JPFO Alert: WA Private Sales Ban Referendum Shows Danger of Putting Rights Up for Vote

Today's JPFO Alert notes that putting fundamental human rights up for vote--even a vote you fully expect to win--is dangerous.

To endorse bestowing on voters the power to vote for fundamental rights, is to lend the veneer of legitimacy to the power of the people to vote against them. With scores of billions of dollars in the hands of people desperate to trample those rights, and with scores of millions of low-information voters prepared to vote for whatever the most prevalent and slickest TV ads tell them to, this experiment with "democracy" may just prove John Adams right.

And as always, if you haven't seen all the great JPFO Alerts written by David, Nicki, Claire, and Mama Liberty, you owe it to yourself to fix that.
