You might be right, and in that case they deserve the lawsuits. Why does the government always feel the need to pander to the squeekiest minority,
instead of attempting to reflect the sentiments of their entire constituency? They should never have passed the law in the first place if they felt
it would be unpopular or impossible to enforce. They should have spoken up and said the law would be unpopular or impossible to enforce, and refused
to push it through.
Politicians have this stupid misconception that we always know what we want. That just isn't true, what we want is strong leadership that will speak
the truth to us. Sometimes the population has ideas that just won't work, or sometimes a small group of people makes an idea look popular through
their actions, when in reality the majority thinks it is ridiculous, but they are not speaking up about it, because they are too busy working and
I sure would love to see a politician come out and speak the truth one day. Tell us stuff we don't want to hear, or shoot down a special interest
group or lobby and speak up for the silent majority. That would be presidential material.
