Under A Cloud Of Suspicion: The ADLC Local Government
Suspicion is a virtue as long as its object is the public good, and as long as it stays within proper bounds. … Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect every one who approaches that jewel.
~ Patrick Henry
(USA Founding Father, 1739 – 1799)
Remember this, folks: The United States of America has the oldest functioning government in the whole world. No matter what is happening right now, our Constitution will survive, but the citizens must hold the government (at all levels) accountable and insist that all laws are followed and not abused. The government won’t do this by itself. The citizens must insist upon it.
