Yes...Why can't we all seek first to understand, and then to be understood?
Well, We The People did literally implore the CC on more than one occasion, however, that was observed as a sign of weakness which of course turned out to be an enormous mistake for every member of CC who was incapable of constructing in their closed minds an image of the true will of The people. It turned out to be a gigantic error.
COAF was not seeking then, is not seeking now, nor ever has sought a fight -- but we do suggest that no government official should ever confuse our gentleness for meekness, for every sleeping bear will some day awaken. Please make no mistake about it Mr. Stoffa, We The People are prepared to fight to the Supreme court of the United States of our great America if pushed to that point. We have asked you and CC repeatedly not to test our resolve, but as a norm most of you have refused to listen, and that sir is why we are where we are.
The ex-chair has already expressed publicly that he is willing to accept the referendum, so why aren't you willing to do the same Mr. Stoffa? Is it possible that the ex-chair is still manipulating you behind the scenes, as well as that other person? Or, are you really acting on your own? Indeed, any reasonably intelligent person understands that there is no rational rhyme or reason for this game to be played, other than a belligerent attempt at total domination by a few.
Northampton County does not have to be the object of absolutism, so why is it? Conceivably because we have a few public servants in our local government that believe in autocracy, presenting an illusion of democracy. In so doing they are openly considering their populace dimwits, fools, and boneheads. Well, what most although not all have come to discovered is that The people are not as imbecile as they thought.
Mr. Stoffa for example, was not competent enough to envision that We The People would actually acquire the the high number of 19,631 valid names necessary for a referendum, so he encouraged us to do so. It is clear today that no one except the dedicated COAF members believed that it could be done. But instead COAF was so determined, or to use Mr. Stoffa's word, "hellbent" enough to collect more than they required - 23,391 to be exact. That caused Stoffa to scrambled like a chicken without a head. Unfortunately for Mr. Stoffa, as well as others we're sure, they were aroused to the understanding that the impossible had not just become possible...but reality. Stress and anxiety in all probability set in causing the unbelievers to pinch themselves to ascertain if they were in fact dreaming, experiencing a nightmare for certain, because The People had in fact accomplished the unthinkable...oh yes we did.
This could have been and still can be a Win-Win scenario. All that CC and Mr. Stoffa have to do is accept the will of The People. Mr. Stoffa, at your earliest opportunity commence the process, so that you won't leave office with the worst possible legacy of any politician in the history of NorCo...ever.
And remember this CC and Mr. Stoffa, some people live history, while others make it.
