Peter Orszag,a former OMB director and current Citibank executive, suggests a less democratic democracy and I understand Governor Perdue may have a stupid solution as well like suspending elections.
I wish it were not necessary to devise processes to circumvent legislative gridlock, but polarization isn?t going away. John Adams may have been exaggerating when he pessimistically noted that democracies tend to commit suicide, yet, as we are seeing, certain aspects of representative government can end up posing serious problems. And so, we might be a healthier democracy if we were a slightly less democratic one
