South Carolina is doomed.

Are these the best candidates we can find?

Good candidates have almost no chance of being elected. As this realization sets in, fewer and fewer good candidates will decide to run for public office.

As this trend continues, the electorate will be left to choose the most attractive charlatan. And then later, we won't even discriminate too well among the charlatans.

Consider the current President. Wal-Mart wouldn't even hire a clerk with no more of a background check and with no more experience than Barack Obama had prior to his first election..........and yet, there he is, not only President of the US, but a TWO TERM President, who by any standard is beloved by his nation. Kinda makes South Carolina not look so dumb after all.
