Nice observations (as usual) by Rick Santelli. He notes an important difference between a republic and a democracy. In a republic, sovereignty rests with each individual. In a democracy, sovereignty rests with a group.

Majority rule (today's chic word is 'mandate') is not compatible with a republic. In an election where the outcome is 99 to 1, the rights of the 'one percent' are still upheld.
Rule of law, not rule of men.
