The speed with which Pres. Obama sold out Honduras compares unfavorably to the slowness of his support for freedom in Iran. The president reveals his intent to sell out freedom and purchase world acclaim and domestic control.
Michael Ledeen and others have been writing about this. Ledeen also quotes Alexis de Toqueville, viz.
American Tyranny Redux
…equality is not a defense against tyranny, but an open invitation to ambitious and cunning leaders who enlist our support in depriving ourselves of freedom. [Toqueville] summarizes it in two sentences that should be memorized by every American who cherishes freedom:The… sole condition required in order to succeed in centralizing the supreme power in a democratic community is to love equality, or to get men to believe you love it. Thus the science of despotism, which was once so complex, is simplified, and reduced, as it were, to a single principle.

Two good sentences from Alexis de Toqueville, and another good sentence from Michael Ledeen, "equality is not a defense against tyranny, but an open invitation to ambitious and cunning leaders who enlist our support in depriving ourselves of freedom."
