    What restrictions? If there is sufficient majority, we can obtain an amendment to do pretty much anything we desire...except take away inalienable rights... you would agree wouldn't you? How does that equate with your views on the majority?
    You missed way too many civics classes and clearly are out of touch with what the majority wants.

    Yeah, to Hell with gays' right to the pursuit of happiness! They arent Americans, they dont get to have that. Oh wait...they are Americans...but so what? We dont like them, they are icky and make me feel funny.....let's punish them for exercising their rights. And then let's punish their kids too. They deserve it, because....oh wait....

    Why do they deserve it? What are they doing wrong again? You havent explained that yet...remember?

    Maybe you should have someone explain the Constitution to you.

    Not just the uneducated that is silly. There is a whole bunch of willful ignorants, homophobes and bigots.

    That's elitist. I don't care. 'Elitism' is not a dirty word. Conservatives of old understood this - and supported the elite.
    They also forget that the founding father of this nation were not ignorant morons either.

    You clearly lack the understanding of how courts work. Can you point to a single law that was made by judges?

    Yes I have. Have you read Madison? Maybe look up tyranny of the majority.

    You may also look at all the protections for the minority in the Constitution.

    Just a thought.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
