"Representative government was not designed to work this way by the Founding Fathers. The political majority’s constant capitulation to threats of silent filibusters is piling up wins for an extremist minority in the Senate. On the failed gun control vote, the middle-of the road Washington Post editorial board called the Republicans who used their threat of a silent filibuster to win a “cowardly minority.”
That fits with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s accurate assessment that this Senate failed to pass legislation that has the overwhelming support of the American people, the support of most Democrats and most Republicans.
“There are very few things that 90 percent of Americans agree on,” Reid said.
President Obama called the Senate vote “shameful,” as he pointed to the clear public support for the bill.
The level of public support is not subject to political debate."

Sadly, many on The Demokrat Palntation's hear something from somebody who is among the 35% that can read, and the Plantation Residents accept the idiocy of "Folk" like Juan Williams as "Existential Truth".

For you Rocket Scientists on the Left......Find the word "Majority Rule" in the Law of the Land (Demokrats, That is the US Constitution)

The Majority,(The Collective Mob), "rules" in Lawless Countries mostly in Africa. In America the Law rules.

For you Sheeple:

If the Collective Mob decided that Amerika needs a "Melanin Level Scale" that will be the basis of who gets to vote, would you Demokrat Sheeple sit back and say, "yup, yup, yup anyone that is to Non-White, cannot vote"....Because the "Majority" wants it?

And we allow you Sheeple a Vote!(Which is not based on Founding Documents)
