Letter to the Editor

In response to Brad Tupi's letter “Tyranny, not liberty” (July 3 and It is not the Trib that has an unusual definition of “liberty.” It is Mr. Tupi.

He seems to equate voting with liberty. When the majority votes to impose its will on a minority, that is tyranny, not liberty.

We created the judicial branch of government to protect the minority from the majority and to prevent efforts by the legislative and executive branches of government to expand their powers beyond what the Constitution permits.
