Economics professor Richard Ebeling has written an open letter to President Obama challenging him on three of his authoritarian policy initiatives.

If a ordinary citizen — a neighbor perhaps — tried to interfere with your choices the way Obama thinks he is entitled to, you’d say, “Excuse me, but I can make my own decisions, so mind your own business.” Of course, Obama thinks himself entitled to behave in ways that regular people aren’t. As Ebeling puts it, “Hope and change really means command and control.”
