    Harry Reid. No, I don't think we should end the senate. Just Harry Reid. He already looks dead, anyway.

    Still waiting for the evidence regarding the allegation that the majority votes to take away the rights of the minority. And a big clue for you - its NOT in the sacred federalist papers.

    well lets make it simple, and what i just talked about, the ACA, a piece of legislation, voted on by majority vote, in both Houses of congress, only in the peoples interest, that mandates that a citizen MUST BUY a private sector product,............. against his will<------------------AGAINST HIS WILL.
    .....one group dictating to another group, what they must do.....


    states...were referendums are placed on a ballot for the people to vote [majority rule], on issues of private property........smoking bans.

    the people take away the right of an owner ,to run his own business according to his own likes....



    the whole idea of having the senate in state legislature hands , was to prevent majority rule, democracy......people acting in a collective capacity.

    "The true distinction between these and the American governments , lies in the total exclusion of the people, in their collective capacity, from any share in the latter, and not in the total exclusion of the representatives of the people from the administration of the former"

    I didn't make the allegation.
