The Anti-Democratic Mindset On Display

This quote from an anti-smoker advocate reveals quite a bit about the mindset that has become embedded in the hearts and minds of many in the pro-ban camp. In actuality, it also reveals the unpopularity of their proposals:
Please do not open this up to the public; leave it the way it is. I ask all of you to not delay this ban. [Smoking] creates a hazard for health and safety,” said Summerfield, who was the only one who spoke in favor of the smoking ban in the open forum.
Damn the public! Damn Democracy! Damn those citizens who don't agree with my proposals!

Nice, huh?
