We do have an ever growing segment of the population who believe that our Constitution is outdated, the same people who are more than willing to give up freedom for security. The proof is in the number of people who have a problem with freedom of speech, their speech in their mind is acceptable, mainstream and righteous while the speech of those with whom they disagree borders the Red Line of unacceptability the Red Line that they are more than willing to protect by any means necessary. Unbeknownst to them they want to be ruled by a large government that they favor, a government that will pick the winners and losers by mass regulation. Not only do they want this as a protection for themselves but they want to force it on others for their own good.
The greatest thing about the last 8 years it provided a complete lesson in Civics, now maybe the next 8 years will provide a tutorial in Governmental Economics along with Micro and Macro Economics as we tackle health insurance, public policy and tax reform.
Many have learned nothing but anger in the past 8 years and are at this time are so delusional in their anger I'm afraid they will not learn these lessons that are penitent to a free functioning society.
So does America deserve a dictator? Whatever we sow we shall reap!
