Or so many of the wingnuts would like to have people believe
You go out and vote, if you can jump over the obstructions being created by the talibangelical party.
You fail to elect the real American Party!
Then you expect to govern!!
You goddamned commie heathens!!!
You tyrannical pinko fascist taskmasters!!!!
How dare you!!!
The only conclusion I can come up with is that they really don't like democracy, unless of course they have the majority.
And of course the President is a Kenyan and we all know how hard the wingnuts in congress tried to fight that falsehood for obviously racist reasons.
So majority rule when presidenting when black is despotic.
Goddamned majority rule is like Hitler!
On the other hand gerrymandering is a true sign of a functioning democracy; until democrats do it; then it is an abomination.
The majority in the house being voted in by a minority of the people is of course normal.
The distorted nature of the vote when electing the senate is normal.
The distortion created by corporate funding of elections is fine and dandy.
Just so long as the wingnuts win.
Until then Democracy is tyranny. Jefferson!!!
Yeah, yeah, yawn.
