Mike Murphy is an astute observer of...
As a country, we are at a crossroad. If, like me, you believe in smaller, more efficient, and less intrusive government, simply vote for me on November 6th.

Thank-you and God Bless America."
We've all heard the objection that political conventions have become empty kabuki theater. The high drama of multiple ballots is dead and gone. Uncertainty about the outcome is no more. "Today," laments political guru Mike Murphy, "delegates are bound through the application of TV ad ratings points, not machine deals.

It seems a shabby ending to a great tradition. It's time for a mercy killing."
