In light of anti-gay California State Senator, Roy Ashburn, coming out of the closet, the Senator defends his voting record, “I felt my duty—and I still feel this way—is to represent my constituents, not my own point of view….”

That's a bunch of shit!

I don’t want politicians voting on what the American people want—Americans, overall, are vastly uneducated on the many issues facing our country. I want politicans to use their heads, think for themselves, questioning authority and the status quo. I want our government run by intelligent minds and not heavily influenced by a public... out of which only 2/5 can name all three branches of our government.

Do we really want America’s stupidity to play more of a role in our government? And how does Sen. Ashburn know what the majority of his constituents really want? Is it always ethical to use majority rule?

Jefferson:
"All, too, will bear in mind this sacred principle, that though the will of the majority is in all cases to prevail, that will to be rightful must be reasonable; that the minority possess their equal rights, which equal law must protect, and to violate would be oppression. "
