The difference between Reagan and Obama could not be more stark. Reagan had a great and abiding faith in the common citizen, and in the common citizen's capacity for self governance. Reagan epitomized abundance mentality.
Obama epitomizes scarcity mentality. He has no faith in the common citizen. Obama has no faith in *you*. Obama thinks you must *be governed* (for your own good, of course). And so you cannot be trusted to responsibly keep and bear firearms. You cannot be trusted to purchase on your own the goods and services that best suit your own wants and needs. In fact, you cannot even be trusted to define your own needs.
Tocqueville has a name for that which Obama embodies: soft tyranny. I've had a bellyful of it. Have you?
