We have a representative democracy, not a majority democracy. Its a little different than that.Democracy that's based on the choice of the majority is a flawed system. The majority is the plodding section of humankind and is rarely right. The pioneers and trendsetters that have lifted society inch by inch from the morass of backwardness and stupidity constitute the minority.
Though there are small towns in Northern New England that are based on the majority for local stuff.
