"Why shouldn’t the public have deep doubts about Obama’s government?"

The Deficit of Trust

There is no logic in trusting a massive government that is the primary source of information about itself. There’s no wisdom in accepting the “sale” of irrevocable, unaccountable government programs on faith. It’s foolish to accept lectures on investment or employment from a political party that believes itself immune to the laws of supply and demand. It’s humiliating to let the President tell you he can’t “afford” to give you a tax cut. It’s madness to entertain complaints about your lack of trust from someone who believes the citizens of America have too much control over their lives and fortunes. A just government respects the deficit of trust between free men and the politicians they grudgingly empower to maintain order.
