    This is why I must and did vote Strict Constitutionalist.
    Please don't take offence but it is a significant difference. I agree with everything you said above except this country would cease to exist as a "Constitutional REPUBLIC".

    I think part of the problem is that the U.S. is already slipping or has slipped into being a Constitutional Democracy with the majority starting to vote themselves benefits from the national treasury at the increasing expense of a shrinking minority. Also the slim but growing majority is voting more and more to give up their individual rights and further empower the Federal Government while supporting the weakening of the Constitution which has the purpose of limiting the Federal Government.

    Good points and I probably should have said Republic instead of Democracy. And no offense taken at all.
