Well, in a country with only TWO political parties, that's a correct statement, but look at those countries with like 4-5 parties or more. THAT's worse. Even 21% of the population can well take away the rights of the other 79% if they voted as such:

(names are purely fictional)

Right Party: 21%
Labor: 20%
Center Party: 20%
Green Party: 19%
Left Party: 20%

Aha.
