Ancient Tradition - Modern Imperative
Guest Editorial - Mark Leibman

Most of our fellow 7 billion human beings live their lives according to the whims of a king, or an emperor, or a dictator, or a general, or the chairman of the ruling party. For most people, it has been this way for most of history. Donít like the boss? Tough. Wish to see some improvements in the programs of government? Too bad. If you are the typical human being, you are stuck with what you have for leadership.

America is different. Our founding fathers adopted the institutions of representative government, and the generations since have expanded the right to vote to virtually all citizens. In the tradition that began in ancient Greece, carried through the great age of Rome, and has been the hallmark of American constitutional government for more than two centuries, we will go to the polls on November 5th to choose our leadership for every office from Senator and Governor to City Council and School Board Member.

The right to vote is an integral part of the American system of freedoms and responsibilities that, along with capitalism, has produced the most productive society in all of human history. Just as we choose how much and what kind of education and skills we want, and where to employ our talents, and how to spend or invest the proceeds of our labor, we also choose our legislative representatives and executive branch leaders to preserve and extend the common good.

The United States of America is a miracle in progress, and you can be a part of it. We havenít reached perfection, but we can get a little closer if good people pay attention and take action. Right now, that means learning about the election on November 5th and casting your ballot.

Club Louisville...
Just to clear up some confusion that apparently still exists; the Louisville Community Discussion Forum is now limited to those have a verified account, and with all the things that are going on in the world, this was really the only way that it would work. 

There are about 100 folks currently registered, and they are using their real full names, addresses, and phone numbers to verify that they are really Louisvillians.

First, the information you provide will never be used for any purpose other than authenticating the registration, Second you don't have to contribute anything to be a registered user, but you DO have to be registered to participate. 

Here is how it works:

1) You send in your registration by clicking the word, register, on the left side.
2) You include First, Last name and a LOCAL PHONE NUMBER, which we use to call you and just ask if it is really you. You say, Yes, it was me that registered! We say, Thanks! Have a Great Day! ..and go get a cup of coffee.
3) We then approve the registration and the system sends you an email to congratulate you.
4) You receive the congratulations email, click on the confirmation link and you are activated.

This only needs to be done once ever. I apologize for the steps necessary, but I can tell you that we have already identified and rejected 5 applications where someone used someone else's name, so it is necessary.

You can also upload a small photo of yourself, if you would like, but everyone can be completely confident that the person you are having the discussion with is exactly who they say that they are. That's the good part! It is a great tool for Good neighbors, and sponsoring communication and discussion is what it is all about! Questions? Give me a call: 234-2085
