During his speech in San Jose, California on Friday, President Obama took one question from the press on national security monitoring of Americans. Without any sense of irony whatsoever in the aftermath of the IRS’ targeting of conservatives, the administration’s stonewalling on Benghazi, the Department of Justice’s targeting of reporters, the Department of Health and Human Services’ leveraging of private organizations for Obamacare public relations cash, and the Environmental Protection Agency’s secret email addresses, Obama unloaded this line:

If people can’t trust not only the executive branch but also don’t trust Congress, and don’t trust federal judges, to make sure that we’re abiding by the Constitution with due process and rule of law, then we’re going to have some problems here.

Of course, that trust has been eroded by the least transparent administration in American history. But Obama added, “You can shout Big Brother or program run amok, but if you actually look at the details, I think we’ve struck the right balance.”

Mr President, Mr President, I have found 2 people who have expressed some concerns about whether we can "trust" government.

The first is a fellow named George Washinton: “Government is not reason, it is not eloquence — it is force! Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.

The other is a friend of his named James Madison: “Wherever the real power in a Government lies, there is the danger of oppression.”

I am only telling you this in case you would like to have them investigated.
