  •  Why aren't repeal thresholds unconstitutional? (2+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    To take the extreme example, a law could require a 99% vote for repeal. Basically, any such law exempts itself from the democratic process, regardless of the percentage chosen, if that percentage is anything other than the majority vote required by the constitution, either state or federal, as the case may be. How is including any repeal percentage requirement constitutional? Has this ever been challenged in the courts??

    The only entitlement that needs reforming is the inbred belief of the 0.1% that they are entitled to 99.9% of the wealth and 100% of the power.
