More precise would be to say:

In America, the majority (> 50%) of those voting (36%-56%) rules.

So essentially 18%-28% should rule. When you add that big companies are 
allowed to legally lobby (Only in America?) for their profit (and recent 
          lobbying affairs), and the fact that no one has access to 
examine the code of the software calculating votes (so software company 
can change the code to show what ever they want and in doing so change 
the results of election) and there is no paper trail, it turns out that 
in fact tiny minority rules in America. Australia is another matter. 
Voting there is compulsory and voter turnout is always ~95%. Sorry to 
burst your bubble on this one.

And you are absolutely ignorant (or at least perceived in this way) when 
it comes to package/distro building/recompiling. I can understand if you 
want to learn, but your way of learning is not productive, just extremly 
irritant. You need to burst your bubble of misconceptions and start over 
by first questioning every stand you have with thorough research before 
you accept it. It can be scary, but also a lot of fun, from first hand 
self-questioning experience I've had so far.
