"Freedom and liberty have nothing necessarily to do with democracy and populism.

"One person surmised that democracy equate[s] to two wolves and [a] chicken voting on who's for dinner. Remember that, and also remember that just because you see a group yelling loudly, that doesn't mean they give a tin shit about your freedoms."

-- Commenter ABetterFuture on Alternet's republication of Rev. Irene Monroe's TBP post "A fleeting moment of democracy for California's same-sex couples."
