As to your ending question, it seems in name only now good doctor.
Constraining gooberment, choosing whom to elect wisely? Public indoctrination, aka "public education" effectively re-programmed generations into fanatical adherence in the belief that gooberment is god. Such a pity. This beautiful experiment, this awful responsibility demanded of each individual, was the last best hope for true evolution of humanity. Such magnificent promise intentionally, maliciously destroyed. Thanks Dem/Prog/Lib cabal members. (D) means DEATH. It's what they live for.
