That sounds a lot like democracy to me. Whatever happened to opposing tyranny of the majority? If the majority of Americans wanted all the mentally
ill castrated would that be something good to stand for too? The people are definitely not the legitimate source from which to draw legal decisions as
they are willing to trade someone else's rights for their own.
Besides do you think the US House of Representatives would vote in favor of these tax increases? Not a chance. They promised Americans 'no new
taxes' and would hate to end up like Bush, Sr. in 1992.
FYI, the House of Representatives doesn't have to vote for or against a damn thing in order for the President to raise the taxes on the rich. All he
has to do is to let the Bush tax cuts expire and bingo, it's a done deal. Then he can tell the republicans in the House to go suck a pickle, which
by the way, is a lot nicer than I would be to them.
