Has America lost the ability to self-correct?
Good question, raised here by DCBlogger, and in a conversation this evening.
In 2000, 2004, 2006, even 2008 I'd have said "No, of course not." But maybe eight years is a long time to be wrong. Especially when you've got severe* election fraud in 2000 (FL), 2004 (OH), and 2008 (TX D caucuses), and neither party does a thing about it, except to fund more of the same kind of voting machines that enable more fraud. Theft, democracy can survive. That happens all the time, through recorded history! But normalizing the theft is another matter. Democracy cannot survive indifference. And yet, both parties are indifferent. What to do?
NOTE And by severe, I mean "what we know about."
