Its not about the vote. Reliance on Democracy is what got us into this mess. It is about adherence to the US Constitution.
Congress has the right to work within its 17 enumerated powers... but because of an ignorant voting populace, has managed to go way beyond its Constitutional powers.
The US Code of Federal Regulations is around 56,000 pages and it has been posited that at least 55,500 pages contain unconstitutional codes that go beyond the scope of the 17 enumerated powers in the US Constitution.
The courts were supposed to shoot down any and all laws that strayed from the 17 enumerated powers, but they dropped the ball almost as soon as they were formed.
The Executive Branch was supposed to be able to stand in the way of unconstitutional power grabs, but most Presidents have been as treasonous as the Congress.
Last, and most important are "We the People" who have been derelict in our duty to keep our government restrained and limited. "We the People" are the final decision makers and we the people have become complacent and ignorant of the dangers of tyranny. Those who seek power and seek the means to control others know this and exploit this ignorance and complacency.
All of this is leading us down a very bad road and we had better put on the brakes and restore the Republic before we go off the cliff.
The Second Amendment means nothing if the Constitution and the Republic that supposedly guarantee it are almost completely ignored.
More than 56,000 pages of Unconstitutional US Code and the fact that a majority of Americans seem to believe we're a Democracy proves my point.
