Theory and reality

In theory, we have a representative form of government.  That’s not always obvious in the execution of public policy.

Let’s see if it ends up being applicable to our choices with regards to the Ukraine…

By a roughly two-to-one margin (56% vs. 29%), the public says it is more important for the U.S. to not get involved in the situation with Russia and Ukraine than to take a firm stand against Russian actions.

The new national survey by the Pew Research Center, conducted March 6-9, 2014 among 1,003 adults, find more disapprove (44%) than approve (30%) of the way the Obama administration is handling the situation involving Russia and Ukraine, while roughly a quarter (26%) offer no opinion.

The public has spoken.  Is anyone in Mordor D.C. listening?
