do not forget Resonse post!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Majority rule is the principle that the greatest number of votes should exercise the greatest power. Majority rule supports the best ideas of society by ruling in favor of what the majority of people have expressed that they want. The worst ideas of society are shot down when the majority says no to what they do not believe in, what they do not want, or what they believe will bring destruction and dissatisfaction to an already fragile society.
Example of best and worst:
Imagine after a year of serving as president of the United States, the president is required to take a one month leave of absence to refresh and rejuvenate. If the majority ruled in favor of the president taking a month off to refocus on himself and his family, without the pressure of presidency, he might come back with a new perspective and ready to press forward with more success. If the majority ruled in disfavor, they might believe that things could fall through the cracks, war could break out and he would get pulled back in, or they might think that he does not deserve a break because they did not vote for him, or because they are not in agreement with his decisions thus far.
Fellow students, what do you think could go right or wrong in this situation?
