Obama was fine with technology until everyone started recognizing – and talking about – his deception and manipulation. And even with the topic of technology, he can’t avoid pulling the “race card,” with words like “empowerment” and “emancipation.” Regardless of one’s race, those words sound great to a largely uneducated audience (thanks to the government school system), who are looking for someone to bail them out of all their woes. In other words, they cling to words like “empowerment” and “emancipation” and I believe they would throw their electronic devices off a cliff, and possibly jump themselves, if Obama said to do so. After all, he is the “savior.”
Our Founding Fathers decided that their leader would be called a “president” and did not allow him to rise to the title of “king” or “dictator” for a reason – to preserve the integrity of our system of checks and balances and to ensure an individual’s right to life, liberty and the PURSUIT of happiness. They never guaranteed that we would have these things, but if we work hard and keep our leaders in check, then our country provides more opportunity than any other for the tired, the poor, the wretched, the huddled masses YEARNING to breathe free.
It breaks my heart to see the things going on in this country. I believe Obama will use this new push against technology to suspend the flow of information as we know it, which is a direct violation of the First Amendment. If this happens, we will no longer have a chance against a tyrannical government. After all, the First Amendment protects ALL speech for a reason. Obama can claim that others are spreading lies, but without freedom of speech, we wouldn’t be able to deny that or point out all his discrepancies of speech. It also seems ironic to me that suddenly Oprah has started an anti-cell phone campaign and Obama seemingly has started an anti-technology campaign.
Obama’s real complaint can be found in his comments to the graduating class, when he stated that the students were “coming of age in a 24/7 media environment that bombards us with all kinds of content and exposes us to all kinds of arguments, some of which don’t always rank that high on the truth meter.” In reality, I think Obama is worried that those of us who are diligent will continue to find errors in his statements and expose his lies, his deception, and his blatant intent to transform our country from the republic it once was to a pure socialist state where justice, money, property, and everything else is “distributed” under the control of a strong central government, thus removing the rights of the individual altogether!
