So you're saying democracy protects the minority, even though majority rules in a straight democracy?

Glad I didn't go to CMU....

You would make a perfect politician. You never said American democracy in your first post. You just said democracy.

See? If that's what you think a DEMOCRACY is, not an American democracy, Chinese democracy (GNR), or whatever other democracy there is, you are very wrong.
