votes in Ohio, Mississippi a reminder about democracy
NYT post-Election Day editorial makes me feel good about the moderation that is hard-wired into the democratic system:
These policies, and similar ones in other states, were passed in an arrogant frenzy by a Tea Party-tide of Republicans elected in 2010. Many of them decided that they had a mandate to dismantle some of the basic protections and restrictions of government. They went too far, and weary voters had to drag them back toward the center.
