I do not want a value topic. Now, if you were a member of the topic committee
and you got a survey showing 25% of the coaches wanted a value topic on the
ballot, what would you do?
I may be a little thick, but it seems to me that 75% of the coaches said
they did NOT want a value topic on the ballot and yet the committee is doing
it anyway. Which way would YOU say better represents the wishes of those
that elected the representatives?
Add to this the HUGE majority of students (those that will actually have to
debate this resolution), much more than the 75%, who said they did not want
a value topic on the ballot, and I think it becomes a clear case of the
minority dictating to the majority.
