How is this democracy, where the few have the power to manipulate elections?
But if things were equal, would you want to manipulate people in this manner? I mean most of these job that elected people holds, at least at the local level, are thankless jobs that anyone in his right mind would not want. How else are we going to fill them unless we pay someone?
If I was mayor of this small town I would teach everyone how to grow enough food to feed an army, and then let someone else worry about whose army we have to feed. This is not a practical structure to run on 🙂
And yet the slogan of our town is, “the sun always shines in The Dalles.” I hope that is an exact quote, but it is so lame, what does it really matter?
