There's an old pun that tells us that, "In a Democracy, your vote counts, but, in Feudalism, it's the Count that votes.".
So, what about the representation (or lack of it) that we receive in our national and state capitols?
Is ours a Democratic Republic or simply modern day political feudalism?
All of which much reminds me of another entry herein, "Mouseland, a Fable for Our Times".
