For Ronald Reagan what is the difference between the American government and the American nation? What is his vision for the American nation? What is his vision for American government?

Ronald Reagan considered American government and nation as two different things. According to him the government was a bureaucratic setup that was used to control the governmental functions while this setup must be run in accordance with the wishes of the nation and what has been told by the American constitution.

According to Reagan, the American must be able to take control of the United States and guide his government. He portrayed himself to be against establishment and wanted to be seen as a person who wanted to give power in the hands of the American people from the hands of the establishment.
