16. "tyranny of the majority" in a democracy?

How does that work? This just crazy talk. Majority rules if you don't like it persuade people to your point of view. That is the repubs problem they don't like having minority opinions so they want to push the majority around. We should put things up for a vote and our representatives should stand behind their positions and if the people they represent don't like it, a MAJORITY will vote them out. That is how it works. If you don't like it move to China.
