'But it is the common person--you and I--who, by participation in government, not just voting, should determine governmental policy. As Abraham Lincoln observed, "Wise men established these great self-evident truths, that when in the distant future some man, some faction, some interest, should set up the doctrine that none but rich men, or none but white men, were entitled to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, their posterity should look up again at the Declaration of Independence and take courage to renew the battle which their fathers began."

A lot of Presidents, Senators, and Representatives since Mr. Lincoln, apparently didn't find his words to be worth worrying about.

The fact that we do, and are, but they still aren't, speaks volumes about where we're headed, like it or not.
