    Actually, we're doomed because of people. Generally when people have a poor grasp on reality as evident through poor grasp of grade-school concepts(and I'm just using this as an example, grammar; when people don't know the difference among "there", "their", and "they're"), it's safe to say they aren't highly intelligent individuals who also have the right to vote.

    And that right there is a recipe for disaster.

    The right has moved so far right that RR would now classified as a moderate-left democrat. Scary, huh?

    Even scarier: the left has moved right along with them, and now tends to embrace positions that would have been associated with the conservatives a couple of decades ago. And it doesn't just happen in the USA:

    When the German Social Democrats were voted into office in 1998, they embarked upon a "reform" that looked like the Chicago School's wet dream. The result? Roughly fifteen years later, our social security net is a wreck, privatization has profited no one except for the investors, decent jobs have been replaced with short-term, easily discarded wage-slave labour, and the vast majority of the populace is considerably poorer - and the top 1% enjoy an unprecedented amount of wealth.
    Back in the day, the Conservatives hardly knew how to criticize our government; the only thing they could think of was to accuse them of not going far enough in their epic quest to pander to the interests of the richest percentage of the populace.
