In a democracy the majority voice makes the law. That is what I have been taught though out my life. In a tyranny it is the minority who make the law. I suppose we can say that California is soon to be added to those places which will be ruled by a tyranny. I stopped believing this sometime ago. Here are three examples why...
Supporters of Proposition 8, the California initiative that eliminated the right of same-sex couples to marry last month, reacted with surprise and dismay this weekend to the announcement by the state's attorney general that he had reversed his position and would ask California's high court to invalidate the measure.
Jerry Brown, the state's attorney general--and a leading candidate to replace Arnold Schwarzenegger as governor in two years--filed papers on Friday asking the state Supreme Court to overturn Proposition 8, which amends the state's Constitution to define marriage as only between a man and a woman.
Votes do not count. Wake up America. The left, the vocal minority, who care not a wit about your rights, who believe that you are not smart enough to rule your family, raise your children, your country, and are to stupid to be tolerant and therefore must be made to toe the line drawn by them. I can not make these things clearer than California. The people in California have spoken that they wish a marriage to be between a man and a woman, yet they have coerced the Attorney General to request that the proposition be overturned. Californians are fools, see what your "tolerant" attitude has gotten you? Nothing, especially no respect.
Minnesota, still can't determine who will be the next Senator. Every time it seems that current Senator Norm Coleman is in the lead, the exclown/failed Air America radio show host Al Franken(stein)'s supporters find more votes for him in a trunk of a car. Minnesota! The election was 7 1'2 weeks ago! Finish it up or rename your state Florida. To bad Richard J Daley wasn't in charge of the count.
In another tyrannical move the outgoing President, George W. Bush gave money away to the big three. In an act reminiscent of a Caesar,the big three received their money which was rejected by most Americans, and the Senate, and given more money than even the House had voted on, by none other than George W. Bush. Whereas the financial institutions were given money to play with and make their CEO's more wealthy, the Auto industry has three months to get up and run more efficiently. Yeah right. In march the Big Three will get more money and the government will own more of the business. By next Christmas, the UAW will own GM and Chrystler. This is a move to nationalize this industry nothing less. Health care will be next. America will roll over for this too.
Like the Girondins the Republicans will do nothing to forestall the Jacobin Democrats. the factions are on the same side...
Dieu Le Roy.
