The Minority Speaks – Remember Them
A petition with the necessary fifteen percent signatures of the populace has been turned in. The petition will require a special election concerning the issuance of a special bond to cover Stafford County Hospital’s expenses. The minority has spoken.
For any red-blooded American this process should make them sick to their stomach. America was built on the foundation that the majority rules. Yet, this silly process only requires a puny fifteen percent of the populace.
So, the minority has spoken. Remember them.
Remember them when nursing homes close.
Remember them when the Stafford High School closes.
Remember them when Stafford restaurants close.
Remember them when ambulance expenses go up because of volunteer departures.
Remember them you need an ambulance and there are none because volunteers have left.
Remember them when you need medical care and the closest facility is forty minutes away.
Remember them when the population plummets.
Remember them when your taxes skyrocket because there are fewer taxpayers to pay the bill.
Hopefully, somebody will float the hospital a loan to keep it open until the special election so the majority can have the opportunity to speak – and the only damage is the $8,000 expense of the special election.
The minority has spoken. Remember them. And thank them often.
* I will get a copy of the petition signatures and post the names of them immediately afterwards.
