There Is much that goes on In the business of running the government of the United >tates that is not understood by many Americans, The very structure of our democracy provides that the desires of the many will be decided by a very few; a very few that are placed in office by the process of the free election. We support the person, or the political party, which we believe will best represent these desires. This process has seen no significant change through the years since the birth of our liberty, almost 190 years ago. During those years there have been many crises, some of which were resolved much better than others, and one, in fact, which temporarily destroyed our Union. Yet, 100 years after that particular disaster, we are still united, and have become the wealthiest and proudest nation on earth. We have great aspirations for the future and face immediate challenges that our fathers, and even some of us, early in our lifetimes, would not have believed possible in this century.
