9. It might be correct to say that pure majoritarianism isn't desirable...

...where whatever the mob wants, the mob gets. That's why we have a constitutional democracy, that puts some rights and liberties beyond the reach of simple majority rule.

However, what he's defending is minority rule by Republicans, no matter what, simply because he wants to claim Republicans are the only ones capable of maintaining liberty, peace... and whatever that other thing is.

Disgusting.
