Quote from ZASHAGALKA
We are NOT a nation of mob rule. Just because you want something from government doesn't mean that government has the authority to do so. We are a Constitutionally limited Republic. We are so, on purpose. Don't tread on me.
You are so wrong...
The government is constitutionally allowed to do whatever the people want it to do. That is and was the whole point of our government. What the people want. Even giving the people and government the ability to change the constitution as they see fit.
We either actively tell the government what to do or we passively sit by and allow it to do what it wants. Either way, we the people, are give our implicit approval.
Also, EVERYTHING is mob rule. Sure, we are designed to limit the amount of mob rule that takes place but let's face facts.
President's reflected the mob's image of power, older white men. In fact, that image only changed with Obama because the half of the ruling mob and the majority of the minorities formed a new mob.
The mob does rule America but the mob is very fickle my friend.
