The Blessing, The curse, and the Hope of Democracy
The blessing of democracy is that the single vote of the poor man can equalize the single vote of the rich man.
The curse of democracy is that the single vote of the irresponsible voter can annihilate the single vote of the conscientious voter.
The hope of democracy is the single vote of the poor but conscientious voter, for together, the poor comprise the majority and hold the real power in a democracy.
As a nation, let us all celebrate the blessing, abhor the curse, and protect the hope of democracy.
