The Consent of the Governed

Rasmussen – “The notion that governments derive their only just authority from the consent of the governed is a foundational principle of the American experiment.  However, a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 23% of voters nationwide believe the federal government today has the consent of the governed. Sixty-two percent (62%) say it does not, and 15% are not sure”.

So tell me again, What is the difference between one who governs without the consent of, and so contrary to the will of, the governed and – a rapist.

And tell me again why we should tolerate rapists.
