“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."

Newt Gingrich and the Latino Coalition
You tube link here
Newt Gingrich is everywhere talking about everything. He is the political slick spreading in all directions, much of what he is saying, making a lot of sense.
Gingrich is running for something. He won't win anything but he is far more interesting to listen to than Barack Obama.
It makes you wonder: How could a man like Obama become president and a man like Gingrich not?
