Well golfnut31316 one thing ya need to know about Soundoff is that it exists for the idiots amongst us to vent mostly unintelligible complaints. They use their anonymity to make whatever claim they wish.
But, what I find to be kinda silly, is that you are coming here to these pages to complain in anonymity just like the Soundoff fools.
Golfy: I agree. This country was founded on the principle of "majority rule." If people don't want majority rule, then they would probably be happier (har har) in a country with autocratic rule. One problem: autocrats usually rule with primarily their own interests in mind. So unless you are the autocrat, you're usually not too happy with the rule.
Kingston has done a great job representing the interests of this district - if you measure job performance by "bringing home the bacon." We are going to miss him in the House - just as IMHO we are going to miss Saxby in the Senate.
I read that and promptly put the whole comment into the mental circular file.
Seb, generally we do go by majority rules but at the same time the minority should have some protection against the majority. I think in most cases, we do a good job maintaining that balance.
I believe our system does provide the minority various protections against the majority. But in those cases where the minority/special interests trump the majority, we have to wonder what is really in the best interests of the country. But it can't always just be a matter of percentages, and therein lies the controversy.....
(It seems that he will go with what the people want — not what we want).
I thought we were the people. I believe the people that call into the Sound off are uneducated morons, of course some may have a GED.
