Obama Goes Against the Will of the People?

To those friends of mine who insist that Obama is some sort of fascist because he is going against “the will of the people”:

A majority of Americans support stricter gun control.

A majority of Americans support gay marriage.

A majority of Americans support keeping abortion legal.

A majority of Americans support Obamacare.

And, just in case it isn’t blatantly clear, a majority of Americans voted for Obama.

Now, you may disagree with these positions — and you have every right to do so — but you’re in the minority. ¬†Sometimes the minority is right. ¬† But when you’re in the minority, a claim that you represent “The Will of the People” just doesn’t cut it.

So cut it out.
