Closing Note for Monday, Sept 26th 2005.... (You Know Im Right)

As the left gets all geared up for the week in news, due to their large turn out for the weekend protest. I have been noticing a continuing trend of people (myself included to a degree) beginning to think: If that many people show up, and you look at the polls, there is a slim majority that believe this way. The President should be taking this into account. If 51%, or more, of the people believe in one thing, then shouldn't the President be acting in a way as to represent those people?

But then, I stumble on to a quote that reminds me why our nation is great. Why we have not dropped into the abyss quite yet.

"Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch."
-Benjamin Franklin

We do not live in a Democracy, we live in a Representative Republic. If we did not, the whim of the masses would rule, right or wrong. Thank God they don't.
