Lancaster Voters: Really?
The City Council of Lancaster (population 150,000) has unanimously approved a spy plane to record the city. It's a Cessna with a pilot. I guess they couldn't afford a new Drone.
My question to the Citizens of Lancaster: Did any of your Council Members actually run on this issue? Was it part of the election?
That same question reaches all of us: Did we vote for Patriot Act or the other insanities that have been hefted upon us? Do our politicians run on such single issues?
Not usually. They do what they want once they get there, having been as vague as possible during the actual election process.
But, then we vote them back into office, or we vote them out but do not insist that the new guy repeals that stuff we hate...
Sorry folks, it is our fault. (and our grandparents, and theirs...)
It is time that We the People flex our muscle...even if that means making a fuss and a mess.
Or, we can simply let this continue...
One more question for the folks of Lancaster (and beyond): Don't your Councilmen shop at the same grocery stores you do...
Here's the story from Lancaster, if you care.
