Raging Right Wing Republican

For those of us who are politically informed, and therefore Republican.

Proposition 8 passes

The country rejected the GOP's moderate wing on Nov. 4th, not conservatism. You can't win with Democrat-lite when the people can just choose a real Democrat. Surprise. Just look at Proposition 8, that conservative throwback to a darker time: while the rest of the country was flooded by a sea of blue, it passed in California. If it's going to pass there it will pass anywhere. So it looks like the country is in favor of traditional marriage, and it is the liberals who are the extremists in rejecting it, not conservatives in backing it.

Very relevant to this discussion.

The point is that the majority's viewpoints don't matter, it is still the government's job to protect the rights of the minority. (For example, most Germans in WW2 were antisemitic, but should we just do the will of the majority?)
