"I really am happy to see Prop. 8 knocked down, and no, I really don’t give a shit about the 'undemocratic' nature of a court voiding the hateful, anti-liberty will of the people. I believe in freedom and am willing to use democracy as a tool -- or to push it aside as needed -- in order to maintain and expand freedom and minimize the constraints placed on human action by the coercive power of the state."

    When you put it this way, of course! But a great many people on the Left pretend to favor democracy–indeed, Ralph Nader's "movement" is called economic democracy. Many prominent people on the Left claim they are genuine democrats–except when the vote goes against them. I ran across this in California when a referendum against the oil companies failed and all sorts of Leftists went on record claiming that the system was rigged, etc., and so forth. That is hypocrisy.
