“The past was a promise kept, the future is a promise we must keep”
It is a tenet of our system of government, and under our
constitution, that neither the rich, nor the powerful, nor the well
connected, have any more rights than the least among us.
When that basic tenet is distorted or discarded, and when the interests of the few begin to overshadow the concerns of the many, our democracy must inexorably suffer for it.
