"I was struck by the necessity to defend liberty as outlined in the Constitution."

The problem is that *everyone* believes they're defending liberty as outlined in the Constitution. Being "struck by the necessity" is the first step, not the last. Years of careful study should follow, but rarely (if ever) does.

Unfortunately, the Framers of the Constitution assumed that the right to vote would be extended to the those who were properly educated and rigorously well-informed. That hasn't been the case for a very long time, and the results are obvious.

Naturally, I'm not referring to you, or to anyone else, specifically. But it seems almost moronic to still believe that a government of the people, by the people, and for the people is a logical and viable system, when "the people" in question comprise this particular citizenry at this particular time.

We'd probably do better by taking our chances with a benevolent dictator. No President or Congress elected by the current voting populace could possibly justify our continued clinging to the mere fantasy of "democracy."
