Actually Mark Levin was the first to use the term "statist" as he eloquently outlined the soft tyranny we live in. Note he thought this long before obama was elected. Now tocqueville's soft tyranny is googleable, and if you want to have a discussion as to where we are in a soft tyranny I'd be happy to let you know. Do note I thought of and its searchable I believe on some forums, I described this nation as a soft tyranny, before levin did.
Like I said, A bigger bucket is what you need to seek.
