Well since Wilson initiate the graduated income tax, deemed the Constitution was living and flexible, segregated the military, and was behind the move to use case precident rather than the Constitution as a primary source....I'd say he started the ball rolling. If you want to include TR who wanted government to form a partnership with business, I'd go along with that. FDR and LBJ are responsible for most of the bureaucratic expansion. You disagree, then let's hear it.

Election Day 2012 will not be a presidential election. It will be a plebiscite.

Americans will not only be voting for a president (and a House and a third of the Senate). They will be participating in a plebiscite on the definition of America.

If Americans re-elect the Democrat, Barack Obama, they will have announced that America should be like Western European countries -- governed by left-wing values. Americans will have decided that America's value system -- "Liberty," "In God We Trust," "E Pluribus Unum" -- should be replaced.

The election in November is therefore a plebiscite on the American Revolution. The usual description...
