I've Warned You of Government Tyranny

This blog has warned many times that the biggest problem with big and bigger government is loss of freedom and inevitable government tyranny.

Obama recently warned graduating students at Ohio State to ignore those voices that warn of government "tyranny"
..you've grown up hearing voices that incessantly warn of government as nothing more than some separate, sinister entity that's at the root of all our problems. Some of these same voices also do their best to gum up the works. They'll warn that tyranny always lurking just around the corner. You should reject these voices. 

News of Tyranny and Cover-ups 

Really, we should reject those voices?  Now we hear that the IRS is persecuting "dissidents" by hammering them in audits and in applications for tax-free status.  Targets weren't just Tea Party groups, but anyone who even questioned out-of-control government spending .  From the Wall Street Journal:
The Internal Revenue Service's scrutiny of conservative groups went beyond those with "tea party" or "patriot" in their names—as the agency admitted Friday—to also include ones worried about government spending, debt or taxes, and even ones that lobbied to "make America a better place to live," according to new details of a government probe.
Now we've witnessing a belated burst dam of reporting now about how the Federal government, with the "tone" set by chief executve Obama, is comitting the very malfeasance and tyranny that I've warned.

We hear of IRS persecutions of citizens who happen to disagree with the administration,  the dozen revisions of the Benghazi lies and "talking points" to protect the incompetent or worse,  and the monitoring of journalist's phones and emails in an unprecedented affront to freedom of the press.

It gets worse and keeps piling up.  This is the tip of the iceberg.   Expect more "persecution" news from the highly ideological EPA, "Justice" Department, and HHS.

News of Medicare Fraud

In the news today is a story of 89 persons, including 14 doctors and nurses, who are charged with Medicare fraud to the tune of $100s of million in 8 cities. You can bet that it's just the tip of the iceberg. All of these programs are rife with fraud---as inevitably happens with big government programs.  I'm including this headline to underscore the evils of big government.

HHS Coercive "Donations"

Last Friday, from the Washington Post, reporting that HHS Sibellious has probably broke the law with her "request" for donations from health care companies.   From the Washington Post reported by Townhall:

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has gone, hat in hand, to health industry officials, asking them to make large financial donations to help with the effort to implement President Obama’s landmark health-care law, two people familiar with the outreach said. Her unusual fundraising push comes after Congress repeatedly rejected the Obama administration’s requests for additional funds to set up the Affordable Care Act, leaving HHS to implement the president’s signature legislative accomplishment on what officials have described as a shoestring budget. 
Of course, blame those bad and evil Republicans for "gumming up the works."  Never mind that Obama has almost single-handedly, completely and utterly, poisoned his relationship with the opposition, so much so that he couldn't even get an expanded gun background check bill through the Senate.  He's so stupid that he somehow forgot that he has to work with those people to have any success.

Wait until the bureaucrats, under ObamaCare, deny you care because of your political views!!   You now know that I'm not kidding or exaggerating!!  The IRS is a major administrator of ObamaCare.

Expect failure and more revelations from this supposedly "most transparent" and "post partisan" administration.
