If the Left really cared about the will of the people, then please explain these headlines:
To begin, more than half of the country believes the Bible should have more influence in today’s world, with 56 percent of respondents claiming that the holy book has “too little influence in society today.” And 53 percent report reading the Bible to be closer to God.
[Yet, the Courts and Left forcibly push religion from any and all aspects of public life – in violation of the Constitution and will of the people. The 1st Amendment guarantees freedom of - not from - religion. SO much for democracy where freedom of conscience is concerned.]
Currently, support for stricter gun control laws stands at 47 percent today, down from a high of 57 percent just after the shootings. Thirty-nine percent want those laws kept as they are, and another 11 percent want them made less strict.
[Yet, in spite of the very clear language in the 2nd Amendment and the majority opinion of the public, our govt. is trampling our rights to self-defense. So much for democracy where the right to defend yourself and the rest of your rights is concerned.]
President Barack Obama said he could not imagine a circumstance in which a state banning gay marriage was legal,..
[Funny, he doesn’t seem to have a problem violating the Constitution where it clearly restrains his desires, but here he says the Constitution mandates something that it clearly leaves to the States. So much for democracy when it comes to community standards and a State’s ability to amend its constitution.]
I guess when it comes to democracy and balancing the budget, neither it nor spending cuts matter to the Left. And on the issue of taxation, the opinion/will of the people doesn’t seem to matter there, either:
Health care is another issue where the will of the public doesn’t seem to matter to the Left:
Now that the truth is out about the global warming fraud/scare, the people have turned against draconian govt. ‘solutions,’ yet the will of the people doesn’t seem to matter to the Left on this issue, either:
We can go on, but – if you are among the rational – I think I’ve made my point about how much the Left likes ‘democracy.’ It doesn’t; it just likes to claim it supports democracy because it is an idea near and dear to the heart of most Americans. But, as with most things connected to the Left’s agenda, we need to apply the 180 degree rule to everything the Left says.
