for example remember "SOCIALIST" France they tried to soak rich for 75% and the supreme court of France mon deiu ? the purpose according to the constitution of taxes is too raise revenue not punish people for being rich.. so the majority party had to surrender and lower their tax rates

Despite the backlash Hollande clung to the principle of the supertax even after it was dismissed by the country’s highest court, fearing a revolt by his leftwing allies. The tax was subsequently adjusted to a 50% rate payable by companies after the constitutional council ruling in December 2012.

The final nail in the coffin came from the former investment banker who is now France’s economy minister, Emmanuel Macron. A former economic adviser to Hollande, Macron described the supertax as “Cuba without the sun”.

With the party leftwingers having marched out of government in the days and months following the appointment of the openly pro-business Manuel Valls as prime minister last March, it was only a matter of time before the tax was dropped. The prime minister confirmed it would not be renewed in 2015 during a visit to London in October, where he addressed business leaders.

so you see very few democracies are without some constitutional limits

there is nothing so special about our Republican values

SOCIALISTIC EUROPEANS have the same limits placed on majority rule.. understand vous compris?
