Reader complains about my BS (Bumper Sticker) editorial

Voters areincompetent

‘Tis the season ofthe illusion of choice: When “the people” “consent to be governed” by anignorant and incompetent majority. Is majority rule equal to mob rule? Is therea legal difference between self-governance and consenting to be governed? Doesa voter/citizen have a duty to correct the error of their vote?
