What you described isn't even a democracy it is a dictatorship (not much of a difference between the two but this makes it much more clear). The United States by law is a Republic where the vote of the majority cannot infringe the rights of the minority. Politicians ignoring the law while their flock encourages them does not change the fact of what the law is.

For everyone clamoring for better availability to mental health professionals be careful what you ask for.

I did watch the JS session with Ron Paul and Stewart only proved that he has a very shallow understanding of literally everything. Of course he is a comedian that advocates a socialist system that for the past 75ish years has proven a failure in every country in which it has tried. It's sad that soe many people take their political guidance from him - might as well turn on Jerry Springer for relationship advice. No wonder this country is so screwed.
