and while we are at it, lets send the treasury a trillion dollar platinum coin to pay off the social security, Medicare, and student loan problem.  That should balance the books, with no pain. lol.
