According to a poll on CNN, something like 70% of the public thinks that congress overstepped its constitutional limits by interfering in the Schiavo case. 67% of the public believes the motives are purely political, rather than demonstrating a true regard for "right to life."

Congress people are responding to this by saying they do what they think is right, rather than responding to public opinion.

What I'd like to know, then, is how our "representational democracy" differs from the so-called "totalitarian dictatorships" of, say, Fidel Castro or Sadam Hussein?
