The constitution isn't all that is keeping us from totalitarianism, thank
god.  There is something far, far stronger, and far more manifest, immanent
if you will:

An extremely strong notion of conservative federalism across the nation.  I
mean hell, we literally call them STATES.  I am left-wing but our
federation is the strongest bulwark against fascism that could ever
be--fifty ragtag groups of different brands of idiots who do not agree with
one another.  Say what you will about states' rights, but they are a hell
of a defense against jingoism.
