    That is the key. The system we have now is ingeniously designed, and has every opportunity to be successful - IF we collectively and fully participated. Of course we don't. Many do not participate, whether by taking the time and effort to be informed, or involved in dialogue, or even showing up to vote. Changing the system does not overcome those flaws.

    As to the accretion of rules upon rules;I once had a unique and fascinating and informative opportunity to see that in action.  A new environment, new leadership, new participants - great opportunity to shed those layers of rules. It was a great vision. And this went wrong, and that didn't work, and these were disturbed, and those problems occured, and slowly (but not teribly slowly) those rigid rules re-emerged.

    from a bright young conservative: “I’m watching my first GOP debate…and WE SOUND LIKE CRAZY PEOPLE!!!!”
