Glad we are not a democracy

An AP article posted by Yahoo News describes a poll in which 44% of American respondants favored restrictions on the civil liberties of Muslim Americans.

I am deeply ashamed. Both that so many can be so wrong headed, and that so many have apparently never read the Constitution of the United States of America. Fortunately, we are a constitutional republic, rather than a direct democracy. So even if this crowd reaches 51%, they still cannot legally do this short of a constitutional amendment. Not that that has stopped us before.

Can the so called terrorists hope for anything greater victory than to cause an open society to select to close itself?
