An Interview with Dr. Larry P. Arnn

Larry P. Arnn, the twelfth president of Hillsdale College, received his B.A. from Arkansas State University and his M.A. and Ph.D. in government from the Claremont Graduate School. From 1977 to 1980, he also studied at the London School of Economics and at Worcester College, Oxford University, where he served as director of research for Martin Gilbert, the official biographer of Winston Churchill. From 1985 until his appointment as president of Hillsdale College in 2000, he was president of the Claremont Institute for the Study of Statesmanship and Political Philosophy. He is the author of Liberty and Learning: The Evolution of American Education and The Founders’ Key: The Divine and Natural Connection Between the Declaration and the Constitution and What We Risk By Losing It.

The following is adapted from an interview by Hugh Hewitt for the Hugh Hewitt Radio Show, conducted on the day after the election, November 7, 2012.

For any FReepers that may not know this,Hillsdale puts out an excellent publication (free) called Imprimis that features articles written from a conservative point of view. I believe they publish 6x a year.

If you have guns why would you give them up? It seems as though youll comply right to the end claiming you didnt.

The problem here, is the impulse to avoid being labeled.

Hugh and many of his Salem host associates, prefer to attribute Obama’s actions to ignorance, about what does and doesn't work in the world of economics.

Let's look at some facts, and then determine whether there may be a clear motive, beyond ignorance, that explains Obama’s actions.

1-Catastrophic levels of Spending, for non-value added programs, that promote government dependence rather that self-reliance.
2-Suppression of Industrial, Agricultural, and Energy production, by multiple Departments, including EPA, Agriculture, Interior, and Commerce.
3-Devistation in the Cost and Availability of NECESSARY Healthcare, in an effort to drive a gov’t monopoly in the management of healthcare.
4-Capping of Charitable Deductions, in an effort to increase reliance on Gov’t Programs (and garner more votes).
The best Charities operate at about 90% efficiency, when it comes to getting assistance where it is needed.
When gov’t attempts the same role, their efficiency is somewhere south of 25 %.
5-Religious oppression-Do whatever you like, within the 4 walls of your Church, just make sure you keep your opinions about public policy to yourself, and don't expose others to your beliefs....UNLESS, you're Muslim, then you will not be held to account.
6-Defense & Foreign Policy-Let’s kill any weapon system that might be an effective deterrent to our enemies, and undermine the integrity of our personnel with social policies and rules of engagement that render the ineffective. Let's embolden our enemies and shun our allies. Combined, these are not the actions or policies, born out of ignorance. These are the tools of the intentional destruction of America, use to "fundamentally transform" us into a failed Republic. It's well passed time to state this clearly.
