Obama Is a Statist, Not a Socialist

Pres. Barack Obama is not a socialist. He is a thoroughgoing statist, perhaps the worst in American history.

And with Wilson, FDR, and LBJ, he’s got some serious competition. Republicans in Congress lack the leadership to challenge the president’s audacious power grabs. More important, they lack any serious philosophical basis for doing so. The acronym RINO is an oxymoron, for the name “Republican” in fact designates someone with a commitment to nothing more than maintaining political power. The purpose of maintaining that power is to, well, maintain that power. >>>

Edward H. Crane is the president of the Cato Institute.
