Obama is bad, but the Bush's and Clinton's are no less criminal in their acts against the People.

Now that so many camps are ready to receive all the disgruntled non-patrons of the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land, the quote's subject matter isn't going to change any time soon. Considering the 9th and 10th Amendments, along with Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution, all the alphabet soup agencies, monetary system, immigration policies, etc., etc, etc. are criminal threats to the peaceful members of society.

Government is a necessary evil so the less of it the better.

Government is a needed small fire, Best to be maintained, never turn your back on it. nor allow ignorant children to play with it. Let alone ignorant so-called adults. 

E Archer, NYC

Which is why the government is to be ever subservient to and regulated by the People, not the other way around.
