We are a nation that has a government—not the other way around. And this makes us special among the nations of the Earth. Our Government has no power except that granted it by the people. It is time to check and reverse the growth of government which shows signs of having grown beyond the consent of the governed. We not only do not need unelected bureaucrats running our lives, we resent their attempts to do so.
-President Ronald Reagan at his first Inaugural
That last bit is the difference between Conservatives and Progressives / Socialists – we abhor that those that are not elected are creating law while Progressives glorify in it (else, why would they be so upset at what Congress and Trump are doing to eliminate such “rules” costing billions of dollars a year?).
