Do Not Call becomes Go Ahead And Call

It figures that big business would try to find ways to debunk the national Do Not Call list, probably the only good idea to come out of this country since we took on the eagle rather than the turkey as our national bird.

This story tells you pretty much what you need to know. What I don't get is that, even though the govt shouldn't intervene in business in most cases, this is clearly a case of the people speaking as a majority and saying what they do and do not want. Isn't that the basis for a democracy? And while it is true that the nature of big business is to completely discard the idea of giving their customers what they want, it IS the job of the govt to support the majority. Clearly we have spoken. Shouldn't SOMEBODY out there have our backs?
