is overtly sarcastic or cynical, I don't know why it would be there. I'm sure one could have said the same thing about an attempt to change the status quo
when the status quo
allowed for slavery, or discrimination based on race (a la Plessy) or when women couldn't vote -- what possible reason would men have for wanting to change that?
We can change for the better even if it means some in power give up some of their power. We've done it before, we can do it again, and it's just unAmerican and undemocratic to allow to stand a system which can ignore -- and has ignored on multiple occasions, including in recent history -- the fact that most people voted for one guy, and go ahead and establish another guy fewer people voted for as President.
