I agree with your sentiments, Paulus. However, majority rule will not be overcome unless/until the whole current system implodes. Societal breakdown is causing all of our problems. Chief among these are the rejection of the 2 parent married family, uncontrolled immigration (legal and otherwise) from third world countries, and lack of sufficient work due to automation/computerization. Pat's many writings on the immigration problem have proven to be prophetic.

"What the president's campaign did was focus on certain members of his base coalition, give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote, and that strategy worked."

Thus did political analyst Mitt Romney identify the cause of his defeat in a call to disconsolate contributors.

Republicans piled on. "Completely unhelpful," Gov. Bobby Jindal told Wolf Blitzer. We don't advance the "debate by insulting folks."

"A terrible thing to say," Chris Christie told Joe Scarborough. "You can't expect to be the leader of all the people and be divisive."
