Never underestimate the stupidity of voters - and the corruption of the vote counters when push comes to shove.

Isn't cheating in politics SOP? Ever heard of Boss Tweed, Landslide Lyndon? When I was a kid in 60's SC, Chicago was infamous for dead people voting at every election. All O did was spread the system nation wide. What took the Chicago mob so long? What's unusual is that the GOP has forgotten how to play the game.
Don't forget the dems' best trick. They vote early and they vote often. And they even continue voting long after they're dead. When's the last time you heard of a republican precinct with a 147% turnout, or 100% voting one way? Now that's discipline!

You're insulting Rube Goldberg. Big difference - his contraptions worked.

I agree with your two points. I have to disagree with your zero government though. If we had no government, then the biggest bully on the block would be the boss, whether by hook or crook, or murder. “If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself. A dependence on the people is, no doubt, the primary control on the government; but experience has taught mankind the necessity of auxiliary precautions.” ? James Madison, The Federalist Papers
If it were affordable, there wouldn't need to be subsidies. And how can you add 59 DC departments full of new bureaucrats and 16,000 IRS agents (complete with SWAT gear and ammo) without adding cost?
The other 16% are the ones the GOP establishment wants to go after while tossing the Tea Party out of the GOP. That should win them a lot of elections.

Which republicans, aside from Paul, Cruz, and a handful of others, would be willing to make ANY cuts, let alone STEEP cuts? I'm talking about real cuts, not slight reductions in increases. The Tea Party republicans are the only ones willing to even raise the subject, and the GOP establishment berates them almost as much, and as often, as MSNBC, Pelosi, Reid and Biden.
They could have set up an Amazon or Ebay store and been up and running in no time - and dirt cheap too.
I disagree about Christie. The problem we had last time was, there were too many not-Romney's running and we split our vote so he was the last left standing. The last poll of conservatives I saw, Cruz and Palin were virtually tied for the lead, with everyone else, including Christie and Bush, far behind. If we tea partiers would get behind either Palin or Cruz from day one and let everyone know it, then hopefully the also-rans would drop out early. We need to remind the establishment that they tried Ford over Reagan in '76 and we got Carter. Then they tried McCain and Romney with a double dose of Obama. We need to wake up the establishment that we're all better off working together to run someone who is really a distinct choice, not just another big government dem wannabe.
