On the Record #4 - Involved Citizens
“In our form of government unity is derived from our ability to test political assumptions now codified in the 1st Amendment under "free speech."
The vigor generated in our policy discussions, general debate, and the manner in which we hold ourselves accountable helps to normalize and tamp down the extremes of both unruly behavior and unruly (bad) public policy.
When citizens get involved, voice an opinion, and lead, insights are generated that lead us to a middle ground, agreeable to none, excitable to none, but put up with by all.
This framework guarantees a slow moving and under control government as designed by our Forefathers. This framework further beholden us to the Constitution of the United States of America.”
