“Eternal Vigilance Is The Price of Liberty!” Thomas Jefferson


Democracy belongs to the people…to all of the people. By definition democracy means equality and fairness. Democracy  doesn’t mean just being fair and equal to the Mayor’s Tea Party crony’s. Liberal democracy entails free and fair elections. It doesn’t mean you can dismiss the vote of half the voters because you  feel like it and then appoint another crony who received no citizen votes.

The resolution of the Aberdeen council tie-vote was neither a  free nor fair democratic process. It corrupted the democratic process by discarding the vote of half the Aberdeen voters. This political corruption impairs the integrity of the Mayor and the council members who supported it.

Can Aberdeen citizens trust and respect the judgement of a Mayor who does not trust or respect the will of the voters????
