@Michael Boldin@West Texan The problem is that no system can be designed to cover all contingencies, and at some point we MUST trust men to make informed and ethical decisions. That's the real problem - we don't have men of character to trust.

The Founders did their best to guard against damage done by a Caesar, but realized that the character of the electorate had to meet a certain level of responsibility for our system to work. Unfortunately, as a nation, we seem to have passed that level going downhill in the fast lane.

If we find ourselves trembling under the lash, should we blame ourselves? Our freedom and our lives may have required a better defense than we gave them.
