3. sometimes a simple majority isn't enough

 

that's what the protesters are saying about the constitution. in the u.s. we need a super majority and then a super super majority to ratify an amendment just to be sure.

you seem ready to dismiss the protesters (air quotes and all) but on what basis? maybe you think theocracy is a good idea for egypt and the secular revolutionaries who brought us the arab spring? a super majority isn't needed there because ... why?
