“Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by "a network of small complicated rules" might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called 'hard despotism') in the sense that it is not obvious to the people."

Why You Pullin' for Barack or McCain?
You will not find a better argument for getting the US government out of public education.

The Republicans failed miserably.
