The Battle for Freedom and Democracy

For those of you who may recall the recent effort to remove our incompetent mayor from office you may recognize the name of Paul Jacob who was retained to help lead the effort to collect signatures for the recall petition. Jacobs' business, Citizens in Charge, has been involved in initiative campaigns across the country. Jacob had an interesting commentary on the initiative process, "The Status of the Union," which you can find at:

In concluding, Jacob notes: "The battle for freedom and democracy is not taking place just in a far off land in fast flickers on your television screen; it rages in a city hall and state capitol near you. And if we citizens ever stop fighting to protect and to enlarge our freedom and our control over our democratic republic, we will cease to be No. 1 in the world."
