Subversion of Democracy

During his speech at the University of Michigan commencement today, Obama stated,
Moreover, democracy in a nation of more than three hundred million people is inherently difficult. It has always been noisy and messy; contentious and complicated.
I'll agree democracy whether it is three hundred people or three hundred million people. Since consensus is rarely reached, someone always must tolerate things not being the way they want them and, if freedom is to exist, the majority must concede many rights and powers to individuals.

The "noisy and messy; contentious and complicated" part comes in when a faction tries to subvert democracy and freedom in order to force their "way" upon everyone as the Democrats have done with health care and aim to do with immigration, financial reform, and the rest of their totalitarian agenda. (Not socialist, totalitarian)
