    Can only go so far.  As the Republican Party becomes smaller, they try to increasingly insulate government from voters.  This is one more gambit in that program.  Problem is, that can only go so far, probably no further than in the original Constitution.  The Republican Party will continue to dwindle, however, and they will get so small that they will not even be able to control a government as insulated from voters as it can constitutionally be.  Then the trend will reverse.

      meantime.  Plus ALEC is opposed to doing anything to combat global warming.  By the time the Republicans have dwindled into insignificance, I fear that global warming will be so far advanced that human extinction or near-extinction will be inevitable.  We can't afford to wait until the Rethugs collapse under their own weight.
