    Deal with it.

    How would you like it if I moved to have a referendum on whether to revoke your citizenship? That is what could happen if you take your nonsense to its logical extreme.

    I see.

    It makes it just hunky-dory for a minority to dictate what my kid learns in school? or be told I'm evil because my beliefs are not the minority's beliefs? or be a categorized as a second class citizen because I am black or hispanic or female or not 'normal'? [although I could go with the not normal part]

    Nope I would not like it ... and that is why I have voted in every.single.election. ... period.

    •  Yes, democracy = rule of the majority (0+ / 0-)

      Which is why this country was not established as a democracy. Switzerland's constitution has incorporated elements of direct democracy, which apparently has been a mistake.
