"majority vote is tyranny of the minority"

- Mary Matalin

I shall remember this remarkable statement. It captures the Republican mindset perfectly. That this whole representative democracy experiment has been a mistake. As we've seen, Republicans prefer narrative to facts. They assert that "The American People" want this or that policy, which amazingly always furthers the Republican agenda of cosseting the rich folks. Sort of like when in a monarchy, the king was said to be the embodiment of the peoples' will and therefore everyone else should shut up (or face the consequences).
