Voting is (MATHEMATICALLY) Abdication of Consumer-Rule and the Circumvention (by all regulatory actions + deficit spending that takes place after elections) of Consumer-Will.
When a corporation does not like the "voting" of consumers (the daily dollar vote) he has two choices: Make a better product (or somehow improve B2C) or Go to Gov't to counter consumer-will.
Leader-worship or Hero-worship is the defining "right-brain" based flaw in our evolutionary code -- not that I'm saying we shouldn't develop right-brain thinking; it just needs to be tempered with logic.
It is not logical to give one man the power of millions to make consumer-decisions and expect individualism and liberty as the outcome.
This includes Ron Paul. Because the ballot-box is still a corporatist ideological tool (since "everyone" can vote under corporatism) born from a capitalist ideological tool (only Wealth WASP men could vote for most of that period).
Ideological Tools (NEVER) serve individualism, by definition they are "organization" based and one must always ask what he can do for his organization and not what his organization can do for him
One man did not "ruin" this country and one man can't "fix it"
---Shake things up? Certainly.
