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.
