"We The People" Speak Out

In East Tennesse folks have decided that enough is enough. The residents of Knoxville, Tennessee and Knox County have taken their government back. Corruption was rampant, nepotism was the rule of the day and government waste was the norm. Sounds just like Washington. If it can happen in Knoxville, Tennessee , why could it not happen on a national scale? I think it's time for this to happen in Washington.

What say you?

Ticker,

I lived in Knoxville in my youth.

Great article reporting a wonderful civics lesson.

When or if Greensboro ever grows up I want it to be like Knoxville. Trouble is that it is becoming more like Detroit every passing day.

See Washington Post here:
