Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – [r]epublicanism is a way of life, folks. It’s not a fad; it’s not a trend. Your forefathers practiced it, but alas, it seems just a bridge too far for the average hoi polloi American sheeple citizen these days. We defer to Mordor on almost everything it seems. As a matter of fact, we defer to it with such regularity, I often wonder why some people protest so mightily about it. What’s the big deal? Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Mike: [r]epublicanism is a way of life, folks. It’s not a fad; it’s not a trend. Your forefathers practiced it, but alas, it seems just a bridge too far for the average hoi polloi American sheeple citizen these days. We defer to Mordor on almost everything it seems. As a matter of fact, we defer to it with such regularity, I often wonder why some people protest so mightily about it. What’s the big deal? You empower it with its omnipresent oppressing presence. You defer to it and say that all of your rights come from it and they are all defended by it. You say that everything under the sun is subjected to its oversight and overview. You purport to say that there is little that it fails or cannot be relied upon to do.
Then when it does these things, [mocking] “Wait a minute, I didn’t mean that!” — “What did you mean?” — “Well, you can do that, but that’s just too expensive.” — “So you would accept the overreach, the usurpation of power if it were just a smaller usurpation?” — “That’s right. We need Tea Party and government watchdog groups to get in there and make those things smaller.” — “So you’ll accept all those things, you just don’t want them in the size they currently are. Do I have that right?”

These things are incompatible, ladies and gentlemen. Those of you that hold this schizophrenic point of view need to go bang your heads against the wall or go back and read some Jefferson and Madison and Taylor of Caroline. If you don’t want to do that, go back a little further. Go read some David Hume, Idea of a Perfect Commonwealth. If you don’t want to do that, maybe go back and read some St. Thomas Aquinas and really get your head screwed on right. You can’t have and demand of a government that oversees 310 million, you can’t ask it to do that and then be surprised when it has to erect such a gargantuan state in order to execute the mighty task that you have given it, then protest mightily against it when it seeks to discharge the duty that you have charged it with.
This is where I think part of the disconnect is. Your average American sherson out there, the ones saying: I don’t much mind if they eavesdrop on me. I don’t have anything to hide, so if they’re just listening to my calls, if they’re just cataloging where I am and taking the metadata, I don’t really have an issue or problem with that. That’s not a big deal. All they’re getting is metadata. As I pointed out earlier in the program today, if you gather enough metadata, you can put a pretty accurate picture together of what someone is, who they fraternize with, and where they fraternize. This is not hard to do…
