    You still have the right to vote. You still have the right to voice your opinon. Can you please point out your right to "my beliefs put into law when it is presented as a vote to the populous" in the Constitution?

    Your right to vote isn't being infringed. You should never be able to vote against someone else's rights.

    So you were prevented from voting? If so, then I shall agree. And you're not allowed to speak your mind? If so, then I shall agree.

    You can vote for something all you want, but if what you are voting for violates the rights of others, then it cannot be accepted as valid law. So according to you, if the majority of the people in a State voted for slavery to be reinstated, then the federal government and the courts should have no say in the matter and slavery should once again be legal in that State. But it's a pretty stupid line of thought, especially considering that we are not a direct democracy. We are a Constitutional Republic. Your rights end at the rights of others.

    I'm having a real hard time figuring out how some people cannot understand this point. I don't know how many times it has to be explained, it's an entirely simple concept. We are a Constitutional Republic built upon the rights and liberties of the individual. We have installed checks and balances into the system to ensure that the rights and liberties of the individual are upheld. Seriously, I think some people need to retake an American Politics course.

    But when the populous is wrong or misinformed, the checks and balances kick in and protect the minority from being trampled on by the majority....

    It's call A REPUBLIC!! Welcome!
