Quote Of The Day — September 3, 2013

Individual rights are not subject to a public vote; a majority has no right to vote away the rights of a minority; the political function of rights is precisely to protect minorities from oppression by majorities (and the smallest minority on earth is the individual).

    Why is this so darned hard for people to grasp? After reading this the first thing that came to mind was the “announcement” the Resident made in the Rose Garden last week when he referred to the United States as a “constitutional democracy.” WRONG. We were invented to be a Constitutional Republic. Good grief.
