This is a letter to our friends –

Mob rule is a dangerous thing

Mobs are often driven by emotion not reason. Mobs are the ultimate result of majority rule without governing rules. “The tyranny of the majority.”

Yesterday I listened to a popular talk show. The host and all the callers save one lone voice were criticizing the way we select the President. This, I believe, is the result of generations of miseducation in our public school system.

This needs to be SHOUTED from the housetops – – –

He is not the President of Americans.

He is President of the United States!

The states get together and select their President!

Majority rule only works in a small group where the majority is accountable! As the group grows, accountability decreases. Human nature degrades the system and rules are distorted and broken. Ultimately lawlessness is replaced by tyranny.

The beauty of the astounding system our founders designed is its ability to shift the flow of power and force down into the hands of the individual. If you distrust the leaders and policies your representatives choose, you are free to change the representatives you select at the local level. Choose not to do so because of ignorance or apathy and who is to blame?

My next column will be a reprint of the 2013-01-10 column demonstrating that the system is still available to motivated individuals who want to make a difference.
