Democracy and Power 116: The Citizen’s Vote August 9, 2010

Posted by seeineye in : Politics , trackback

The national budget must be balanced. The public debt must be reduced; the arrogance of the authorities must be moderated and controlled. Payments to foreign governments must be reduced. If the nation doesn’t want to go bankrupt, people must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance.
– Marcus Tullius Cicero, 55 BC

The American voter has a single vote, for a person to represent them in Congress, the Senate and the Presidency. The citizen has no vote on policy.

With the growth of the federal government, it is imperative for the citizen to understand the process. Only through appreciation of our government, can “We the People” begin to seek means of beneficially controlling the power of government.
