GOVERNMENT FOR SALE

An op-ed column by Dan Thomasson in today's Miami Herald got my attention.

Thomason asks how can someone who scrapes up one hundred bucks to give to a candidate or a political cause expect to be heard? He says The truth is he should save his money. Is not his free speech being impinged upon?

I know that his commentary and concerns are about American politics but much of it relates to where democracy is headed in this municipality, country, and province.

Often money and influence trump grassroots activism because we let it.
