Polpular Sovereignty

Is a government in which The People rule.

  • Popular sovereignty indicates that the mandate of the people created government, and that political power comes from The People. However, in practice, political leaders abuse their power because they consider themselves sovereigns, instead of public servants. Sounds familiar NorCo?
  • It is the basic principle of the American system of government; that the people are the only source of any and all American governmental power, that government must be conducted with the consent of the governed. Wow...is this true in NorCo?
  • Popular sovereignty is the belief that the state is created by the mandate of its people, who are the source of all political power. We need to share this with the ex-chair and some of his blind followers.
So what has happened in NorCo? Are we returning to a state of dictatorship? Can we really trust our local government? Hard questions that require truthful answers.
