I have completely changed my mind in the last 24 hours. What I am seeing is the failure of the two party system and of democracy in general. It's not so much that our democracy doesn't represent the people it's just that democracies historically fail by purporting to represent the people altogether too much. I thought that Romney was sincere and that he wanted to 'manage the country' into prosperity but there are too many 'third rails' that cannot be touched by ANY candidate. I don't, now, think it would work out even if he was elected. I see the Federal Government, and Sacramento, getting more and more extreme and overextended until they crash and burn much like Moscow at the end of the '80s. Unlike Pat Buchanan I am not weeping about it b
