The recent blowup about Arizona law has really pissed some people off but what if I were to tell you that it was 'will of the people' since 70% of Arizonians support. That alone should justify taking away the supposed rights of others (Idon't believe it does but I'm just saying so for arguments sake). Those that oppose this will probably try to stop it with the constitution at which point we will have to consider if the constitution is 'democratic' since it can possibly veto the 'will of the people' in order to protect someone's rights. This is why the founders never believed in democracy since it can not protect the rights of any individual or the minority of voters. We can't have democracy and a republic at the same time since one will eat away at the other. A republic will kill the 'will of the people' with the constitution while a democracy will devour any constitutional protections of an individual's liberty in the name of 'will of the people'.
