But the rejection of the bailout is better than a rejection of screwing the many to benefit the few; it's a rejection of the typical big-government back-room deals that are presented to the people as fait accompli. It's wonderful that so many people took the time to write, phone, fax, and email their representatives to voice their displeasure with the bailout (and, one assumes, threaten to vote against the said congress-critters in the upcoming election if they should reject vox populi). This, folks, is democracy in action, 21st Century style.
