Is our government tyrannical?

I had a private conversation recently where I used the language, “tyrant” to refer to some decisions by our federal government. The person I was talking to said, “Pastor, that’s a little overkill. Isn’t that word a little strong for what we live with in our culture?” So I wondered if I am maybe using the wrong language. So I decided to try to define what a tyrant looks like. I think I’ve done it and I think we need to consider this biblically.
