05 ST Dead, need suggestions/experiences

134k on my focus. Drove to the gym today (3 miles from my house) and died then came back to life 3 times on the way. When it died, the engine almost went out and the dash flickered like the battery had been unplugged and reconnected quickly. When I went to leave the gym I tried to start the car and there was one flicker. Now, the car will not respond at all when I turn the key. It does not crank, nor does the starter relay even click. I can not even turn any lights on interior or otherwise. It is as if there is no electrical system at all.

Some things I think might be causing the problem:

1. Ignition switch shorted/bad.
2. Alternator is dead.
3. Short somewhere else.

Any suggestions, experience or feedback is appreciated!
