The Logical Conclusion of Majoritarianism

Normally, I’d present the facts and comment on them. Thanks to YouTube, I don’t have to do that. See for yourself what democracy mob rule really is.

That’s why, in the wisdom of America’s Founders, we are a republic, not a democracy. It’s why nonsense like the National Popular Vote Plan are ill-conceived. The will of the people is instructive, but it should not be exclusive. We have principles enshrined in our Constitution to protect the minority viewpoint from unjust harassment and an outright ban on their liberty.

  1. Allowing candidates to win without pulling a majority of the popular vote is unacceptable.

  2. What would you have done in 1992 and 1996? Clinton didn’t win a majority of the popular vote in either election.

  3. Any candidate who comes up short should be required to participate in a run-off election. That includes candidates running for president.

  4. Don’t you think there should be a line separating my comments from yours? Using only a borderless name and date for separation makes it harder to tell who’s saying what.

  5. I’m using a free template, so the lack of a separator for comments isn’t my coding. I need to update the site design, but I’ve been focused on other things.
