Vibrant democracy

After more than 45 years living in this country, it appears to me that the electorate in our nation has not yet gotten two important memos:

1. A vibrant democracy depends on two main things: education and participation.

2. There are two kinds of politicians: “rulers” and “governors.”

Therefore the electorate must become increasingly more educated and more involved in the voting process so that Congress becomes increasingly more populated with members honestly interested in governing, not ruling. Failure to do so will bring severe consequences to the nation.
