    Is it your assertion in the above statement that the societal decision was made based on the results of elections? If so haven’t you been arguing that elections are not the voice of the majority of society but rather those who choose to participate in elections?

    I have no idea what the hell that means to what is being discussed.

    Can you explain it in detail so it makes some semblance of sense?

    The decisions that I say have been long ago made for the society we live in is that we do not simply let people die at the emergency room door, or starve to death, or freeze to death or any number of things because we judge they are stupid or irresponsible.

    The main difference is that there is no individual mandate in Romneycare, and no individual tax as a result.

    Now, since Romney is obviously a pioneer in healhcare, why oppose him?

    But not to get a drivers license, as Haymarket argued.

    I believe Kal's underlying point is that due to the low voter participation the legislative branch does not represent the majority of society thus the minority is making the decisions of the majority. Haven't you argued this before?
