But the Constitution does not call for minority rule. It calls for a representative republic wherein the majority chooses the representatives who determine policy.
As long as these policies do not infringe on the rights guaranteed by the US Constitution and Bill of Rights. No amount of representation can take these basic, inherent rights (i.e. freedom of religion, speach, press, assembly, trial by jury, due process, right to counsel, cruel and unusual punishment, etc) guaranteed in the US Constitution away.

One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we've been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We're no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It is simply too painful to acknowledge -- even to ourselves -- that we've been so credulous. - Carl Sagan, The Fine Art of Baloney Detection
"You can't convince a believer of anything; for their belief is not based on evidence, it's based on a deep seated need to believe." - Carl Sagan
"It is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring." - Carl Sagan, The Demon-Haunted World
