Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch.
Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote.

The word democracy stems from Greek meaning 'rule of the people'.  Equality and freedom are most important characteristics here.  It is a form of government whereby all eligible citizens have an equal say in decisions that affect their lives.  With that comes liberty which represents the freedom from arbitrary control.  As we go forward in this season of elections, be grateful for both tenets.  Listen, learn, think and exercise your right to vote.  It is certainly one of the greatest privileges in the world.
