Basic Rights Aren’t Up for a Vote


By Gene Policinski First Amendment Center vice president/executive director

From the time most of us set foot on a school playground, if not before, we learn that in making group decisions, majority rules: If most of the kids want to play kickball instead of tag or basketball, we play kickball.

Later, we discover that democracy has a similar approach: Get one more vote than an opponent in an election, or create a winning margin in a legislative body, and you “win.”

Seems fair, at least on . . .
