  •  So you've given up on Democracy (0+ / 0-)

    and decided that the only way you'll get what you want is mob rule?

    •  You have lost the argument (0+ / 0-)

      because you are putting words in my mouth.  Those were not my words.  I don't give up ever and the people in MI were never a mob.  

      You are blind if you have not been able to see the absolute democracy that is happening in WI.  But we all have our blind spots.  Mine is in thinking that we all are connected and we all have some things in common.  And that, obviously, is not happening here.

      •  What is "absolute democracy"? (0+ / 0-)

        Apparently it is something different from "The candidates with the most votes win and then pass the laws that they want."

        Democracy includes protests, filibusters, and quorum busting.

        It doesn't include political coercion via strikes or attempts to physically prevent a legislature from meeting and voting.

        Absolute democracy seems to have the same relationship to democracy as Democratic Peoples' Republics have to democracy and republics.
