THIS MONDAY 9/24 7PM AT THE FIRE HALL!
It has been said that Back To Democracy is creating a divisive atmosphere in the village by bringing the impeachment resolution to a vote by the Village Board. I think there is some truth to this, and I apologize for that. Perhaps Democracy is not the most perfect system of government possible. There will always be a certain amount of discord in a functioning Democracy. Perhaps some Athenians complained of this, and would have preferred a return to autocratic rule. Winston Churchill said "It has been said that democracy is the worst form of government except all the others that have been tried." It could be argued that life would be easier under the rule of a benevolent dictator. George Bush would like to be our dictator as evidenced by his "unitary executive theory" and Dick Cheney would like to be the brains behind him, but the trouble is that the majority of the people don't believe in his benevolence, and are not ready to give up on democracy. So we would like to use the tool of impeachment, that the founders left for us, to try to restore Democracy, and our Constitutionally Limited Democratic Republic. Participate in Democracy - Monday 9/24 7PM at the Fire Hall.
