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?

"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. "
