Interesting change WaPo made to this hed: "Some thing just shouldn't be decided by [the people => referendum]" pic.twitter.com/zSP6YkJmBI— David Auerbach (@AuerbachKeller) June 27, 2016
Via Instapundit, who says: "They love democracy until it turns out the wrong way" and "If you really believed that, though, you’d favor repealing the 17th Amendment."
But we don't have the referendum on the national level. Can you imagine how awful it would be? I object to the referendum on the state level too. I agree with the WaPo headline in the modified form.
The original form is hilariously embarrassingly revealing and elitist... and yet it's also sound. We have individual rights and we don't submit everything to majoritarian choice.
