Don B on the absurdity of any candidate, BO specifically in this case, asking voters “to believe”. His words are excellent and point out that politics is religion. He asks for freedom of religion – freedom from the politics that one might disagree with. Alas, Federalism has run roughshod over Republicanism and State’s Rights and we are now left with essentially a majoritarian democracy. There is no longer any freedom from the tyranny of the majority.
