There is no such thing specified in the Bill of Rights.  I just
downloaded the BOR from and did a
search for both "majority" and "minority".  Neither word appears in
the document.

In fact, most of the ten amendments protect the people (the vast
majority) from tyranny by government officials (the tiny minority)
 - just the opposite of what you state.

I think we've reached the point where emotions have outpaced logic.
