Here is a typical scenario I have seen on DP a lot lately. Let's use gay marriage.
"The Judge was right to declare this law unconstitutional"
some conservative's response
"But 7 million people voted for it!!! Way to go judge just disregarding what the people want"
This could be interchanged with the whole mosque ordeal also, I've seen people say "but 60% of NYers are against it."
I'm just curious as to where this logic comes from? I thought it was Majority rules, Minority rights..Not Majority rules, majority tells minority's how to live there life.
One theory I could see as reasonable, the Republican party is off base with many minorities and surely that has cost them in numerous elections so over time a generally bad taste has formed within the Republican party regarding minorities. Might as well turn my flame shield on now though
