Democracy has failed when Rule of Law is replaced by Rule of Men. In the case of the U.S., Rule of Law has been replaced by Rule of the Teleprompter. By the way, anyone besides me wonder who is responsible for writing the script read by Obama on the Teleprompter? Is it Eric A. Blair, aka George Orwell?Don't even bother voting in November. Why bother? It does not matter which candidate or which party is in office. Obama's extraordinary election was fueled primarily by a massive backlash against the destruction of the Constitution and implementation of totalitarian policies by Bush. As an example, note that Bush signed and utilized more Executive Orders than all Presidents before him collectively.
An Executive Order, the ability of which should be completely, unequivocally abolished, enables a President to avoid and and all of the checks and balances in our system, like Congress and the Constitution, and implement his own rules. Obama is now on track to sign more EO's than Bush: "President Obama has granted an 11th-hour request by Attorney General Eric Holder to exert executive privilege over Fast and Furious documents..."

It's bad enough that Obama and Eric Holder have enabled the persistence and rapid growth of financial industry fraud and theft by refusing to apply the law to the Too Big To Fail banks. And now Obama is going to let Eric Holder walk away from the Fast and Furious scandal. Democracy is dead and we only have ourselves to blame. Anyone who can possibly defend a vote for Obama is completely brain dead. If you have to vote to feel like an American, you don't have to vote for Romney, write in Ron Paul.
