Paulus, I think Buchanan is suggesting what Peter Schiff was, that of the two major party candidates, Romney is the more likely to fall back on founding principles when his "corporatist" dealings bring about the nation's collapse. I detect a high degree of doubt in his statement that begins "If a President Romney held to that rule..." I think he's just trying to put up the best hope.

If enough people do the same, and Johnson can garner, let's say, 10 or 15 percent of the vote in these states, then we have set up a legitimate, non-corporatist candidate for the future.

"Providence has been pleased to give this one connected country to one united people -- a people descended from the same ancestors, speaking the same language, professing the same religion, attached to the same principles of government, very similar in their manners and customs, and who, by their joint counsels, arms, and efforts, fighting side by side throughout a long and bloody war, have nobly established general liberty and independence."

So wrote John Jay in Federalist No. 2, wherein he describes Americans as a "band of brethren united to each other by the strongest ties."
