<Unfortunately, we don't follow our Constitution, so the Constitutional protections are not effective. Now we essentially have the mob rule that Jefferson warned us about.>Since this thread is about Asperger's Syndrome, let me point out that black-and-white statements like "now we essentially have the mob rule" is an Aspie-type over-simplification. While I am quite concerned about fiscal deficits (particularly since spending trends disadvantage the young and inhibit productive investment), the U.S. does NOT have mob rule. The U.S. recently completed an orderly, well-organized election process that included decisions made by the majority of the voting public on local, state and federal levels.Please study history for true examples of mob rule, such as the Cultural Revolution in China and the ethnic massacres in Rwanda.Your argument isn't helped by untrue assertions or exaggerations, even if some of the points are valid.Wendy
