Letter: Basic tenet of our government

My fellow Americans, I just finished reviewing my son’s fifth-grade homework assignment on the Mayflower Compact and was explaining to my son that “majority rules” is the basic tenet of our government and its constitution. This got me thinking about our current political climate. There are some cynical elements in our political landscape that constantly engage in obstructive agendas that continue to undermine the majority’s wishes.

Once a majority has expressed its mandate at the ballot box, it is the fair and moral civic duty to uphold and support the implementation of the majority’s wishes.

Sabotaging progress is abominable and has a detrimental effect on our already fragile national psyche.

What part of the Mayflower Compact does the Republican Party’s leadership not understand?
