I think the chance of Romney doing something about government is why we should support him (at least in swing states).
And this is branch. Let's see how this works.
"But on economic issues, the one confident point is that in an age of bloated government, the correct vote goes to the party, when the campaigning is mercifully done, that is more likely to limit the rate of government growth, if not shrink the size of government altogether. This election cycle, that party is the GOP."

I'm not sure it can. Most of the world (with the exception of the failed UK attempt) have moved to proportional representation. Unfortunately we're locked into a two-party system. Historically the only way to add a third party is to boot one of the two, and I can't see that happening any time soon.
Even something simple like France's obligatory presidential runoff would go a long way.
