Rick Santorum Says What Conservatives Really Think of Democracy

via FOX News

Last week, voters in Ohio passed ballot initiatives to legalize marijuana and codify abortion rights, both reflecting broad national consensus.

Former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum criticized the democratic process, arguing that “sexy” issues like abortion and marijuana attract more voters and should not be put to a vote.

His comments reveal a deeper right-wing animus toward the current state of democracy, as conservatives increasingly rely on antidemocratic means to advance their agenda. (Trending: Chilling Surveillance Program Under Biden Exposed)

This reflects a longer lineage in the history of American conservatism, rooted in the exclusion of certain groups from political life and the assumption that men of property must speak on behalf of the lower orders.
