Why We Should Mistrust the Government

by Andrew P. Napolitano, Lew Rockwell:

It should come as no surprise that President Obama told Ohio State students at graduation ceremonies last week that they should not question authority and they should reject the calls of those who do. He argued that “our brave, creative, unique experiment in self-rule” has been so successful that trusting the government is the same as trusting ourselves; hence, challenging the government is the same as challenging ourselves. And he blasted those who incessantly warn of government tyranny.

Yet, mistrust of government is as old as America itself. America was born out of mistrust of government. The revolution that was fought in the 1770s and 1780s was actually won in the minds of colonists in the mid-1760s when the British imposed the Stamp Act and used writs of assistance to enforce it. The Stamp Act required all persons in the colonies to have government-sold stamps on all documents in their possession, and writs of assistance permitted search warrants written by British troops in which they authorized themselves to enter private homes ostensibly to look for the stamps.

    Why should you mistrust the Government?

    Because it’s run by a group of amoral, psychopathic, narcissistic, HELLIANS, determined to bring an end to the human race as we know it….

    Their frequent, repeated and continued “freedom-destroying” actions, and the complete disregard of the life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness of the common people, proves beyond any doubt of their wicked and heartless intent.

    Deception is their game, and a lying-tongue is their language.

    “Without trust there is nothing.”
