Constitution Was Written To Protect Us From Obama

“Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters . . . . . but they mean to be masters.”

– Noah Webster

6 Responses to Constitution Was Written To Protect Us From Obama

  1. …from Obama, and Pelosi, and Reid, and the entire Democratic party, and “Chief Justice” John Roberts, and all those (no matter which party, or independents) who consider Obamacare the legitimate law of the land and are pathetically trying to “abide” by it, or that our government is working at all as the Constitution set it up to do. From the Insane Left and the Thoughtless Right, and everyone in between, who are thinking only in those diametrically opposed and grossly insufficient terms.

  2. gator69 says:

    “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be “cured” against one’s will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.”
    – CS Lewis

      I read this C.S. Lewis quote at one time in years past, and have looked for it a few times since then, but have been unable to find it. Can you tell me what book or essay it’s from?

  3. The Iconoclast says:

    It’s not just the President, it’s all of them, most Republican pols included, have gotten so far from the intent of the founding fathers that it’s mind-blowing.

    I think it was von Mises who said that countries are either moving toward socialism or moving toward markets. Which way do you think we’ve been moving the last fifty-odd years, even when Republicans controlled the government?

    Obama? Good intentions? President Dogpile is a bloody sociopath.
